Structure-flex tanks provide fresh water to Haiti earthquake victims

Posted: Thursday 15th April 2010

In the wake of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Structure-flex has supplied a leading aid agency with 80 flexi-tanks that will be used to store and distribute clean water to the survivors who are struggling to rebuild their lives.

These robust, high capacity [6,000 and 10,000 litre], highly flexible tanks will be used in two very different ways. As static tanks they will be sited in strategic urban locations to enable local inhabitants to fill their own containers, but when mounted onto trucks they can be used to transport water to the more remote outlying areas. In truck mounted applications, each tank features four 1-inch outlet pipes to help facilitate a variety of delivery options.

Structure-flex manufactures bulk liquid packaging systems in size capacities ranging from 500 to 24,000 litres, and its product portfolio features both single trip [disposable] and reusable multi-trip containers.

Matt Doughty, Structure-flex Head of Marketing, said: “2010 is the company’s 40th anniversary year, and in that time we have supplied flexi-tanks to many of the organisations which provide support to countries around the world in times of disaster and devastation. They are ideal for the task which awaits them in Haiti.”
