Blowdown Vessel, Croydon

Blowdown Vessel, Croydon

Client: Zotefoams Plc
Project: Blowdown Vessel

Brief Description:

Following previous completed works for our client Zotefoams, we were awarded the project of removing 1no. Blowdown Vessel

Scope of Works

  • KpH carefully planned out the safe method for the cutting and removal of the vessel, taking extra care as it was based on a busy working site within a live tank farm
  • A safe working area with signage was set up around the vessel and the access road was secured ready for the works
  • Fixed scaffolding was erected to allow the team to dismantle the vessel into manageable sections
  • Our skilled operatives opened up access into the top of the tank to allow for fume extraction
  • In a methodical manner, the KpH team used oxy propane cutting methods to complete the fragmenting of the tank
  • The biggest challenge on this project was that the tank was 35mm thick so it had to be cut into small manageable pieces, approx. 30cmx30cm
  • The team did an amazing job, not only cutting down and removing the waste in a short time but also carrying out the work on a live site
  • The area was jet washed down and remaining debris removed, ready for a new tank to be installed by the client
  • The experienced team carried out the dismantling and removal to a tight programme maintaining high standards of work and health and safety.
