Containment dikes are one of the most important systems that petroleum distributors utilize to prevent environmental disasters. Besides meeting state and federal requirements, these systems need to account for future growth, site topography and local conditions that can impact performance.
Superior Engineering (S/E) was recently hired to conduct a complete analysis of an expansive Midwest tank farm. Working within the client’s safety protocols, 3D scans and walkdowns of all applicable areas were conducted to capture the most precise measurements possible.
With this data, S/E was able to provide a comprehensive study that included topography, capacities and resulting storage volumes. Calculations were used to verify compliance with relevant codes and regulations along with remediation drawings stamped and sealed by one of our professional engineers.
S/E takes great pride in performing thorough and accurate studies that can help ensure the safety of employees and protect the environment.
