SPEC provided support for the modification of terminal piping to allow for an existing regular gasoline tank to be used as an ethanol swing tank during a tank inspection at a refined products distribution terminal. SPEC designed new pipe spools and isolation valves to allow for unloading from, and loading to, the load rack at the new swing tank, field measurements of existing piping for drafting, stress analysis for new pipe spools, and creation of project record drawings. SPEC’s design allowed for the use of an existing tank for ethanol storage in time for the terminal to meet the deadline for the existing ethanol tank inspection.
