Two duplex stainless steel storage tanks for Bakelite

Bakelite Synthetics is a manufacturer of innovative synthetic materials, including the production of formaldehyde. Amongst other things, this substance is used in the production of synthetic resins. Due to an expansion in production capacity, a need for additional storage capacity was required. To this end, Bakelite Synthetics contacted Gpi for the construction of two new duplex stainless steel storage tanks.
Ed Hertogh, Global MI and Formaldehyde Optimization Leader at Bakelite Synthetics, provides support to a number of the company’s production sites, in particular those producing and storing formaldehyde. The tanks were constructed at Gpi’s production site in Groot-Ammers and transported by water to Botlek in the port of Rotterdam.
