Oil Tankers

Our company manufacture a range of petroleum tankers, from mild steel to aluminium.  The pictures below show some of the tankers built by us.

 

18,000-litre tanker for Caltex

18,000-litre tanker for Shell

 

In view of the market requirement in Singapore, we narrowed down our product range to just two, the 18,000-litre tanker mounted on a rigid 6 x 4 truck chassis and the 27,000-litre tanker mounted on a trailer.
