The transport of two stainless steel tanks in the Wrocław region of Poland has caused quite a stir. It was not only their size that caught the imagination, but careful planning of the route and the loading, transportation and installation of the tanks too.
Gpi presents a new video about building tanks on-location.
At Gpi, it is possible to build tanks on-location. For this process, Gpi makes use of a Coil Building Machine, using which tanks measuring up to 30 metres in diameter and 30 metres in height can be constructed. The machine makes use of a decoiling system, which unrolls the stainless steel and cuts it off to create a body section, after which the welding process takes place entirely automatically. The tanks are lifted up by means of a computer-controlled hydraulic lift, so that the body section can be welded on its underside. The compactness of the system makes building large, high-quality stainless steel tanks on location a possibility.
