500m3 Sludge Tank Upgrade.
Two 250 cubic metre capacity tanks were required as part of the sludge handling upgrade works at Watercare Services Ltd, Ardmore Water Treatment Plant.
MTL undertook investigations to establish the most suitable concept design, prepared and completed the detailed design of the stainless steel tanks. Elevated structural steel supports on cast insitu concrete piles were used. A 7m high reinforced concrete retaining wall surrounds the tanks.
The works were challenging given the site constraints. The project was however completed successfully to the clients expectations.
