Flexitank 500kl pillow tanks; multi-project applications and savings.
Flexitank recently supplied four 500kl water pillow tanks for work associated with construction of various LNG pipeline projects in Western Australia.
Manufactured, delivered and installed almost four weeks ahead of schedule, and measuring some 26m2 in size, each pillow tank has thus far exceeded all customer requirements and are performing exceptionally well.
Offering a capacity of 500,000 litres (132,086 US gallons) each, the tanks were delivered as a ready to be installed product; ground sheets, gate valves, cam lock couplings and pressure valves were all pre-installed, meaning once the site preparation was completed (a simple grading of the site flat was required), each tank was installed within 5 hours by six people.
No site requirements for concrete slabs, major earth works or civil approvals. Most importantly, the environmentla footprint our pillow tanks have used is virtually nothing!
The result? Flexitank achieved a 12% saving for our client in the overall cost of 2 million litres of water storage, when compared to traditional tank offerings. Most importantly, once the site work has been completed, the pillow tanks will be folded back up, packed into their reusable shipping crates, and dispatched to their next job in Malaysia.
Once deployed for a second time, the overall saving to our client across both projects will exceed some 37%. This is an exceptional result for our client who put their faith and trust in our ability to design and deliver soundly engineered pillow tanks for their requirements, and now stand to reap the rewards.
