Gpi Tanks engineered and manufactured four stainless steel tanks for a major Circular Steam Project. With this project our customer invests in an innovative technology to convert water-based waste into energy.
KIWA BRL-K756/03 tanks
Since 2008, many chemical storage installations in the Netherlands must legally comply with the BRL-K903/08 standard. In these installations, vertical steel tanks of up to 150,000 m3 are required to comply with the BRL-K756-3 directive.
This directive specifies a very specific tank design, which includes the following conditions:
- The bottoms of the tank must be rounded.
- The underside must be a klöpper or korbbogen head*
- The upper side must have a manhole
- The tank must have a second manhole in the hull*
- Double-walled tanks must have a leak-detection system
The entire specification can be read here on KIWA’s website.
Under certain conditions, and only if this has been discussed with KIWA, some conditions may be deviated from as long as this does not pose a threat for safety and the environment.
Gpi is certified by KIWA in order to be able to design tanks according to customer specifications that comply with the relevant standards. Safety is an important priority here. In consultation with the client, our qualified engineers design the custom-made tanks according to the KIWA BRL-K756/3 directives.

Gpi has constructed an on-site tank for USG Geleen with a capacity of no less than 7300m3. The tank has been designed to EN 14015, the European norm for flat-bottomed tanks.
Gpi has build a 3995m3 demiwatertank for its customer, Dow Chemicals, on site. The tank is designed and build according to API650 guidelines.
The client requested three storage tanks that had to comply with the KIWA BRL-K756 directive. The three storage tanks have a capacity of 45,000 litres each, and are to be used for the storage of formic acid, lactic acid and Sal CURB. Sal CURB is a mixture of fluid formaldehyde and organic acids.
