Custom Fabricated Fiberglass Tank for the Power Generation Industry

A customer in the power generation industry needed a flue gas desulfurization system built and installed for one of their power plants. Augusta Fiberglass was contracted to perform all of the required work, which included fiberglass fabrication as well as the installation and erection of the eight tanks. The tanks varied in size from 169,200 gallons with a 30′ O.D to 404,200 gallons with an O.D. of 42′. Fabrication was performed in our facility using our Magnum Venus vertical winder, which used a 30’diameter X 40′ mandrel, and our Nol-tec horizontal winder with a 42′ diameter X 41′ mandrel. The tanks were constructed of fiber reinforced plastic, with a resin gel-coating on the exterior, and where subject to hydrostatic and emissions testing.

All fabrication activity was recorded throughout fabrication and assembly, and individual turn-over packages were submitted for each tank.

On-site installation involved the use of a crane and riggers, which we supplied with full lift plans that included rigging and lifting drawings as well as operations and maintenance manual. We also provided the on-site labor that performed the tank joint assembly. For more information see the table below or contact us directly.
