Ferguson supplies DNV 2.7-1 offshore

Ferguson, one of the suppliers of offshore DNV 2.7-1 / EN12079 certified containers, tanks, refrigeration modules, accommodation and workspace modules, supplies stainless steel offshore tote tanks from their South East Asian bases in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam.

The 4000 litre tank is used to store and transport most chemicals used in oil and gas production as its construction makes it more able to withstand the rigours of offshore work and has a lower transport cost per litre than an IBC. The tanks are part of Ferguson’s offshore DNV 2.7-1 chemical tank range, introduced in response to client demand.

The DNV 2.7-1 offshore tank can withstand both fire and substantial impacts due to its design and its 316 stainless steel construction weathers well in the tropical climate of the region.

Simon de Koning, General Manager, Singapore welcomed the tanks “The tote tanks are a very cost efficient way to move cargo. When a 1000 litre IBC is lifted as loose cargo, it takes four lifts to get 4000 litres of product on board the vessel, and thereafter onto the offshore installation, while it only takes one lift when using the 4000 litre tank. Additionally, the 4000 litre tank has a lesser footprint than four IBCs.”
