We work with our clients and inspectors to ensure all above ground storage tank repairs meet API653-code standards. Whether we’re replacing floors and roofs, or modifying shell courses, we’ll keep your project up to code.
As industry experts in design and drafting, we’ll review your engineered drawings to identify design conflicts or discrepancies. Based on your drawings, we’ll advise on the safest, most efficient route for your high-quality project. If you need engineers, no problem—we do that too.
We believe expert project management is the key to a safe and successful project. We’re pleased to provide general contracting and construction management services on any project—from project procurement, scheduling and budget tracking, to quality control and key performance indicators.
When you need tradespeople and skilled labour, we provide high-quality manpower such as:
We’re well-equipped to handle structural and pipe fabrication at our shop fabrication facility located west of Edmonton.
Unsurpassed project management, clear communication, and leading quality control delivers an experience you won’t find with anyone else. We hold the highest expectations in the industry—that’s just our everyday norm.
Our culture of Standard Excellence means we have the right people, process, and safety measures to support you and your team. The people at Prolium are committed to transparent communication and pushing each other to do better, no matter the job at hand. We train and engage our team to be transparent, proactive, safer, and to uphold a higher standard of communication while producing higher quality reports.
The processes at Prolium are led by transparency. Every dollar and minute is accounted for, so you know exactly what you’re getting and when. We don’t believe in projects going over schedule or over budget. Everything is tracked in real-time (including work accomplished and budget spent), for true accuracy and predictability. It’s about saving our clients time, stress, and money.
We’re experts at repairing and maintaining all types of above ground storage tanks across Canada, ranging in size from 12’ foot in diameter up to 210’ foot. To highlight our range of expertise, here are a few:
Once again, Prolium expertly handled all design, engineering and execution on this 210-foot Dilbit tank project. Following an inspection, we blinded and de-blinded the tank. After replacing the foam piping system, we replaced the concrete ring wall, lift and floor. Finally we completed the project by replacing all staircases and platforms.
We lifted the tank with a hydraulic jacking system to remove and install a new concrete ring wall and replace the floor sheets.
Prolium has the experience and expertise to successfully complete any above ground storage tank project—from design and inspection to engineering and execution. On this 180-foot Dilbit tank, we used a water jet to cut and re-install two door sheets before removing up to 10 feet of sludge. We replaced the the foam piping system, shell, and roof insulation before demolishing and replacing the tank roof and internal roof structure.
In addition to replacing all staircases and platforms, we replaced the roof nozzles, components and PVRs. Finally, we replaced the level, temperature transmitters and all associated electrical components. Prolium polished off the successful project by replacing various pipes and installing an asphalt tank apron.
After removing one inch of sludge, Prolium began this project with a thorough inspection. We were responsible for all project components including design, engineering and execution. We replaced the bottom shell course, which included all nozzles and man-ways. From there, we replaced the tank bottom and foundation before installing internal epoxy coating to the floor and three inches up the shell. Once we removed and replaced the insulation to the roof and shell, we completed various piping upgrades and installed an asphalt tank apron.
The Prolium Project's scope entailed demolishing and installing new tank roofing, rafters, columns, and a ring. Per current standards for tank construction, we replaced all materials in kind while ensuring they met client requirements. This process included supplying labour, materials, equipment fabrication, nondestructive evaluation (NDE), and final site installation. We also built an additional 24-access hatch to provide easy access from inside the plant to the roof area and a manway door along one side of the building for both areas.
The 30-foot diameter fixed cone roof storage tank was built over 20 years ago. The tank sits inside a gravel berm and rests on a concrete ring wall. Due to the interaction of glycol water and steel above the waterline, corrosive rusting has caused excessive corrosion on the top shell course and roof structure.
The work completed included installing a roof for the top of our tank and securing the outer shell with scaffolding for support. For fabrication, our new roofing materials were placed near other previously installed roofs. This process allowed the new structure to be manufactured easily at ground level using smaller equipment. A larger crane was then used to remove the old materials and install the new materials properly and safely.
Our safety rating is right where we expect it—zero incidents. Aside from keeping our industry’s greatest assets safe, you save major costs by avoiding potential risks. Through our Prolium Safety Management Program (PSMP), we follow a specific, rigorous protocol that achieves results:
At Prolium, we create greater trust with our clients because we have actionable tools that boost transparency and safety. Our dedicated team, processes, and strict safety standards typically achieve 20% cost savings for our clients.
