The Arandis Power Plant Tank Farm consists of 45,400 m3 Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) Storage and 52,600 m3 White Products Storage which is designed to provide an independent bulk liquid storage and handling services.
The objective of the project was to receive, store and supply HFO to the Arandis Power Plant in Walvis Bay. The Arandis Power Plant is developed as an Independent Power Producer to sell electricity to the national utility, NamPower. Fuel supply and logistics are the critical factors in determining the success of the Arandis Power Project. The quantities of fuel required for the Power plant are significant and do not exist in Namibia. The required HFO will be shipped via large ship tankers to the Port of Walvis Bay Namibia.
The project was expected to be delivered in two phases; Phase 1 to include 45,400 m3 storage facilities catering for HFO and Phase 2 anticipated to be 52,600 m3 storage facility for White Products. Phase 1 terminal will be connected to the New Port Fuel Jetty in the Port of Walvis Bay via an approximate 4 km pipeline.
