Promax Tanks Overcome The Big Freeze

October 2021

We worked closely with Promax to provide Cardrona Ski Resort with the water storage they need. 

Increased accommodation capacity at Cardona Resort was required as was additional water storage for fire-fighting purposes. Storing 200,000 litres of water in an alpine setting poses unique challenges but Promax came up with a solution that they dubbed ‚Äúchilly bins on steroids.’

As well as insulating the tanks, they were buried one metre into the ground to minimise visual impact and to further reduce freezing issues. An internal snow frame combats snow loading on the tank dome, while anti-vortex suction plates inside the tank meet fire storage criteria. Plus, seismic stainless flex coupling connections allow for movement in a seismic event.
