Storage and handling services for LPG in Spain


Koalagas is a joint-venture created by Decal España and Primagaz. It is located in the port of Barcelona and supplies storage and handling services specifically for LPG

It is the first company in Spain to have adopted TEXSOL® protection for LPG spheres in order to achieve maximum safety. It involves tanks using innovative technology for the storage of propane and butane.

The use of LPG spheres coated with TEXSOL® forms part of Decal’s safety policy. The structure of the tank walls (sand and plastic thread in the ratio of one cubic metre of sand to 250 kilometres of plastic thread) makes the tanks more resistant to fire and explosion than traditional LPG tanks.
