Site Built tanks

High-grade stainless steel tanks built directly on location

Gpi can also produce tanks directly on location. For this, we often use our unique Coil Building machine, using which we can highly efficiently produce tanks with a diameter of up to 30 metres, and a height of up to 30 metres.

Up to 15.000 m3
Gpi produces, delivers and installs storagetanks from 1 litre up to 15.000 m3.
EN14015 / API 650
Gpi can produce storagetanks which comply with standards, regulations and building codes as EN14015, EN13445, KIWA, ASME, BRL, API 650, PGS 29, PGS 30, Eurocode 3, DIN 4119 and PED.
Mounting VCA-P
Trust our VCA-P qualified mounting department to mount your tank.

Although building on-location often involves building large storage tanks, we are also able to build smaller tanks measuring, for example, 10m3, on-location. Whenever a tank is built in the factory such that it can no longer be installed, we are able to prefabricate it to the greatest extent possible and then assemble it on-location.

Safety is of the highest importance for tanks of any size produced by any construction method, both during manufacture and use. Tanks can be set up according to all the relevant standards, such as Eurocode 3, EN 14015, ASME and API 650. We can also help you if your installation falls under a PGS 29 / 30 /31 regime.

Coil building

The Gpi Coil Building system is a production method via which tanks with a diameter of up to 30 metres and a height of up to 30 metres can be produced. 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.

Parallel production

When identical tanks need to be built on-location within a short time frame, we can also employ a parallel production process. In contrast to our Coil Building system, we then build several tanks simultaneously, whereby one centrally-positioned crane carries out lifting operations.
