ACO Tunnel

Storage basins

The ACO large-scale tank system along with the configuration and layout of the entire system is implemented according to project requirements. This includes designs for the storage, temporary storage and drainage of liquid media. The tanks consist of multiple reinforced concrete rectangles (concrete quality at least C 35/C 45 DIN 1045), which are assembled at the construction site by the ACO installation team. The cover plate is already pre-assembled at the factory. A unique feature of the ACO large-scale tank system is the innovative clamping system that ensures rapid mounting. In addition as the segments have a special seal all the way around, there is no need for tedious and costly grouting of the components. Once installed, the tank is immediately sealed and watertight up to the top edge of the cover plate, meaning it can be filled with water and a tightness test can be performed right away. Thanks to the new technologies, installation times and the associated costs are significantly reduced. Particularly where ground water has to be drawn off, rapid installation is valuable.
