Cryogenic Storage Tanks, Italy
The tanks owned by Polimeri Europa S.P.A are located in one of Italy’s highest seismic regions. In order to improve the safety level of the tanks, the owner, after considering all of the available seismic upgrade solutions, decided to use Friction PendulumTM seismic isolation because it was the only solution that satisfied all of the requirements to make the tanks completely safe for the design level earthquake. Moreover, Friction PendulumTM bearings resulted in large construction cost savings compared to the conventional retrofit scheme, which was not only difficult to execute but also did not provide the desired level of performance during an earthquake.
