Seabridge Terminals is located on the west coast of India, with the Port of Kandla being one of the busiest ports in the country and the largest for chemicals and vegetable oil imports.
Seabridge Terminals consists of 31-fixed cone roof tanks with connections to five shared jetties owned and operated by the Port of Kandla. The area is known for its extremely corrosive conditions due to its coastal location, industrial belt and salt pans.
Due to severe corrosion failures, especially for pipes passing through culverts on site, the client wanted a fool proof system which would work even in the tough environmental conditions. After completing local research and development work using Denso products, the approval for a system utilising Denso Paste™, Densyl™ Tape and Densoclad 70HT™ was granted.
The system also needed to be compatible with the 3LPE main line coating as it was to be applied to the existing joints and specials.
