Penspen, a leading global provider of engineering and project management services to the energy industry, has secured a detailed engineering project award from Target Engineering Construction Company, a leading engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
As per the deal, Penspen will be providing engineering works for the existing T-1517, 1518 and 1519 crude oil tanks in the Jebel Dhanna Crude Receiving facility.
This latest project is in addition to the ongoing detailed engineering contract awarded to Penspen by Target Engineering for the facility in Jebel Dhannna last year.
The scope of engineering support services Penspen will provide includes a site survey, insulation selection, tank dome roof design and a tank shell adequacy check due to the additional loading that will be taking place, said the statement from Penspen.
Checks for both tank foundation adequacy and tank shell and foundation/anchor bolt adequacy for wind and seismic activity will also be undertaken.
Penspen will develop structural engineering drawings with a bill of quantities (BOQ), as well as preparation tank modification drawings related to insulation cleats, dome roof support cleats and platform modifications as part of the remit.
On the new contract, Executive VP (Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific) Neale Carter said: "To be awarded further work in conjunction with the existing contract we have with Target Engineering is excellent and a great example of Penspen’s reputation within the Middle East market."
"We are confident that our expert services will be delivered seamlessly and build upon the excellent relationship between Penspen and Target Engineering," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
