Jurong Port and Oiltanking have embarked on a joint venture tank terminal project involving the construction of 19 storage tanks.
Rotary Engineering has secured the engineering, procurement and construction contract for the $140 million (€128 million) project.
The project comprises 19 clean petroleum product storage tanks, pump stations, valve manifolds, firefighting system, slop and waste water system, utilities, building, jetty topsides and interconnecting pipeline from Jurong Port to Oiltanking’s tank terminal.
The terminal, situated on 16 hectares of land, will also be installed with a terminal controls system to ensure efficient operations.
The facility will be located directly opposite Jurong Island’s petrochemical hub. It will have an initial capacity of 232,000 m3 with the potential to add another 230,000 m3. It will be supported by jetties with a draft of 16 meters, capable of berthing vessels up to 120,000 dwt.
Roger Chia Kim Piow, chairman and MD for Rotary, says: ‘The demand for liquid bulk storage remains resilient, and Rotary as an established brand-name in this field is well-positioned to capitalise on opportunities that arise.’
