Cyclone and corrosion resistant water storage solutions

SBS® Global Solutions is no stranger to the Mozambican Port of Beira having previously worked alongside consulting engineers in a bid to upgrade the water storage capabilities for potable and processing water and for fire protection reservoirs.

The SBS® installation team is currently in the process of installing two cyclone resistant fire reservoir tanks for a processing plant in Beira. Situated on the east coast of Africa, Mozambique averages about 1.5 tropical cyclones a year, and although not often higher than Category 2, these typically cause widespread damage.  The water storage tanks, designed to exacting specifications to withstand wind speeds of up to 240km/h, each with a capacity of 257kl will provide a combined effective water storage capability of 514 000 litres. 

With an expected lifespan of over 60 years, SBS® Tanks water storage reservoirs from the SBS® Cyclone Range, are manufactured from Zincalume® steel panels to withstand tough corrosive conditions, essential for coastal applications, with water stored within a potable water liner to prevent contact with the tank structure and further extend the longevity of the system.

Ring 1, which is roughly 1.14m high and the two tanks at the Beira installation will require a further 5 rings, measuring in at 6.28m total height.
