Tank Storage Magazine talks to engineering specialist Transtech Energy about the challenges involved with building Vopak Moda Houston’s bullet tanks.

As part of the Vopak Moda Houston project, EPC contractor Transtech Energy, which has over 30 years of experience in the design and construction of liquefied gas terminals and transloading facilities, was tasked with fabrication of the facility’s five pressurised 120,000 gallon bullet tanks. These tanks have a total storage capacity of 14,285 barrels for products such as propane or butane or other liquefied hydrocarbon gasses.
