Read Time: 2 mins

McDermott’s storage business, CB&I, was presented with two Field-Erected Tank of the Year awards by the Steel Tank Institute/Steel Plate Fabricators Association (STI/SPFA) during its annual meeting in New Orleans, LA.

The API 620 Low Pressure Liquid Storage Tank category was awarded to CB&I for the design and construction of a 1.2 million-gallon Egg-Shaped Digester and associated equipment for the City of Fremont in Fremont, NE. The award for the ASME Pressure Vessel Storage category recognized the replacement of a hot lime softener vessel with a net capacity of 183,700 gallons and design temperature for 300 degrees Fahrenheit at a refinery in Linden, NJ.

“Since 2012, CB&I has received a total of 28 awards in the field-erected tanks category with projects in six of the seven classifications,” said Cesar Canals, Senior Vice President of CB&I. “This not only demonstrates the breadth of solutions we provide our customers—with winning projects spanning API 620/650 tanks, ASME spheres, specialty storage and water storage—but is also a testament to the quality and performance you can expect from facilities designed and built by CB&I.”

STI/SPFA is a non-profit trade association whose member companies fabricate steel tanks, pipe and pressure vessels for use across various industries. The annual awards recognize steel construction projects and products of member companies that exemplify the steel tank industry.
