The Water and Sewerage Corporation of Santo Domingo (CAASD) has clarified in the national newspaper of the Dominican Republic, El Nacional, that the Glass-Fused-to-Steel materials used for the construction of two 7.5 million gallon tanks in Santo Domingo meet International Standard ISO 28765 which regulates the design, manufacture and construction of Glass-Fused-to-Steel bolted tanks.

The CAASD reaction comes after CST Storage and Florida Aquastore published a paid advertisement in a morning newspaper which claimed that Permastore failed to comply with the quality specifications of the bid.

The contractor company CONAMSA also referred to the complaint by CST Storage attributing it to commercial competition.

“The engineer, Carlos Mota, manager of CONAMSA, explained that as winning company of the tender [they] are free to choose the supplier firm that suits the interests of the Dominicans”.

“He explained that [they] talked with company executives [at] CST Storage, but they do not have the technology to make a work of this magnitude”.

This project is to supply the world’s largest Glass-Fused-to-Steel water tanks. Two tanks each with a capacity of 7.5 million gallons (28 million litres).

“Mota said that [they] decided to choose Permastore [a] European [based] supplier firm that does have the technology to do the work and also with a price of 40% below the bid price [of] CST Storage and Florida Aquastore CST Storage”.
