Gpi recently received an order from an existing customer in the biogas industry for the production of four glycol storage tanks.
Stainless steel storage tanks
Stainless steel tanks from 500 litres to 15,000 m3
Stainless steel tanks in all sorts of sizes
Gpi produces all kinds of storage tanks in all sorts of sizes for all applications and industries imaginable. This range spans high-quality finished 500 litre vessels for pharmaceutical end products, to 15,000 m3 tanks for drinking water or the storage of semi-finished products in the chemical industry.
Stainless Steel tanks for storing high-quality products
Gpi manufactures stainless steel storage tanks from 500 l to 15,000 m³. Depending on the destination, we can build the tanks in our factory in Lopik, in our factory in Groot-Ammers, or construct them on-location. We produce high-grade tanks and storage tanks up to a diameter of 6 m at our Lopik facility. From there, we can reach most locations quickly by road.
If the tank cannot be transported by road, we often create storage tanks at our location in Groot Ammers. This factory is located right on the banks of the river Lek, allowing us to transport the tanks via water. If transporting the tanks to you is not an option, we can also build tanks measuring up to 30 metres in diameter and 30 metres in height directly on-location. For this, we often use our Coil Building system, which ensures highly-efficient manufacture and high-quality tanks.
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. All technical designs, such as heated/cooled tanks, double bottoms, domed roofs, or double-walled tanks are possible.
Do you have any questions about our storage tanks?
Types of storage tanks
The right oil storage tank is very important for the storage of oils and fats. Oils are at the basis of many products, both for food and cosmetics and for the pharmaceutical or chemical industries. We produce your oil storage tank from stainless steel. Any size of oil storage tank is possible.
Stainless steel milk tanks come in many shapes and sizes: from storage tanks for raw milk to cheese milk and VLOG milk. For each stainless steel milk tank we can make specific designs for the right processing. Read more below about possibilities for agitators, crystallization, insulation etc. There are also endless possibilities for storage tanks for other types of dairy.
In addition to storage tanks, which are generally used for storing liquids, we also produce stainless steel silos. Silos are used for dry storage in almost every industry: for storage of food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products to storage of animal feed, building materials, plastics and other chemical products. Silos, often stainless steel conical tanks, require an individual design. We produce your stainless steel silo to measure and with the required specifications. We take care of the entire silo construction: from the customized design by our own engineers to the construction and transport. Our silo builders have experience in producing for example pellet storage silos.
For the storage and production of beer, we build both storage tanks and process tanks. A bright beer tank is a stainless steel beer tank for the storage of filtered beer. Are you looking for a stainless steel conical tank, such as a fermentation tank? Read more about bright beer tanks (bbt) and cylindrical conical tanks for fermentation (cct) on our page about beer tanks.
Water storage tank
We have produced various water storage tanks in recent years. From a hygienic design for demineralized water, for example, to a water tank for contaminated waste water from a chemical plant that must, for example, comply with guidelines for soil hazardous liquids, flammable substances or other hazardous liquids.
Other storage tanks
We produce for all industries, so customized storage tanks for any application.
Specifications/ additons for storage tanks
Each application requires its own specifications and additions. For a hygienic design, we think along with you about the right connections and agitators, but we can also add cleaning equipment. Various choices for a particular top and bottom are possible: conical, flat or sloping, open, convex, etc. Each of these options also offers different possibilities. We also supply double-walled tanks with insulation. Our experts can advise you on the right type of jacket and insulation.
In every storage tank design we take into account the minimum and maximum design pressure, liquid tightness, minimum and maximum temperature, correct placement of connections, manhole hatches, external design loads, loads from agitators, impact on the legs caused by movement of the liquid in the tank and the platform.
Standards for stainless steel tanks
Specific standards, laws or regulations often apply to storage tanks.
PGS 29, NEN-EN14015, Eurocode 3, API 650, DIN 4119
If a PGS 29 regime applies to your installation in the Netherlands (the guideline for above-ground storage of flammable fluids), your tanks usually have to comply with NEN-EN14015 in combination with Eurocode 3. Please note: PGS29 recently changed. Gpi can tell you what this entails for you.
Other standards which Gpi often applies for storage tanks are API 650 and DIN 4119. Naturally, we can also be of assistance if PGS30 or PGS31 apply to your installation.
PED pressure vessels according to NEN-EN13445
Lloyds audited Gpi, and accredited the company to independently design and manufacture pressure tanks over 0.5 bar (H + H1 certified). If your storage tank is part of a PED installation, the project engineer will closely collaborate with the client and our own QA/QC employee in order to carry out a risk analysis and set up a test & inspection plan. These tanks are usually designed to be in line with NEN-EN13445.
KIWA BRL-K756 storage tanks
Gpi is BRL-K756-2-certified by KIWA for the construction of vertical single-walled and double-walled storage tanks up to 150,000 m3. The tanks, of a specific design, are applied in chemical storage facilities, which since January 2008 must comply with the BRL-K903/08 standard.
This is just a selection of our options. If your building code or regulation is not listed here, then contact Gpi.
E&A Scheer B.V. from Amsterdam has been in the rum trade for over two and a half centuries. Gpi supplied 58 new stainless steel tanks to E&A Scheer.
Gpi Tanks engineered and manufactured four stainless steel tanks for a major Circular Steam Project. With this project our customer invests in an innovative technology to convert water-based waste into energy.
“We see Gpi as a professional party that has been making its mark for years. The people at Gpi are good listeners. We can rely on them to deliver high-quality tanks of all shapes and sizes at short notice.
“Gpi certainly pulled out all the stops. They were really keen to win this contract. And they succeeded, mainly because they showed they understood the picture in every detail.“
Browar PINTA recently purchased 10 cylindrical conical beer tanks (CCT) from Gpi with a capacity of 100 hl (5 tanks), 200 hl (4 tanks) and 50 hl (1 tank) respectively. The order also included 2 bright beer tanks (BBT), each with a capacity of 195 hl.
Gpi recently delivered new stainless steel milk tanks of 250 m3 and 300 m3, an expansion that makes production planning a lot easier.
Gpi recently had the honour of supplying two stainless steel water tanks for a very unusual project. These will be used as training tanks for rescue divers.
Gpi has constructed an on-site tank for USG Geleen with a capacity of no less than 7300m3. The tank has been designed to EN 14015, the European norm for flat-bottomed tanks.
