The team at Edward Howell Galvanizers was called in by Abtec Engineering to galvanize around 80 tonnes of support steelwork for the creation, which has a diameter of 24 metres.
Abtec Engineering in Staffordshire was responsible for constructing the tank, with the works starting on the project back in March 2015. The tank is currently being installed onsite in Sweden, with that part of the construction expected to take around ten weeks.
Jim Lindsay, Sales Manager at Edward Howell Galvanizers, explained: “The tank was processed at our site for protection against the external environment, with hot-dip galvanizing the most environmentally-friendly finish to prevent corrosion and give decades of preservation against the elements without needing to be maintained. We were pleased to work with Abtec Engineering on this project and it’s great to know work we’ve completed is now being used over a thousand miles away.”
