TRL successfully future-proofs tanks at remote mine site

The Tanami Gold Mine is situated in a remote location about 560km northwest of Alice Springs. Newmont engaged TRL to future proof two 1.5 million-litre aboveground diesel tanks at the mine site fuel farm.

We used our unique Intanka® technology to safely construct a 9mm double wall FRP lining inside the tanks with a vacuum monitoring system. The FRP lining provided full corrosion protection, and guaranteed the tanks against any future leakage. With Intanka®, disruption to the site was kept to an absolute minimum, saving the operator from costly shut-downs.

At the end of the project, Newmont congratulated TRL on our high level of professionalism, our safety systems and overall performance, and the we delivered fully on all aspects of our work.
