BDI-BioEnergy International GmbH, which builds biodiesel production plants worldwide, has been commissioned by Cargill Ghent to build the process installation for the Midas Project.

The Midas Project is a third-generation biodiesel and biochemicals plant that will use complex waste oils as raw materials and process them into fuel.

Commenting on the news, Engicon nv (Geldof) said it had also been commissioned to take part. It said: “For this project, we have been asked to build 30 storage tanks!”

These 30 storage tanks, of which 13 are carbon steel and 17 are stainless steel, vary in diameter from 3.3 m to 15.2 m and in height from 4.5 m to 20 m.

The five largest tanks are located at the Cargill site, and the other tanks will be built off-site. The insulation of the tanks is also part of Geldof’s assignment.

It added: “It is a very beautiful and challenging project with a short schedule. We will start building on site in April 2021 and will be ready by the end of September 2021.”
