  • Conversion of existing 2,500 L waste tank into product recovery tank
  • A new product recovery sampling station including air diaphragm pumps, a closed circuit sampler and a new shelter for this equipment
  • New bulk air eliminators at the offloading bays

  • A new vapour diversion system at each dispensing bay
  • A new safety shower between the dispensing bays
  • Tank level measurement and venting upgrades
  • New valves, instruments, and equipment
  • New and modified piping for the new equipment
