ADBA MEMBER PRESS RELEASE
Kirk Environmental, part of KIRK GROUP, is pleased to introduce a new tank system to their existing market-leading product range: the AQUA•TANK pre-cast concrete tank for the water and wastewater treatments industry in the UK.
AQUA•TANK provides a safe, cost effective method of containment with numerous applications within the water, wastewater and industrial sectors. Guaranteed factory controlled quality combined with a robust structure and tried and tested design principals, offer life expectancy previously only achieved with cast in-situ installations. Post-tensioned pre-cast tanks have been a commercially viable alternative to a certain selection of in-situ concrete structures for over 30 years. Following a period of extensive product development, AQUA•TANK was one of the first to locate the post tensioning tendons within the pre-cast panel and was the first system to incorporate the no maintenance EPDM rubber jointing gasket.
Benefits of choosing a pre-cast tank system are many: cost effective with off-site manufacture and fast installation times possible in any weather conditions, rugged construction resulting in over 40 years design life, optimum storage capabilities ranging from 50m³ to 12,500m³, minimum maintenance and health and safety standardised construction methods to name a few.
Andrew Peace, managing director, Kirk Group, is optimistic about the Kirk’s ever growing product range and its latest addition:
The introduction of this product allows KIRK to fully service all our clients’ storage tank needs and fits very well within our current range of products and services.
Our enhanced product range will raise the bar on the level of quality, service and performance in the tank industry and the working partnerships and framework agreements we currently have with our clients will benefit greatly from a unique package that will significantly enhance any project.
Kirk will incorporate the AQUA•TANK product into our overall packaged solution along with foundations, access steelwork, GRP covers, pipework and BIODOME® gas holders, all of which are constructed on-site by KIRK’s dedicated team to provide a finished installation of the highest possible quality.
