With the hydraulic columns recently developed by Hego, the 20 meter high tank at Vopak Vlaardingen was jacked. In the meantime, the third tank has been safely jacked with these new columns. With this system, sensitive savings were realized for Vopak, including a 700-ton crane, temporary foundation, considerable man-hours at height, and so on. In cooperation with Vopak, the step-by-step plan was carefully drawn up and another project with a lower risk factor was carried out in complete safety, including positive aspects regarding the environment.
