Solutions provided

  • The manufacture of tanks requires the assembly and machining of convex bases as well as steel sheets dedicated to the storage of hydrocarbons.

    Since these products were not available on the local market, the company called on VM Steel to ensure a supply that met their requirements.

  • In the diesel storage sector, the quality of the steel products is paramount. VM Steel delivered high-quality materials and all the necessary materials certificates that testify to this quality, complying with the strictest international standards.

  • In the hydrocarbons sector, respecting deadlines is essential. Hence we worked in harmony with our customer and the freight forwarders in order to get our material to the Algerian port within the required and promised deadlines when the order was placed.

The final result

  • 1st tank manufactured, sold and delivered by the customer
  • Our customer uses this achievement to demonstrate its professionalism on the Algerian market.
