Concrete Storage Tanks - Prestressed Storage Tanks | | Shay Murtagh Precast


This tank system is extensively used in the Water and Waste Water Industry and the company has undertaken thousands of Municipal and Industrial projects throughout Ireland and the UK with Local Authorities, Large Industry and Civil/Building Contractors


Tanks are constructed by erecting precast and pre-stressed concrete wall panels on a circular reinforced concrete foundation base. The cylindrical tank walls are then post-tensioned circumferentially with greased and PVC coated super strand housed within a PVC ducts. When post-tensioning is complete a reinforced concrete upstand ring beam is cast on both sides of wall panel at intersection of wall panel and foundation base.


A concrete roof can be provided using a grid system of precast concrete columns and spine beams which are then spanned with flat precast and pre-stressed concrete roof panels to cover entire roof area.
