Aptech Africa recently supplied, installed and commissioned a construction of a 100m3 galvanized steel tank erected on 15m galvanized steel frame structure in Ajoung Thok refugee camp in Pariang County, Ruweng Unity State-South Sudan, in a project funded by the International Refugee Council.
Over 55,000 refugees are expected to benefit from this installation as they have received a durable water storage system big enough to store enough water for all the them in the refugee camp for all their day-to-day activities. The galvanized steel was chosen for its enormous advantages including the durability, economic benefits, ease to clean, requirement of less maintenance, ease of inspection, hygienic benefits among many others. During the implementation of this Installation of the tank project, Aptech faced challenges that include flooding at the Manga port and mechanical failures during transportation thus creating delays in the transportation and delivery of the tank items and the 15m stand to the site due to heavy rains that made mobilization of materials from the port to the site in Ajoung Thok quite challenging. Even with these challenges, Aptech ensured to complete and deliver the work as soon as possible within the project delivery time.
