NBK Application - Tank Farms for Electricity Generation

Tank farms are oil depot storage facilities. Our customer was a small island municipality of about 3 square miles and 2,000 residents. The island facility generates its own electricity with fuel that is delivered periodically by ship. The heavy diesel is then deposited in 11 vented tanks that are 8-16 feet tall. Because the tanks are not directly connected to any main pipeline, it was important for them to be able to confirm tank quantities visually as well as electronically.

KOBOLD engineers carefully reviewed the additional application needs with the customer and the NBK was recommended as a suitable solution for their needs.
