READY TO REBUILD: BACK IN BUSINESS AFTER TEXAN TORNADO
Power after storm damage
11 TransCube tanks
Easy to transport stock solution
Recovery in the wake of a twister
When a tornado tore through a water bottling facility in east Texas, the owners needed to find a fast and reliable way to resume production while they rebuilt. They’d require generators far more powerful than the type used for emergency cover, and a constant supply of fuel to run round the clock over several months.
We were given the brief to provide the best possible fuel source – one that was cost-effective for the generator providers to shift and install, and that met local regulations. Experience showed we had a solution ready to go straight in.
Back up and running
The temporary power provider delivered ten power units to provide 1,000kW to the damaged facility. These were fed by 11 TransCubes, which were stacked for ease of transport (taking up 40% less freight space than traditional tanks). Our double-walled solution already has UL142 and US DOT approvals, so there was no delay in getting the power rig up and running.
The equipment was not only cost-effective to provide and install, but it allowed instant fuel on-site with the tanks being transported to the bottling site full of fuel, enabling the bottling plant to return to business as usual faster than anyone thought possible. When the unexpected hits, we’re ready with the answers.
