Within the company's expansion to storage, conduction and production of renewable energy, the company seeks to examine the existence of various types of energy production solutions that will use bund walls, tanks' shells and roofs (containing fuels and distillates) for placing solar panels or other technological solutions for the production of renewable energy.
A bund wall is a perimeter compound located around a fuel tank to prevent the spread of fuel in case of a leak from the tank. The bund wall storage volume is about 110% of the tank volume. The bund walls are usually built of earthen embankments and in some cases concrete walls. The bund walls area is a wide area designed for safety, operational, engineering usage and environmental protection purposes.
The tanks' roofs and shells have a large surface area, and as mentioned, they contain fuels, therefore in all the mentioned facilities' use, there are strict safety, operational and engineering limitations.
The proposed solution will have to comply with regulatory requirements, guidelines and relevant standards, which will be provided later by the National Fire Authority and the Ministry of Environmental Protection. At this time, regulatory approvals are not required.
The solution should meet explosion-proof standards, maintain fire-fighting capability, and engineering capabilities related to infrastructure and facility maintenance.
It is hereby clarified that the binding version of the challenge is the one published in the guidelines. In any case of a conflict or discrepancy between the website version and the guidelines documents, the guidelines documents will prevail.
