Classic Protective Coatings crew just completed renovation of a 2 MG ground storage tank in Gillette, Wyoming. Gillette is a community of approximately 30,000 people. The City calls itself the “Energy Capital of the Nation” noting that the state of Wyoming provides nearly 35% of the nation’s coal supply. Over the last decade, Gillette’s population has increased 48%. We are happy to help be apart of revitalizing the community by providing rehabilitation to the ground storage tank. This tank required custom fabrication by extending the staircase on the shell of the tank in addition to adding a staircase from the top balcony up to the center of the roof. Our welders did a fantastic job ensuring all angles were correct to fit the tank perfectly. One thing that sets us apart from other water tank contractors is our ability to do our own in-house welding and fabrication. Our large capacity welding and rigging equipment compliment our highly skilled certified welders. This project required class A full containment, interior wet abrasive blast to SSPC-SP10 with a zinc epoxy coating system, exterior abrasive blast to SSPC-SP6 with a zinc, epoxy, urethane coating system.
