Toro Equipment participates, together with other companies; in the research project W-Tank. The project focuses in develop new storage tanks of large capacity based in plates of a novel material with advance properties.
‘The Tanks will be produced with a resin material reinforced with certain loads of glass fibre, size nanometer, to modify the mechanical properties of the plates’. ‘With this material can build higher volumes of tanks’ explain José Fermoso, researcher of the Environment Division of Cartif.
After five months of project, they have proven that it could reach 2,000 m3 and give new features to the W-Tank.
The project was funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
