Brief Background

The Client, Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, needed to upgrade and replace two sectional steel tanks on site, supplied by both mains and borehole. The tanks were corroding, overcapacity and no longer compliant with current water regulations. They needed to be replaced within budget and with minimum disruption to a working hospital.

The Solution

The customer gave us the tank location, footprint and process. Working with our internal sales team, we managed to get to a capacity that worked. After discussions on the capacities required, the replacement tanks were resized and designed to fit on the existing pier walls, to keep disruption to a minimum. 


The Result

It was important to maintain sufficient supply to the hospital during removing the old tanks and installing and commissioning the replacement tanks. To achieve this, our installation team worked closely with other Mechanical Engineers on site, and the water supply was temporarily switched to a mains connection for the shortest possible time, due to the speed of installation and the adherence to an agreed Programme of Work, all of which helped in achieving the clients budget.

The Reaction

The customer was very happy with the results and workmanship from our GRP Tank Engineers.

Our mission: To help you find the most cost-effective solution for your water storage requirements.
