Transneft and Giprotruboprovod received a patent for the invented vertical steel tank lifting and retaining technique (RF patent No. 2584713).
The innovative vertical steel tank lifting and retaining technique proposed by the specialists of Giprotruboprovod Denis Yeryomin and Anatoly Kuryshev reduces the time for the construction and/or repair of tanks. This technique allows a simultaneous dismantling of the old foundation, installation of concrete forms and reinforcement cage as well as concreting of the new foundation. The number of vertical posts and welds on the tank wall is reduced almost by half.
The invented vertical steel tank lifting and retaining technique improves the quality and safety of construction and assembly operations and reduces respective costs.
The results of the development will be used in the Transneft system during the construction and revamping of vertical steel tanks and are recommended for large-scale introduction in the commercial production.
