LNG liquid gas reservoirs Cameron, United States of America

LNG liquid gas reservoirs, Cameron, USA - In the US state of Louisiana, three enormous liquid gas tanks were simultaneously realized using PERI know-how. Each of the structures has an 80 m diameter and a wall height of 44 m.
LNG liquid gas reservoirs, Cameron, USA - In concreting cycle heights of 4.65 m, the customized pre-assembled VARIO GT 24 girder wall formwork and CB climbing scaffold system were moved by crane in the form of climbing units.
LNG liquid gas reservoirs, Cameron, USA - The PERI formwork solution took into consideration the external inclination in the bottom third of the wall as well as wall thickness offsets in the area of the buttresses.

Ügyfél előnyök

  • saving of expensive tie points (only two tie layers at 4.65 m concreting height)
  • moving of VARIO and CB as climbing unit in one crane lift
  • climbing in 2-week cycle
  • smooth and safe striking and moving
  • punctual completion

Striking and moving worked easily and safely. It only took us 13 days for one concreting section with the PERI climbing formwork solutions, and thus we are able to adhere to our schedule.

PERI megoldások

  • delivery of 468 completely pre-assembled, rounded-out VARIO panels, 3.20 m wide and 4.90 m high
  • 80 climbing units for each reservoir, supported by CB 240 climbing platforms
