The foundation design and construction included a load transfer platform capable of properly transferring the steel weight, wind and seismic loads to the soil below.
USA, FL – Tampa Electric Co.
A 40-foot diameter x 57 feet high carbon steel tank was built under AWWA D100 standards as the tank stores demineralized water. It was fabricated and built for Tampa Electric in Mulberry, Florida, and consisted of a self-supporting roof and a crowned sloped bottom. All welding met the latest AWS standards at the time of construction.
Bahamas – Buckeye Bahamas Hub
Buckeye awarded TTI-FSS a project to furnish pipe and pipe fittings for 11 pipelines running from a jetty up to their facility. This work included two underground road crossings and one expansion loop for each of the 11 pipelines. Pipeline sizes were 30 inches, 24inches and 14 inches. ASME B31.3 standards were followed throughout the whole project.
Panama – Patsa
Seven steel pipelines running adjacent to the Pan-American Highway were to be relocated due to a highway expansion. This included breaking 3,600 feet of terrain to lay pipelines, temporarily divert a river flow and build two control valve rooms. Attaching the new pipelines to their existing system was performed by hot-tapping method because the facility cannot stop daily operations.
