Roof of liquid ammonia storage tank successfully installed!

Today the roof of the liquid ammonia storage tank for Agropolychim in Bulgaria was installed succesfully.

The roof was built next to the tank. Special about the roof is that we didn’t only hoist the roof structure but also the suspended deck at the same time. This resulted in a total weight of 80 tons that needed to be lifted into the air.

For the installation a Demag CC1800 tracket crane was mobilized from neighboring country Romania. The crane was equipped with a mast of 72m and a super elevator of 160 tons.  The hoisting operation and the installation of the roof ran smoothly. Next, the roof was finished and the roof plates were attached.
