Splashy Fen festival goers will be pleased to see the newly installed SBS Tank on site – and reassured that their water requirements for the weekend will be sorted.
Established in 1990, Splashy Fen is South Africa’s longest-running music festival. The event, which runs for five days over the Easter weekend, attracts thousands of people to a farm near Underberg, KwaZulu-Natal for a unique outdoor music experience. As the event has grown over the years, so too have the water supply challenges – especially during the morning shower rush. After several years of increasing the number of plastic water tanks on site the event owners set out to ensure that festival goers would be able enjoy their morning shower this year with no more hassles.
The Splashy Fen site now boasts a 150,000-litre backup water storage tank, manufactured, and installed by SBS Tanks which will be refilled every evening to ensure constant water supply to music enthusiasts. Andrew van Rensburg, co-owner of Impi Concept Events, pictured with Gregg McDonagh is looking forward to welcoming festival goers for this year’s event which runs from 06 – 10 April 2023.
SBS Tanks are constructed on-site with no heavy equipment requirements and limited site preparation. The modular, Zincalume® steel panels are bolted together to form a highly wind and weather resistant structure that can be relocated with ease should this be needed. Engineered to last more than 65 years, SBS Tanks are fitted with a potable water liner (drinking water safe) which keeps the water safe from contamination and away from the steel structure, reducing corrosion risks. #steelpaneltanks #boltedtanks #steelboltedtanks
