DEMOLITION Projects | Storage tanks
DDM handled a very unusual job in the port of Rotterdam: moving large storage tanks.
The partial demolition and relocation of large storage tanks came with a significant risk: chemical pollution. For safety’s sake, DDM decided to use machinery to cut up and scrap the entire terminal. To do that, the pipelines and instrumentation were first removed, after which demolition excavators also cut up the smaller tanks and other items.
Two stainless steel tanks remained intact: DDM placed them on trailers for transport to their new destination. In the meantime, the demolition excavators made short work of the other silos, even though they were up to 22 metres tall.
