FP McCann’s Large Panel Tank system was chosen as part of a drainage improvement scheme located in Llanelli, South Wales.
The purpose of the tank was to provide an additional 2700m³ attenuation to the existing combined drainage system, to ease run off into the nearby Loughor Estuary during storm conditions.
The project in numbers
The tank was modelled in 90 precast units, totalling approximately 1060 tonnes.
In addition to the precast units, a 775m² insitu base slab was also detailed. 82 bespoke sheets of mesh were modelled and exported directly to FP McCann’s mesh production facility located at Byley, Cheshire. The mesh sheets were then delivered to site, where their careful design contributed to a fast paced install.
