Egyptian EPC contractor Petrojet has been awarded the Guinness World Record for the largest floating roof tank for its 175,000 m3 (1.1 million bbl) crude oil storage tank in Ras Badran, Sinai, Egypt.
The double deck floating roof is 110 m in diameter and weights 1,000 tonnes. Raising the roof from assembly level to maintenance level required 240 synchronised hydraulic jacks. Petrojet built the tank for the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum.
‘A big thank you goes to the Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum and our clients for entrusting us to this national level project. A big thank you goes to our team for bringing their A-game this time, and every time,’ says Petrojet in a statement.
