There was a need for plant and process design in order to store coal tar pitch. It had to be taken into consideration as part of the design process that coal tar pitch always has to be kept at a temperature of over 180 °C in order for it to remain fluid.


Enmac designed the new tanks, pipelines and train loading areas in accordance with the requirements for demanding Nordic port conditions.


The storage and loading of coal tar pitch is possible while keeping the substance fluid, all year round. The design process enhanced the level of ergonomics for those working with coal tar pitch. It also improved the safety of the area and made it easier to carry out future repairs and extensions to the tanks and pipelines.
