Over 6,000m² of CC5 used to protect bund and tank floor in Athens tank farm

11 December 2017

In July 2017, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used for bund lining at a petroleum tank farm in Athens, Greece.

The existing bunds of the petroleum tank farm were subject to weathering and erosion affecting the ground’s integrity and failure of stability. The client required a long-term, durable and cost-effective solution to combat the issue.

In addition, Athens is subject to extremely hot weather in summer months, with temperatures often hitting highs of 48 degrees, which was putting the heavily vegetated bunds in danger of causing fires. As a result, a weed suppression solution was also required to prevent fires on the site, which could be incredibly dangerous on a site containing highly flammable fuel. The chosen solution also had to be easily installed without interfering with the existing complex pipe infrastructure, while providing stability to infrastructure site-wide.
