SBS Solutions East Africa Limited, a division of SBS Tanks Pty Ltd, recently completed the successful installation of two bulk fire water storage tanks for Kenyan Wine Agencies (KWAL). The two ST15/05 SBS Tanks, standing at just over six metres tall, have a capacity of 516,000 litres each. Combined, the premium ISO-certified fire suppression water tanks store over 1 million litres.
KWAL is a producer of world-renowned brands including Viceroy and Hunters’ Ciders. The company recently relocated their production facility to Kenya’s first operational Special Economic Zone in Tatu City, Kiambu. The move, after more than three decades in the previous location, to the new custom-built, ultra-modern manufacturing facility in the Tatu Industrial Park required the installation of fixed fire suppression systems and solutions.
Specialists in this space, Flammatech Limited, appointed SBS Solutions East Africa Limited to install the two fire water storage sump tanks at the new facility. SBS Tanks was the ideal fit for the installation at the facility that was designed to be an eco-friendly space, leveraging go-green construction and including systems for responsible consumption, recycling and reuse.
With over a million litres of fire water stored within the two modular, bolted steel panel water tanks, the new facility is not dependent on an external water supply to operate the sprinkler system within the building, safeguarding the lives and livelihoods of KWAL employees and customers and the investment of shareholders.
