Upgrades to a storage tank at Jamaica’s Petrojam Refinery will start shortly.
Quality Plus Contracting Company was awarded the $43.5 million (€36 million) contract to repair the terminal’s number 12 petroleum tank on 18 July.
$5 million of the total contract sum has been set aside for unforeseen costs, the minister with responsibility for information, Sandrea Falconer says.
The contractor company is expected to have completed the tank repairs within 100 days.
The work required to restore the storage tank includes replacing the roof, floor, top shelf course and top angle. A non-destructive examination of the tank will be carried out, and it will be sand blasted, primed and painted.
