Tolent is currently on site undertaking an £11m civils work package as part of a new Propane Storage Facility. The Tolent scope of works is to deliver enabling works, heavy road construction, piled foundations and a large sand mound, which will cover the client’s 6 propane bullets.
This type of facility has previously been performed at only a few locations throughout the world, so upon completion it will be the first of its kind in the UK.
The propane bullets are an elongated cigar shape, 7.2m diameter, 61.2m long and delivered to site in one piece on multi wheeled SPMT’s. The encompassing flat topped sand mound has plan dimensions of 80m x 77m at the base, 56m x 47m at top and overall it is 10.3m high. The total volume of sand in the completed mound will be c.30,000m³.
The project was programmed to last for c.85 weeks and included the completion of the enabling and infrastructure works, including the access road, car park and services alterations.
