CTS continues to flourish in Saudi Arabia

1 2CTS, which specialises in products used for the storage and transfer of fluids, is experiencing a strong demand for its products in Saudi Arabia

A major part of the company’s portfolio consists of aluminium geodesic domes, aluminium internal floating roofs, floating suction lines, tank seals (for both internal and external floating roof tanks), tank drain systems, and industrial supplies such as hose systems, dry break couplers, emergency release systems vapour bladders etc.

CTS has received a world record-breaking dome order from both NWC & SWCC, Saudi Arabia, for the supply of 110 m and 107 m domes for the cities of Riyadh, Khobar, Makkah and Jeddah region. The order is also the largest ever dome contract in terms of sq m covered, representing a projected covered area in excess of 333,000 sq m.

The domes are scheduled to be installed in the course of 2019 and 2020. CTS will not only supply the materials but will also support the project by mobilising experienced supervisors and crew with all the specialised tools required.

CTS has also been awarded a contract for supplying tank seals and Drain master drain systems for 12 tanks at Aramco Yanbu South Terminal Rehabilitation Project. This involves supplying seals for 10 tanks with a diameter of 110.8 m, and two tanks with a diameter of 15.24 m.

Additionally, CTS has been awarded many projects by Saudi Aramco for different bulk plants. These have included the supply of primary and secondary seals for a 125.57m diameter tank at Yanbu Crude Oil Terminal (YCOT) one of the largest tank terminals worldwide.

The terminal has 11 floating roof storage tanks – each able to hold one million barrels – plus a 1.5mn bbl tank, the largest diameter tank in Saudi Arabia, which was added in the 1992 capacity upgrade. The total storage capacity of the crude oil tank farm is 12.5mn bbl. CTS was selected to supply and design the primary and secondary seal systems as well as maintenance spare parts with seal fabric for four of Aramco’s bulk plants (Juaimah Terminal, Ras Tanura, Abha & Ain Dar).

CTS has been selected as vendor for the supply of three aluminium honeycomb full contact internal floating roofs (IFR) for Ras Tanura Integrated Project (SOLUTION PE) for Sadara Chemical Company, a joint venture of Saudi Aramco and the Dow Chemical Company. The project involves the procurement and construction of a polyethylene and specialty elastomers package in Al-Jubail Industrial City II, in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia, where Sadara is constructing a world-scale chemical complex.

For the last four years, CTS has been designated by Saudi Aramco as the supplier of choice for designing, manufacturing and installing gauge pole covers on Aramco tanks, in recognition of the company’s ability to provide a tailor-made design and installation service. CTS also supplied Saudi Aramco with 23 covers for single pole and multiple gauge pole tanks at the Yanbu Refinery. As part of the contract, CTS has also provided support for Aramco in installing the system.

In recognition of CTS’s continuous support, efforts and commitment to Saudi Aramco, CTS was given a plaque of appreciation for the second time, during Saudi Aramco Technology Day at Yanbu Refinery Area.
