Florida Aquastore Installs 5.3-Million-Gallon Wastewater Effluent Storage Tank In Trinidad


Florida Aquastore and Utility Construction, Inc., the leading supplier of bolted steel tanks in Florida, the Caribbean and Latin America, has completed installation of the first of two 5.3-million-gallon wastewater effluent storage tanks for the Beetham Water Recycling Plant in Point Lisas, Trinidad. The two 204’ diameter x 24’ tall Aquastore glass-fused-to-steel tanks with free span aluminum domes will store highly treated wastewater effluent that will be pumped nearly 40 km from the Beetham Water Recycling Plant located in Port of Spain where it will be stored at the Point Lisas Industrial Estate. Florida Aquastore, a sub-contractor to Super Industrial Services, Ltd., a Trinidad general contractor, will complete installation of both tanks in under 14 weeks.

“We’re very pleased to be installing our high-quality Aquastore glass-fused-to-steel tank system at the Beetham Water Recycling Plant. We’re proud that it will provide for Beetham the lowest total cost of ownership of any tank technology on the market. Further, it will never require coating or re-coating.” said Matt Whelchel, President of Florida Aquastore.
