Project of Fuel Storage and Distribution Base, in Itabuna, Bahia, Brazil, with premise of use of technology and project decisions aimed at increasing productivity, high performance operation, sustainability, flexibility of operation and a fast, clean and waste-free work.
It stands out as sustainable premises: the use of state-of-the-art automation technology, telemetry, loading and unloading systems, floating seals in tanks, LED lighting, pump drive system with frequency inverter, line pressure transmitters, collection and reuse of rainwater and biodigesters in sewage treatment.
The average time for construction and conditioning of a bauna-sized terminal is two years. The estimate for this terminal is one year.
Testimony / Feedback
The work of this terminal was a great success for several reasons. Historically we have no reference of a work of this size performed in such a short time, 6 months. We can highlight as one of the relevant points the level of commitment of the project team and planning of the work. The goal was to carry out a fast, low-cost construction, ensuring minimal interference to neighbors, with minimal waste and waste generation. We were careful from the moment of earthmoving to pre-operation.
Another great detail was the care of the team of workers. Because it did not have a qualified workforce in this region, it was necessary to perform several professional trainings for this team, which also opened opportunities to improve the local workforce.
We carried out a great movement of relationship with the neighborhood with the objective of working on the concept of care for the environment and the impact of the operation of the terminal.
Undoubtedly a rewarding experience for all those involved in this construction.
