In 2019 we introduced a new rotating construction method for the construction of tanks: a welding technique where the tank rotates around the welding installation instead of the other way around. This lets the welder work faster: he does not have to move. The result? Lower costs and a shorter lead-time. Exolum was the first client to built their tank according to the new rotating method.
Arjen Schneiders (Managing Director Exolum Amsterdam): ‘The new method of rotating construction that Verwater introduced here has benefitted us in several ways. For example, lower costs and a shorter lead-time. That puts our new tank on the market sooner.’
