Teck Trail - Acid Thickener Tanks


Teck Trail – Acid Thickener Tanks

Job # 1474 – 1508         Weight  244,000 lbs

Unifab was awarded two separate projects to design, fabricate, and deliver two (2) 80’ diameter x 15’ high stainless steel tanks to the Teck site at Trail BC.

PB210012-960x720Teck was replacing old concrete tanks that had lived out their useful service life.  Unifab worked with Teck’s EPCM partner AMEC on this project.  Combining consideration of construction constraints and application of the API 650 tank design and fabrication standards, Unifab developed the tank design and construction method.  One in the fall of 2011 and one in the fall of 2012, the new tanks were installed within existing process equipment and structure, complete with access walkways, process tie-ins, and integrated weirs.
