MARINE TANKS FOR HYDROCARBONS, LOANO / The fuel tanks for the service station in the new tourist port of Loano were built on shore by PB Lavori Marittimi Srl of Ancona using the Drytech White Tank System. Prefabricated tanks are more practical to construct and offer higher quality results, considering that casting under water often produces honeycombing, irrespective of the skill and care taken by underwater technicians.
Manufactured in waterproof concrete of XS2 exposure class (for constructions submerged in a marine environment), the tanks were injected with DRYflex acrylic resin whilst still on the ground, which pressure-sealed the joints and shrinkage cracks.
They were then transported, launched and sunk.
