Fuel Oil Tank

In my last year post, I showcased the internal condition of a ballast tank in a merchant cargo ship. This time, it is the internal condition of the fuel oil tank.

Fuel oil tank generally will not corrode that easily and usually will appear in pristine condition. What shown here are photos of a fuel oil tank of a cargo ship after 25 years.

There are hardly any rust or wastage on the floor, side shell, brackets and longitudinal stiffeners.

As usual, it is not a pleasant experience going through the tanks as it is pretty cramp inside. As a precaution, the tanks should be gas free before entering.
