GTT has announced that the construction of the two LNG tanks, ordered by Energy World Corporation (EWC) in Southeast Asia, is progressing well.
In 2009 and 2011, EWC and GTT signed two contracts for land storage tank construction in Indonesia and the Philippines, to be equipped with GTT’s GST® Membrane Full Integrity System. For both projects, GTT is supervising the detailed design of the storage tank containment systems, providing technical assistance on site during installation and will also assist the operator during the whole tank life.
The first project between EWC and GTT is the Sengkang LNG site development project, in Keera, province of South Sulawesi in Indonesia. To date, the walls of the 88 000 m3 tank are complete and the roof installation will commence soon. Installation of the containment system is planned for early 2015.
The second project, consisting of a 130 000 m3 LNG storage tank, is being built for LNG Hub Terminal on Pagbilao Grande Island, Quezon Province, in the Philippines.
Stewart W. G. Elliott, Chairman and CEO of EWC, explained that it is a significant construction step for the Philippines first LNG receiving terminal and for the Indonesian liquefaction plant.
Philippe Berterottière, President and CEO of GTT, added that these projects are significant first steps on the return of GTT membrane type land storage systems to the global market.
