120m³ Holding Tank Rental Supports Forties Shutdown

120m3 holding tank 2

Hiretech Limited mobilised a 120m³ holding tank to Cruden Bay in Aberdeenshire to assist with preparatory works for the Forties Pipeline shutdown project.

Additional rental supply scope subsequently called off included air compressors, pumps, hoses and cross over connections.

The three-week shutdown of the Forties Pipeline System (FPS) allows for essential maintenance work and upgrades across the entire system. FPS is one of the UK’s most important oil pipelines and is responsible for transporting around 40% of the UK’s oil and gas onshore from 80 assets in the North Sea, many of which use the shutdown period to carry out their own maintenance works.
