A break in the monsoon rain has allowed Kvaerner Construction to complete the world's largest liquid natural gas tanks near Mumbai (Bombay) in India. The final 770t steel gas tank roof was lifted 70m into position during a six hour dry spell last weekend.
Kvaerner had to build the tanks - part of a £174M turnkey project for the Dahbol power company - through the monsoon season, when rain can average 370mm per day. The completed tanks measure 80m across, making each one larger than the Albert Hall. Now all three are sealed, internal works can proceed unaffected by the weather.
