Field Tank Construction

New Tank Construction – Skid Supplied Foundations

Due to environmental conditions at site Elite worked with their client to fabricate structural steel skids for tank foundations in lieu of traditional concrete or gravel bases.  Fabricated in sections in the shop, shipped to site and welded in place on piles, these bases were a great alternative and created a perfectly level surface to construct the tanks.  Two 10,000 bbl tanks were constructed following installation of the skids structures.
