Tank Repair & Restoration

Tank Repair – Client Needed an Elite Solution

When a Client has a unique problem, they require a unique solution!

For this major repair project, Elite was contracted to restore a failing tank crucial to the process operations of this northern Alberta SAGD site. Replace the deteriorating foundation, along with lower sections of the tank shell was Elite’s repair scope; working closely with the client and EPC, Elite was able to identify project efficiencies and eliminate unnecessary costs, aligning with the project objectives. Critical timelines were driving many of the project targets, therefore, Elite engaged with trusted sub-contractors to successfully design and execute this project ahead of schedule. Well planned, committed teamwork, permitted the complete replacement of the tank foundation, annular ring and floor plates while the tank remained in place.
