Principles and Case Histories of Deep Vibro Techniques

An independent oil storage terminal (Fig. 11.10) was constructed on Singapore’s Jurong Island. The island is a human-made, formed by reclamation over several small islands. At the completion of the terminal, it was one of the world’s largest and Asia’s biggest independent oil storage facility. It initially consisted of 73 tanks with diameters ranging from 13.6–78.6 m and height from 15–22.3 m. A total of 34 tanks were built with floating roofs, while the remainder were built with fixed roofs. After about five years of operation, the facility was expanded with an additional tank farm consisting of 5 tanks with diameter of 18–25 m and height of 31.3 m.
