Structa
Rockdale, one million litre multi-column tank.

Internationally over the years, the 40 plus-year proprietary “Structa Flagship Product”, namely Prestank, has proven to be a hygienically safe, cost-effective, and reliable water-storage solution for the mining industry, communities, agriculture, municipalities, commercial sectors, private sectors and even for personalized storage.

Structa’s water storage solutions play a very important role during the drought currently experienced in South Africa and in the southern African region.

Structa technology offers the mining industry two durable and cost-effective water-storage products, namely the Roddy Tank, for lower water volumes, and the Prestank, for water volumes above 10 000 litres.

Prestank can be used for various water storage applications, including temporary or permanent installations at mines, power stations, building sites, hospitals, water utilities, municipalities, rural communities, and farms.

The Roddy Tank is ideally suited for smaller villages, schools and clinics in rural areas, and therefore suitable for mining exploration projects as well.

The Roddy Tank is a sectional, round, galvanized water storage tank that offers 3 900 litres, 7 200 litres and 10 000 litres capacities.

Structa’s customisable, high-quality pressed-steel sectional tanks are hot-dip galvanized for corrosion control in accordance with SANS 121 (or ISO 1461) galvanizing standards.

The thickness of the hot-dip galvanized coat is applied within a range of 80 μm to 100 μm – more than five times that of zinc on pre-galvanized corrugated steel cylindrical tanks.

This ensures an extended maintenance-free life when water with aggressively corrosive properties needs to be stored.

Examples of Prestanks supplied to mines:

  • Styldrift Marengski mine Rustenburg: 1 million litre
  • Northam Platinum Booysendsdal UG2 mine: 100 000 litre elevated on 12 m tower
  • De Beers Venetia mine in Limpopo: 200 000 litre
  • Coal of Africa mine, Vele coal mine in Mussina: 560 000 litre
  • Amplats Bafokeng Rasimoe mine Rustenburg: 500 000 litre

Prestanks have also been supplied to mines in Zimbabwe, Angola as well as Sasol (Timane gas pipeline project) in Mozambique.

Currently Structa is supplying Prestanks to a site in Nigeria.

Structa is able to export their products anywhere globally.
