Tank Foundations

Tank foundations vary depending on the size of the tank. A tank’s foundation is one of the main factors that determine the quality & longevity of a any storage tank. In addition to providing and poring the structural concrete needed for the foundation, we perform site clearing, grading, all canal construction required during the tank construction.

3 types of tank foundations:

  1. Earthen
  2. Pile
  3. Concrete

The 2 major factors involved in the choice of the appropriate foundation.
Soil composition and seismic activity. The soil composition and what is underneath the ground and determines the initial type of foundation to use. Seismic activity can explain materials in the ground like soft clay, loose silt, or fine sand.
