RECOPE has begun construction of a $2.3m third storage tank at the Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia in response to growing demand for aviation fuels.
The company responsible for the construction the new tank is the consortium Tecnitanques-Cónico (the first of Colombian origin, the second Costa Rican). The work is expected to be completed by mid-2019.
The scope of the project consists of the construction of an 800 cbm tank with connections to tank loading systems, refuelling and transfer between tanks, as well as a fire protection system of both cooling water and foam. It complies with all the design standards established by RECOPE.
The new tank will have dimensions similar to the two existing tanks, which were built as part of the campus, in 2013, and will comply with the normed separations with respect to the existing facilities that surround them, with a maximum use of the dike area.
Currently, the RECOPE campus in this air terminal has two storage tanks Jet A-1 of 795 cbm (5,000 barrels) each (T901 and T902).
