The Strategic Alliance Agreement between Oiltanking and Daya Bay Government presents another milestone in the successful development of the Daya Bay Petrochemical Industrial Park. The signing of the agreement follows the successful relocation of Oiltanking’s tanks within the park to allow optimized utilization of the Daya Bay land plot, in accordance with the government’s master plan for the Daya Bay Petrochemical Industrial Park. Oiltanking relocated 7 tanks in Daya Bay with a capacity of 33,000 cbm storing predominantly petrochemicals. With Oiltanking‘s high commitment, teamwork and operational excellence as well as the support of the government, the relocation project was completed in a record time of 8 months, well ahead of target schedule while achieving the highest, “Target Zero” safety performance.
