Concrete Storage Tank Construction

The 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 PVC ducts. When post-tensioning is complete, a reinforced concrete upstand ring beam is cast on both sides of the wall panel at the intersection of wall panel and foundation base.


Concrete roofs can be provided using a grid system of precast concrete columns and spine beams. These have a flat precast and pre-stressed concrete roof panels to cover the entire roof area.

We  at Shay Murtagh pride ourselves on our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Our tanks are built to last, offering unparalleled durability and resilience.
