On Monday 28 November, the inauguration of the two largest bolted Glass-Fused-to-Steel tanks in the world took place in Santo Domingo. This important project will ensure that 1,400,000 local residents have access to drinking water. The ceremony was conducted by the President of the Dominican Republic, Lic. Danilo Medina Sanchez, and the Director General of the Corporación del Acueducto y Alcantarillado de Santo Domingo (CAASD), Arq. Alejandro Montás, with the British Ambassador, Mr Chris Campbell, in attendance. Permastore Sales Director, Bruce Atkinson and Area Sales Manager, Ivan Santilal, represented Permastore on this memorable occasion.

This landmark project was supplied by long-term Permastore Distributor, Hidrotec, to CONAMSA who was the main contractor on this prestigious project for CAASD. Permastore was chosen by CAASD due to the high quality associated with the PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel product.  The tanks have a capacity of 28,500m3 each and are 9 rings high with a starter ring and 63 sheets per ring.
