In September 2016, CC HydroTM (CCH) GCCB was used to provide secondary containment to a berm face at an oil storage facility in west Wales operated by SemLogistics Ltd.
SemLogistics Milford Haven is one of the largest petroleum products storage facilities in the UK, accounting for nearly 25 percent of the UK’s independent multiproduct storage. Located on the Milford Haven waterway on the west coast of Wales, the facility serves ships transporting in and out of international locations. The facility plays a key part in the region’s economy, employing more than 60 people from the local area. The premises were built in the 1960s and are located adjacent to a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
There are 52 tanks of various sizes within the site that are used to store different petrochemical products: gasoline, gasoline blendstocks, naphtha, jet fuel, gas oil and diesel, as well as crude oil. Each tank sits within a bunded areaformed with granular fill during the original construction of the site. As part of ongoing improvements, SEM embarked on a programme to install secondary containment around two of the site’s most critical storage tanks.
Mott MacDonald specified CC Hydro for the installation, and produced the designs for the project, while Jones Brothers (Henllan) Ltd. carried out the works.
