Project Details & RCI Activities:
Project Date: December 2006
Location: Galeota Point, Trinidad
RCI conducted a seismic walk-through assessment of bpTT’s Galeota and Beachfield facilities in the act of assessing the seismic preparedness of the terminals. The walk-through review emphasizes the primary seismic load resisting elements, and the potential areas of weakness due to design, construction, or modification practices, and due to corrosion. A special emphasis was placed on details that may have been designed without consideration of seismic loads. Additionally, RCI provided a structural walk-through assessing the conditions of primary and secondary steel work, concrete structural components and safety critical components with regards to personnel, piping, equipment, and environmental safety.
Scope of Work:
- Inspect and assess both the Galeota and Beachfield Facilities.
- Submit inspection reports and presentations for further review.
- Submit recommendations and mitigations based on a priority scheme and categorize according to safety or operational concerns.
