Richard Footer, Area Sales Manager, recently revisited the site of an existing PERMASTORE® Tank in Canada.  The tank (pictured above) is working as efficiently as the day it was installed in June 2013 and is expected to do so for in excess of 50 years, based on the expected 50 year service life of a PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank.

The 230m3 (60,230 USG) Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank was installed by one of our local  experienced Canadian Distributors, Western Tank and Lining to supply potable water at the Sea to Sky Gondola Resort in Squamish, British Columbia.  The PERMASTORE® Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank also features a Glass-Fused-to-Steel floor and a PERMADOME® Glass-Fused-to-Steel Roof in the ISOFUSION® V700 glass grade, which is suitable for a wide range of tank applications including fire water tanks, dry bulk solid storage tanks and filter tanks.

To access the site, you have to take the cable car from the ground to a height of 885 metres before trekking further towards the peak of the mountain to reach the PERMASTORE® tank site. The tank   provides essential drinking water for visitors to the Sea to Sky Gondola site and the wider surrounding mountain area.

Permastore’s lengthy design engineering experience and expertise means that providing a containment solution for this mountainous region of British Columbia was completed with ease. This particular PERMASTORE® tank was also designed to cope with the high potential snow loads and high wind speeds that can regularly effect this mountainous location.

The innovative modular nature of the PERMASTORE® Product range, of Tank products makes them an optimum solution for an end customer when considering a storage solution in remote or hard to reach, off the beaten track location such as this mountainous site.  Permastore has successfully completed a significant number of projects across a wide range of difficult to reach locations in remote locations around the world including Easter Island in in the middle of the Southern Pacific ocean, the Smolyan Lakes area of Bulgaria in Europe and Micronesia in the Eastern Pacific among countless others.
