Tank storage expansion – 1.4 million litres

CLIENT: De Wet Cellar   |   LOCATION: N1 between Worcester and De Doorns

project overview:

Additional wine storage capacity was needed to replace concrete and mild steel tanks which had become obsolete and wasteful. The expansion replaced existing capacity and made provision for additional capacity for surplus wine storage.

The project involved civil construction with structural elements. It included 4 x 350 000 L stainless steel tanks, a tank-cooling system for wine temperature regulation and catwalks with stairs to gain excess to the 14.5 meter high tanks.

The cost-effective design of the tank bases resulted in substantial savings while still being able to support the heavy load of 1 400 tons with ease.
