Westland District Council, based on New Zealand’s South Island West Coast, has adopted bolted steel storage tanks for its tank farm.
According to Tasman Tanks, its bolted steel storage tanks were selected over traditional concrete tanks for potable water supply. The water will supply urban and rural consumers.
Westland District Council has continually invested in Tasman Tanks’ bolted steel storage tanks for its potable water supply. This time, it has taken 450m³ bolted steel storage tanks for its Hokitika tank farm, with the latest 1,500m³ in production to be installed in the coming months.
Tasman Tanks claims its modular solutions are speedy and safe to erect, offering a method of construction that can be readily and aesthetically blended with surrounding buildings.
The bolted steel tanks hold a number of advantages over concrete, namely leak resistance, lower build costs, and longer life.
The tanks installed are all steel bolted round tanks of hot dipped galvanised sheet panels that have been powder coated.
