Karbonsan Pressure Vessels strengthens its position in the engineered tank and standard tank manufacture business by expanding its facility in Orhangazi, Bursa, in Turkey.
The end result will be a 14,000 square-metre-plant that covers 70.000m2 land. The project is due for completion in late March 2015 and will deliver 14,000 square metres, which will double their current capacity in Turkey.
Karbonsan’s supply of equipment is currently expanding at a rate of approximately 30% per year and this steady development of company encouraged them to expand their capacity.
Once the expansion is completed, Karbonsan expects to use this new capacity to supply the emerging LNG markets with its range of cryogenic products and shorten the delivery times.
“Through our expanded capacity we will be able to improve our operations and increase our engineered tank volume up to 600m3 and availability in many corners of the world,” said Levend Akad, Karbonsan’s General Manager.
He continued, “Karbonsan is built on a technology platform of comprehensive specialised know how and the expanded capacity allows us access to new market segments, in which we have not yet been strongly represented. This also enables shorter delivery times.”
Karbonsan Pressure Vessels, Turkey facility manufactures stationary cryogenic tanks, transportable tanks, ISO tank containers and various type of tailor-made pressure vessels. 90% of company sales go to export markets.
The Turkish tank manufacturer, originally established in Istanbul, has celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. Vice Chairman, Turgay Karacalar, recalls the initial small beginnings of the company and charts the increase in business it is experiencing now.
