DOPA® 6 Lite application in Germany

The Scope of the Project

DRK32 as an affiliated company of the Wolftank Adisa Group is operating in Germany in the field of tank terminals and retail stations. In Germany, a large number of defective tanks in retail stations, which will come over the years in the rehabilitation. The market will therefore increase even more in the near future.

As the business runs very well on diesel tank sector, we wanted to find a competitive solution for petrol tanks as well. Thus, DRK32 came to the consideration to adapt the system DOPA® for the requirements of the German customers and to use for petrol tanks.

The Challenge

Partly applied reinforcment layer
Partly applied reinforcment layer

We have a very good network in Germany to the operators of gas stations, corporations and industry, but we had to convince them that our new product DOPA® 6 Lite is an equivalent solution as the traditional way to install the DOPA® system for the petrol tanks.

The Solution

Lining system after application of the interstice layer

DRK32 has just participated on any events and fairs and explained the benefits of our system.

The functionality of the system is identical with the traditional way of installing. Since the integrity of the first wall (tank shell) of double wall system is assured the second wall is made with the DOPA® system. The material usage of the system is less than DOPA® and the installation time can be cut by approx. 50%.

DRK32 invested in new equipment, tools and smallwares especially designed to have a fast and flexible installation of the DOPA® 6 Lite system.

Our team managed the field pilots and first installations for DOPA® 6 Lite and now they are able to fulfill the demands of the German market.

The Outcome

After having successfully completed pilot project due to the great commitment of sales in Germany, a number of follow-up orders have already been received.

Now if the customer needs a lining system not only for diesel tank but for petrol tank, we can easily offer a very competitive solution.

Especially the short downtime and the high resistance to aggressive fuels such as E10 make the system highly competitive for double wall lining of tanks.

The expected extend of the lifetime is up to 20 years and the highest of the solutions available on the market.
