Commercial Water Tanks
Ensuring uninterrupted water supply - vital for daily operation and business growthView Application
The highly corrosion resistant range is suitable for most applications with capacity range of 12kL – 3300 kL.
The SBS® Standard water tank range offers water and liquid storage capacities from 12kL to 3.3 million litres. Tank panels comprise Zincalume®G300 steel, a continuous hot-dipped aluminium/zinc alloy-coated structural steel from Bluescope Steel and are highly corrosion resistant in most applications. Liners, suitable for storage of potable, effluent, leachate, saltwater, and other industrial liquids, prevent stored liquids from making direct contact with the structure, further reducing corrosion risk factors.

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.
Fairview Estates in Ballito required a bulk water storage tank to store the potable (drinking) drawn from a borehole after it had gone through a filtration plant. SBS Tanks installed an ST17/03 from the Standard Tank Range, which provides the estate with 300,000 litres of drinking water storage.
Aurora wanted to ensure that in the event of municipal water challenges, they were able to continue operations and ensure optimal patient care.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality has been experiencing water challenges for
several years. As part of one of nine initiatives implemented by the municipality, which comprises
Gqeberha and Kariega (previously known as Port Elizabeth and Uitenhage respectively), a 460,000
litre bulk water storage tank from SBS® Tanks was installed.
SBS Tanks installed a quick and cost-effective solution to increase bulk potable water storage for the KwaGuqa township, situated west of eMalahleni.

The SBS Group is situated in the same industrial park as the KZN Distribution Centre for a national food and clothing chain. The distribution centre is responsible for the delivery of dry and frozen food goods to stores within the Durban and KwaZulu-Natal region.
Expansion of a packaging and manufacturing operation in Gauteng, South Africa, necessitated the installation of effluent water tanks. The company required tanks to house the untreated wastewater following the washing of printed ink logos and company details off recycled paper and cardboard, to be used as raw materials in the production of new product. The SBS® team worked with the client’s engineers to design the most effective effluent water storage system for the site.
SBS® is no stranger to the Mozambican Port of Beira having previously worked alongside consulting engineers in a bid to upgrade the water storage capabilities for potable and processing water and for fire protection reservoirs. Situated on the east coast of Africa, Mozambique averages about 1.5 tropical cyclones a year, and although not often higher than Category 2, these typically cause widespread damage.
Don’t let the cost or lack of municipal water supply cripple the production or profitability of your business operations. CHEP, suppliers of high-quality pallets and containers, contacted SBS® to design a system to harvest and store rainwater at their Cornubia, KZN site. SBS® devised a compact system to accommodate the limited space available leaving CHEP able to keep operations running for two and a half weeks, even if municipal supply is disrupted.
High quality seed and high-quality equipment enable the perfect harvest. Every element of your agricultural process affects the outcome: Your harvest. Here’s how seed quality plays an important role:
Moisture control in grain storage means money. The option to harvest and supply grain in an earlier market mitigates some of the risk to the crop and to you, the farmer. Control the temperature and humidity in grain storage with controlled aeration and reduce the risk of crop damage.
Early harvest of grain crops reduces exposure to the elements but comes with the challenge of preventing pest and mould infestation in storage. The SBS® Agri Automated Grain Drying and Conditioning system alleviates these risks for farmers allowing early harvest (as much as three months) at up to 27% moisture content.
The impact of climate change on the agricultural sector has resulted in increased food scarcity worldwide. The agricultural sector has been left struggling to balance the economic challenges posed by droughts, flooding and various other factors such as economic and political uncertainty, and still maintain food supply to meet the demands of an ever-increasing population.
