What we did:

DylanBelgië was awarded with the OPTARA project for Total Antwerp.
The total ordered amount is exceeding € 7 Milj.

DylanGroup supplied all the CS, AS and SS butt weld- and forged fittings. Also the welded carbon steel pipes, part of the seamless pipes and all the special alloy (Alloy 825) piping.

Every supplied item, throughout the project, was subject to inspection. We organized and coordinated the inspections together with the Tecnicas Reunidas inspectors at the mills and also in our warehouse in Antwerp.

During the last year a dedicated commercial team of 9 people were working on the Optara project.  We are finalizing the last orders and taking care of the enormous amount of  documentation required by the project.

The prefabrication of the high-tech modules was done in Tarragona.  In total 32 modules were built in Spain. With a weight up to 1250 tons per module, this sea transport was one of the most gigantesque in the history of the port of Antwerp.

The transport of the modules from the port to the Total site in Antwerp was the heaviest on Antwerp roads ever. The modules were transported at a speed of 3 km/hour.
