In October 2017, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used to protect a bund slope at the Maasvlakte Oil Terminal (MOT) in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands.
The bund was constructed during the renovation of a 45-year-old jetty at the MOT site, one of the largest oil terminals in the world, with 39 crude storage tanks each 85m in diameter with a capacity of 114,000m3. The terminal is owned by five of the major oil refineries (BP, ExxonMobil, Shell, Total and Aramco) and Vopak.
The works on the jetty had required a year of preparation and the client, MOT, had allocated just 4 days to carry out the works on the slope. These time constraints, along with limited access, ruled out the use of many conventional concrete methods for the works. The works were carried out by ProTanks Contracting.
