Buncefield Re-development (Petrochem)Posted on May 19, 2017
Buncefield oil depot is operated by Hertfordshire Oil Storage Ltd (HOSL) and is located north of London. In December 2005 there was a series of explosions on the site which caused significant damage to the infrastructure including storage tanks and pipelines. A full reconstruction project followed which involved the construction of 8 tanks totalling some 65,000m3 of fuel storage and all associated pumping terminal and control facilities. AMEC were appointed as main works contractor and will re-instate Buncefield Terminal to its strategic role of supplying aviation fuel to Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
Pipeline Protection supplied the anti-corrosion coatings through Conline Coatings in Rotterdam. The pipes were delivered to a fabrication company in London prior to delivery to site.
