A major terminal in Malaysia has selected RISKWISE for Tanks TM to optimise its tank inspection and maintenance planning. Working through ABS Consulting (Singapore), TWI provided on-the-job training to the operator during the software implementation.
The terminal started its operations in January of 2000 and provides storage and handling services for local petrochemical plants. The facility has a total of 390,000 cubic metres of storage capacity in 40 custom-built tanks and spheres. There are normal atmospheric tanks with and without nitrogen blanketing, cryogenic tanks and heated tanks. Transfers to and from customers are by pipelines, tank trucks and berths, which were included in the scope of the RBI project along with other general pressure equipment such as heat exchangers.
RISKWISE for Tanks TM is an RBI analysis software system that has been specifically designed to address the unique risk factors associated with storage tanks. The software was vetted by the Malaysian safety regulating authority DOSH, prior to commencing the RBI project. It is compliant with API RP580 and includes the key elements of the draft tank assessment procedures in API BRD 581. The RBI analysis procedure in RISKWISE for Tanks TM was also designed to comply with the new EEMUA (Engineering Equipment and Materials Users Association) Publication 159, which is the only published RBI assessment procedure for API-designed tanks.
