Dismantlement of Steel Tank

Formosa Plastics
Baton Rouge, LA

SEMS was contracted to dismantle 10 carbon steel tanks. When the project was completed more than 1.5 million pounds of steel were removed. This duration of this project was seven weeks and it was successfully completed without accidents or safety issues.

Work performed:

  • Dismantlement of steel tanks using propane torches and air
    • Using a manlift, the roof was cut so it would fall inside the tank
    • Sides of the tank were cut and dropped inside the tank
    • Plate was folded and readied for the scrap containers
