Past Engineering Projects: Saica Water Tank Lid

We were asked to provide solution to capping a large water tank at Saicapac factory in Edinburgh.

We decided on a rigid frame octagonal self-supporting structure.

We pre-fabricated the frame at our works, delivered to site and re-built.

The lid was clad on site with aluminium sheeting.

It was lifted into position by crane in one lift and bolted round the perimeter of the tank. (See a short video of this below.) In these short videos you can see the lid constructed by Gems Engineering Ltd being lifted into position by crane in one lift and bolted round the perimeter of the tank.
