In late 2009 and early 2010 Byggwik Equipamentos Ltda was formed. By June, we were on site In Aracruz, Brazil. We had to jack 3 new large Light Hydrocarbon storage tanks. The tanks had unique (and very heavy) self-supporting roofs made of 25mm thick plate, which had to be made on a jig and then transferred to each tank section by section. We started with the centre one in May and by September they were completed.

In November 2010 we carried out the first tank refurbishment. In 2011 we are currently busy, working on agitator tanks in Northern Brazil and jacking tanks at the new Petrobrás refinery – RNEST, also developing new techniques to suit local requirements at this site (North East Brazil). This entails lifting the shell with a hook arrangement (named “Bygghook”) rather than our standard method.
