Drydocks World and Maritime World has received the "Innovative solution" Award at the distribution of "International Business Excellence Awards" ceremony, for constructing subsea oil storage tank"Solan".
Drydocks World began working on subsea oil storage tank "Solan" in 2013 and delivered the project in 2014. Solan accommodates more than 400,000 barrels of oil under the sea. The idea behind the construction of this huge tank was to reduce the extended pipelines under the sea to transfer oil, and therefore reducing the negative impact on the environment to a large extent, with the oil transferred directly from the tank to the oil tanker.
In cooperation with the client Premier Oil,Drydocks World constructed the largest and deepest subsea oil storage tank comprised of a 45m x 45m x 25m structural tank weighing approximately10,150 tonnes in eight mega blocks, connected with pile sleeves and mud mats.
