Marine Liquid Docks – A Tier 1 Family of Assets

  • The liquid Dock is, without question, a tier 1 asset to a Marine Terminal, in terms of productivity, operability, environmental, safety and regulatory compliance.
  • A focus on the marine aspect of the facility is mission critical to the facility.
  • Will the failure in this asset result in immediate impact to, or shutdown of, multiple operations or systems
  • This failure will prevent capacity assurance due to the operational, environmental, or regulatory requirements.
  • Tier 1 assets typically have no redundancy and issues related to tier 1 assets must be addressed immediately in an emergency.
