    In the heart of Nairobi, Kenya, at the Imara Daima site, SBS Tanks embarked on a transformative water storage project. We installed a ST14/05 water tank, with a capacity of 376 kilolitres, to serve the needs of a local school and church. This significant undertaking marked the first ST tank SBS Tanks supplied to the Kenyan market, setting a precedent for future projects across East Africa. With over 2000 square meters of available roof space, the International Christian Centre (ICC) is eager to harvest collected rainwater for use around the property, as expressed in the video below: The Need for Reliable Water Storage in Schools Schools need a dependable water storage system to ensure a consistent supply of clean water for drinking, sanitation, and emergency situations, even during water shortages or service disruptions. Reliable access to water is crucial for maintaining hygiene standards, supporting daily operations, and safeguarding the health of students and staff. Additionally, an efficient system for water storage at schools supports sustainability education, offering practical lessons in water conservation and environmental stewardship. With the church property playing host to a school, vegetable gardens and a weekly congregation of over 3000 members, our SBS tank ensures a continuous supply of clean water, addressing critical needs for drinking, sanitation, and emergencies. Built to withstand harsh conditions, SBS Steel Water Tanks integrates seamlessly into rainwater harvesting systems, promoting sustainability and offering hands-on learning opportunities about water conservation for students. Advantages of Galvalume Circular Tanks When compared to square pressed panel tanks and concrete reservoirs, Galvalume circular tanks offer superior benefits. The circular shape evenly distributes stress across the tank, reducing the likelihood of structural failures and ensuring long-term durability. Galvalume, a coating of aluminium and zinc, provides exceptional corrosion resistance, making these tanks ideal for various environmental conditions. Additionally, the smoother internal surface of circular tanks minimizes sediment buildup, ensuring cleaner water storage and easier maintenance. For more insights on the benefits of circular versus rectangular tanks, refer to our previous blog post on how to ‘Choose the right tank’. From Planning to Execution: A Community-Driven Effort Our objective was clear: to provide a secure and reliable water storage solution to support the school and church’s operations, including cleaning, sanitation, drinking water, and garden irrigation. The tank was an integral part of the construction plans for the church’s new sanctuary and other community facilities, which included a football field and a basketball court. We aimed to ensure that the complex had a stable water supply to maintain vegetation within the compound and support the growing needs of the kindergarten and primary school. Precision Construction and Community Impact Leveraging the strength of the church community, the construction materials for the ring beam and foundation were supplied by congregant members, exemplifying a community-driven project. ICC had obtained approval from the city council for the construction of the ring beam and civil works, providing a solid foundation for the tank. Then it was time for our SBS East Africa team to step in, executing the installation over six days. Our dedication ensured that despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the project stayed on track. We strictly enforced mandatory temperature checks, sanitation protocols, and mask usage to ensure safety. Overcoming Challenges and Celebrating Success The project timeline faced unexpected delays due to the pandemic, but our resilience saw it through to completion. The final result was a robust water storage solution that met all the project’s objectives. The tank will significantly improve the water supply to the church, increasing their storage capacity from the borehole supply, and will result in cost benefits and reduced expenses for the organisation, thus enhancing their operations and supporting their activities. This project underscores SBS Tanks’ commitment to providing sustainable water storage solutions. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with stakeholders expressing immense satisfaction with the final outcome. It has added visibility and provided references for future clients, showcasing the advantages of circular steel tanks over traditional concrete reservoirs. The project has demonstrated that water storage can be affordable and accessible, fostering a change in mindset and encouraging the adoption of newer, more efficient technologies in water storage tanks. ***************************************************************************************** SBS Tanks® is Africa’s leading manufacturer and supplier of modular steel panel water storage tanks fitted with an internal liquid storage liner.

    In the rugged and remote terrain of West Pokot County, Kenya, access to clean and reliable water has long been a significant challenge for the local community. However, an innovative water storage tank project led by Solyon Enterprises and SBS Tanks East Africa has brought about a transformative change, significantly improving the lives of approximately 1,000 households in the surrounding area. Project Overview Solyon, in collaboration with the Kenyan government, embarked on a mission to supply potable water to the residents of West Pokot County. The project involved the installation of two SBS water tanks: an EC04/02 with a capacity of 12,000 litres and an EC08/02 with a capacity of 50,000 liters. These tanks were strategically located on hilltops to ensure that water could be gravity-fed to the community, providing a consistent and reliable water supply. Water storage tanks are essential for municipalities aiming to provide reliable and safe water supplies to remote communities. They ensure water availability, support emergency preparedness, overcome infrastructure limitations, and reduce water loss. Additionally, they improve water pressure, support peak demand, enhance water quality, and promote cost efficiency and sustainable water management. Agility teams for Overcoming Challenges The project’s most significant challenge was the remoteness of the installation sites. The terrain was, at times, so difficult to navigate that heavy-weight vehicles could not reach the high locations, necessitating the manual transportation of materials and equipment, often via motorbikes, to site. This was only possible due to SBS Tanks modular design. Components were already shipped in knock-down form, allowing for easy transportation and stacking, which enables SBS steel water tanks to be installed anywhere and everywhere, more easily than traditional concrete reservoirs – read more about the benefits of pressed panel tanks here. The construction process was straightforward but required meticulous attention to detail. Site preparation involved ensuring a stable foundation, after which the tanks were assembled using SBS Tanks’ modular and easy-to-install components. The wide, shallow reservoirs were assembled swiftly, demonstrating the efficiency and practicality of SBS Tanks’ design. Throughout the build process, stringent quality assurance measures were implemented to ensure that the tanks met SBS Tanks’ high standards and ISO requirements. From using durable, high-quality materials to ensuring that all construction procedures were followed methodically, every step was taken to guarantee the reliability and longevity of the tanks. Community Impact and Engagement The installation of these water tanks has had a profound impact on the local community. When the final commissioning of the project takes place, the residents will have access to a reliable source of potable water, significantly reducing the distance they need to travel to fetch water each day. This improvement has not only enhanced daily living conditions of countless individuals and households but has also supported public health and sanitation in the area. With pumps distributing water directly to households, the project has effectively transformed water access in West Pokot County. Outcomes and Reflections SBS Tanks East Africa offers a comprehensive solution to the water storage needs of municipalities and organisations. With their durable construction, customisable capacity, and easy installation, SBS Water storage tanks are ideal for remote locations and are designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, ensuring long-term reliability with minimal maintenance. Reflecting on this project, the feedback from the stakeholders has been overwhelmingly positive. On the commissioning certificate, the client expressed their satisfaction by describing the SBS East Africa Tanks as an “excellent product with a professional team.” They were particularly impressed with the proficiency of the installation team and the speed at which the project was completed. The success of the Solyon project in West Pokot County stands as a testament to the transformative power of reliable water storage solutions. SBS Tanks East Africa is committed to supporting municipalities and organisations in their mission to provide essential water services, even in the most challenging and remote locations. By choosing SBS Tanks, you are investing in a sustainable, efficient, and effective solution that can significantly improve the quality of life for communities in need. ***************************************************************************************** SBS Tanks® is Africa’s leading manufacturer and supplier of modular steel panel water storage tanks fitted with an internal liquid storage liner.

    As with many African countries, securing continuous, safe drinking water for remote communities poses several challenges for Governments and local municipalities. Available infrastructure, cost concerns for storage, distribution and treatment as well as quality issues, limited resources and environmental impact, all determine the success of a ruling parties dreams of providing core services. The same challenges were faced by NYEWASCO Water Works, of Nyeri county in Kenya when confronted with the need to provide clean water for its 759 000+ residents. Their solution? A SBS 886 000 litre tank. As explained by Peter Kahotho, MD of NYEWASCO Water Company, in the video below, new technologies in water storage led NYWASCO to Robert Tunje, CEO of the SBS East Africa team. Water Storage has come a long way since concrete reservoirs were hailed as the all-in-one water storage solution. As concrete is prone to cracking and leakages, which are not easy to repair, an SBS Zincaluma-bolted tank provided a lightweight, quick-install solution to the Nyeri county water expansion programme. Municipal water will flow into the SBS tank for storage, before being piped down to the community living in the shadow of the mountain.   After spending three days laying the strong foundations, which included a ring beam mixed with a modified slab and a compacted sand top layer, the SBS East Africa installation team was able to begin work on the ST26/04 tank body. Robert reflects fondly on this seven-day project build, recalling the stunning landscape, frosty weather, and the beautiful community members they met throughout their time in Nyeri. Future plans include expanding the water network and installing more storage facilities across the region to ensure optimal coverage. And by partnering with a SBS Tank, the 60 year+ lifespan, minimal degradation and low maintenance plan means Nyeri’s water woes are a thing of the past!   ***************************************************************************************** SBS Tanks® is Africa’s leading manufacturer and supplier of modular steel panel water storage tanks fitted with an internal liquid storage liner.

    Universities have a high demand for water to support daily operations such as sanitation, cleaning, and food preparation in student housing facilities. Adequate water supply ensures that these essential services can function smoothly, maintaining a hygienic and comfortable environment for students, faculty, and staff. When the University doubles as a teaching hospital, as Aga Khan University (AKU) will do in Kampala, Uganda, then the need for a continuous supply of water is even more critical. The Aga Khan University and Hospital complex represents a beacon of progress and innovation in the region, promising to provide top-notch education and healthcare services to the community. AKU needed to ensure that in the event of municipal water challenges, they were able to continue operations and ensure optimal patient care. After consultation with our partners, Allied Plumbing, to establish the needs of the project, SBS Tanks East Africa installed two Standard Range back-up water storage tanks, with a gross storage capacity of 1 048kl (>1mil litres) to provide backup water storage for the academic university, student complex as well as the community hospital. With the supervision of our Kenyan Engineers, Allied Plumbers completed the ring beams and civils work for the foundations, allowing our installation team to install the two SBS tanks (2 x ST 14/07’s) for storage. Plumbing connections were completed, connecting the tanks to the municipal supply to ensure that all water used in the facility is potable and safe for consumption, delivering a complete integrated water supply solution to students, staff and hospital patients The outpatient clinic will open in quarter two of 2024, with the remainder of the building project continuing throughout the year, ready for 2025 academic in-take.

    Located just outside of Ballito, in KwaZulu-Natal, the 480-hectare Fairview Estates has set out to offer homeowners an opportunity to return to traditional farm living or homesteading within a secure, eco-conscious development.  Balancing the need for modern amenities and convenience with spacious and sustainable living, Fairview Estates contacted SBS® Tanks to install a water tank for the storage of safe drinking water. Bulk water storage to provide water security The steel panel tank, manufactured and installed by SBS Tanks, will provide the estate with storage for 300,000 litres of drinking water. Fairview Estates taps into groundwater from multiple boreholes on the estate. This water is fed into a settling tank and through an onsite filtration plant before being stored in the bulk water storage tank from SBS Tanks. Safe storage of drinking water SBS Tanks are ideally suited for the storage of potable water (drinking water). The secure roof structure, with a lockable access hatch and ladder, prevents the influx of debris, leaves or dust and unauthorised access to the water stored within the tank. A potable water-safe liner or bladder, fitted within the steel panel tank structure, ensures that the water does not come into contact with the steel structure of the tank. This not only maintains the condition of the clean, filtered water but adds an additional layer of corrosion protection to the tank. Confident that their water supply is secure, Fairview estate farmers can live off the grid and enjoy sustainable ‘farm to fork’ living, growing their own produce and living off their land. Is water security a priority for you? Does your residential estate require a backup, borehole or bulk water storage tank to protect your water supply? Whether you plan to be completely off-grid or remain connected to municipal water, but need water security for your residential – or business – development, SBS Tanks can assist. Contact us today and let us help guide you in the selection of the best-fit water storage tank for your needs. [...] Read more...
    The SBS Group, SBS Tanks, SBS Energy and SBS Global Solutions would like to thank the SBS clients, suppliers, staff, friends and family who supported the 2023 SBS Wheelchair Challenge.
