Sichang Thong Bulk Liquids Terminal
Koh Sichang, Thailand
A new marine terminal and tank farm was developed on Sichang Island used for transferring petroleum products from large vessels to feeder vessels which then carry the product to shallow water ports throughout Thailand.

The facility consisted of four berths for vessels ranging in size from 1,000dwt to 100,000dwt, a 600m long approach carrying the product pipelines, a fire pump platform, a small craft landing, and a Ro-Ro barge berth.

The use of long span trusses of up to 60m for the approach along with precast concrete for the dolphins, the loading platform, and the approach supports ensured the provision of an economical design that provided savings to the contractor due to the ease of construction. The bulk earthworks component of the project included the design of an access road connecting the marine terminal to the tank farm and the design of the tank farm foundations.

SMC’s work on this design and construct project was carried out for a major Australian civil engineering contractor. Preliminary design was prepared by Maunsell in Australia with the team then relocating to Thailand and joining with SMC to carry out detailed design.
