NCS - expert in metal IBC for the petrochemical industry

Our metal IBC containers are designed for the petrochemical industry, and more specifically Offshore platform operators, for which they have been specially-designed and engineered in order to meet the requirements of these sectors. This industry requires continuous quality checks and tests to comply with very strict specifications. We guarantee the traceability of materials and weld quality (x-ray inspection), supply of full technical documentation as well as tests performed by independent bodies.

Our solutions guarantee the integrity of the chemical properties of your contents throughout their storage, as they are completely isolated from the outside. All our OffShore containers have undergone prior in-depth studies and are designed by our Engineering Design Office in accordance with current international regulations. We guarantee the quality of our containers through checks at each stage: from design to manufacturing.

All our equipment (lifting beam, lifting hook, cradle, etc.) is DNV-accredited, making it possible to guarantee containers and cradles for transportable containers.

To meet the requirements of this business sector, we only offer stainless steel: 304L/316L/316TI STAINLESS STEEL

Our OffShore containers are available in four different capacities:

  • 500 litres
  • 1,000 litres
  • 1,500 litres
  • 2,000 litres

We have also developed a range of specific systems for OffShore containers, cradles of 1 to 3 containers, as well as lifting beams suitable for the cradles.
