The concept of SC-10 and SC-14 tanks is based on 3 main features, that are the key to these systems' success:
• their exceptional longevity,
• the fact that they don't need maintenance,
• and Soplacas' prefabrication seal of quality.

Their diameters can vary between 8 and 69 meters and their height can go up to 14 meters. They are assembled on an concrete slab made "in situ". Then, the prefabricated and pre-stressed wall panels are laid one at a time and are then connected to each other by post-stressed cables, inserted on the site. SC-10/SC-14 tanks can also be partially or totally buried.

C40/50 Concrete Class
(Can be made of sulphate-resistant concrete)
Larger durability of the structure
No maintenance
Reduced long-term cost
Controlled production Absence of concrete joints
Seal of quality
Vertical stressing Absence of fissures
Fast assembly and rigorous control of schedule Shorter time on site
Reduced workforce
Precise timings
Turn key price Efficient cost control
Horizontal stressing cables inside the panels Better protected against corrosion and acts of vandalism
Vertical joints between panels and horizontal seams injected with cement solution (by the base, at a 10 bar pression), compressed by the post-stress cables Garantees the tightness of the joints
Large range of pre-fabricated complements to the structure
(covers, pillars, etc.)
Adaptatable to any application, from supply centers to treatment plants
