Concept was engaged to engineer and installed a unique fluid storage solution for a client’s operation in Central Queensland.
The natural gas project required a large water storage solution to provide water locally for beneficial purposes such as irrigation and stock water.
Concept’s innovative solution meant that a Concept Tank™ could be deployed in half the time of a traditional dam and with half the environmental footprint, thereby allowing Westside to quickly and efficiently implement a storage solution while minimising overall impact.
With just a hardened earth pad supplied by the client, Concept crews got to work installing the 56ML tank which was designed with various safeguards for the harsh conditions of the region.
The double-liner featured water tube ballasting to ensure liner integrity at any water level, a must when dealing with evaporation in extreme climates. Radar level sensors are monitored remotely, and a sealed poly sump provides added durability, compared with conventional options.
