Cable Tank Engineering

In 2016 we were asked to engineer the core structure of two large cable tanks. The possibility to remove them was kept in mind to prevent any structural damage during removal. Additionally we’ve reinforced the existing outer shell of the tank to accommodate the use of more heavier cables.
