Foundation tank design and plateau execution – LNG Krk
The construction of a floating terminal for the reception and storage of liquefied natural gas is planned in the Omišalj municipality on the Island of Krk. The terminal has a geopolitical and strategic aspect as it plays a part in the strengthening of the European energy market and increasing the security of gas supply in the countries of the European Union as well as the countries of Central and Southeast Europe. This is a project of strategic importance for the European Union and the Republic of Croatia.
As part of the reception terminal for liquefied natural gas project on the Island of Krk we have made a detailed design of the plateau in the area of the pier and the foundation design for the fire water tanks. Planned works for the plateau execution include arranging the soil foundation and filling the terrain.
A foundation system consisting of a reinforced concrete head ring and 12 reinforced concrete drilled piles with a diameter of D = 800.0 mm is prepared for the tank foundation. The piles will be reinforced with reinforcement baskets pre-stacked in full length. After the construction of the reinforced concrete piles, the construction of the reinforced concrete capping beam will begin.
