Additional Nitrogen Tank and Pad

The proposed project

Pacific Coast Terminals Ltd. are proposing to install an additional nitrogen tank adjacent to the existing nitrogen tank, in the tank farm rail unloading area. The new storage tank would be approximately 3 metres in diameter, and approximately 11 metres in height and would hold approximately 49,210 litres of liquid nitrogen. A concrete pad, approximately 25 square metres and 0.7 metres deep would be installed to support the tank. The new pad would be dowelled into the existing tank pad and supported by 4 standard pipe piles, installed at a 22 degree offset angle from vertical to a depth of 18 metres below grade. The new tank would then be anchor bolted into the concrete pad to secure it, connected to the existing nitrogen system and have protective bollards installed around it. The tank would act as extra storage capacity for the rail unloading process.
