Source: Petroplex

The Dutch based Global construction company Verwater Group has signed the construction agreement with Petroplex International LLC for the construction of a 10 Million barrels multipurpose Oil terminal in St. James Parish, Louisiana.

Verwater will use the latest innovative construction methods. This revolutionary technique is introduced for the first time in the United States of America. Compared with the conventional construction techniques, Verwater guarantees that all the storage tanks will stay 100% horizontal on the soft soil of the Mississippi shores. Regarding the maintenance this new technique is much more cheaper and the economical lifetime of a storage tank will be increased.

All the tanks will be hurricane proof. The first building phase contains 4 Million barrels.

Petroplex International LLC managing partner, Larry Sciacchetano, is very happy that he and Paul Verwater can introduce a new innovative standard of the construction of liquid bulk storage tanks in the United States of America.
