Tank Pit 7 at STANDIC

In the second quarter of 2015 STANDIC BV will take 43 new storage tanks in use at its storage and distribution terminal in Dordrecht. SPIE-Industry, a division of SPIE Netherlands, is responsible for the design and construction of the W, E and I installations of this project, which is also known as Tank Pit 7. Econosto supplied a package of Econ® pneumatically actuated ball valves for this project. The main requirements for assigning the order to Econosto included custom work, service, quality, delivery time and know-how.

Tank Pit 7

At its terminal in Dordrecht STANDIC already has 121 tanks from 156 m3 to 6,600 m3 for a total storage capacity of 194,500 m3, which is used for a range of flammable and non-flammable liquids. The current expansion is specifically designed to cater to the growing demand for storage capacity of biofuels and chemicals.

The new storage facility will have a total capacity of 36,000 m3: 20 storage tanks of 500 m³, 17 of 1,000 m³ and 6 of 1,500 m³. All tanks are insulated and are available with features such as heating, agitators and nitrogen blanketing - depending on the medium. The accompanying pipe network is fitted with piggable pipes. 


Various trump cards

"We had a few trump cards up our sleeve to ensure that we would be granted this wonderful offer," explained Richard van Biezen, senior sales engineer at Econosto. 


"Our Econ® package exceeded quality requirements and we were also able to deliver quickly, which was an absolute requirement for scheduling purposes. We also have the necessary know-how available when it comes to tank storage."

Decisive assembly service

The decisive factor, according to Van Biezen, was Econosto's extensive engineering service: "This order included Econ® stainless steel wafer type check valves and Econ® stainless steel safety valves. The most important part of the delivery was Econ® 2-piece ball valves with steel flanges and stainless steel flanges and Econ® stainless steel 3-piece ball valves, fitted with Econ® pneumatic actuators with solenoid valve and position indication. We put together and tested these AOVs in our Valve Automation Centre so that they could be mounted directly. This does not only save time - and money - but also provides assurance that the systems are immediately in optimum working condition."
