Rectification of code 1 and 2 defects from operational fuel bulk storage depot.

Our team undertook an installation project for a bottom loading system which didn’t meet the correct code of practices and zoning of hazardous areas zone 1 and 2. From this, we repositioned the bottom loading skid control panel that was adjacent to fuel storage tank to safe area location newly formed electrical switch room.
