Exxon Mobil Oil Storage Tank
This floating crude-oil storage tank is located in an area called Fawley, one of Esso’s biggest refineries in the United Kingdom, which is actually south of Southampton on the south coast of England. On the pictures you can see the roof of an floating crude-oil storage tank project of Exxon Mobil, the photos show the true scale of the project.
The application of ZINGA was done in August of 2007, the oil storage tank has been blasted with a profile average of 75 µm. The application team really loved working with ZINGA after using epoxies for years, as they did not have the worries about dragging blast-hoses across semi-cured coatings or applying an epoxy in the morning and letting it cure for a few hours and then continuing to blast (with grit flying everywhere) and with the first-stage epoxy ending up as an unplanned non-skid surface!
The contracting team could already walk on the ZINGA after only one hour, dragging their hoses etc and blasting adjacent to where the first-stage zinc layer stops with no adverse effects whatsoever.
