Plasticon Composites developed their own on-site production technology. Plasticon Composites can produce storage tanks with three production methods:
To guarantee our clients an economical advantage for projects that require a wide variety of (large diameter), in 2015, storage tanks Plasticon Composites brought a new innovation to market maturity, the « variable mould ».
Rather than manufacturing a static steel form or mold for each different diameter as has been standard over the past several decades, Plasticon Composites now uses two variable molds (7-12.5 and 12 – 20 meters) with carbon fiber plates on the outside. In this way, we are no longer required to make a new investment for each different diameter of tanks. The variable molds are adjusted step-less to a new diameter within a few hours.
The major advantage of the Plasticon Composites production method for Fiberglass storage tanks in comparison with the conventional materials is also the short construction period. The construction time of two fiberglass tanks of 2,000 m3 is only 3 months, whereas conventional material builders require 5 to 6 months. The shorter presence on site results in less disturbance of the contractor’s schedule and saves costs and space.

The production time of this type of project would be: two months after mobilization of the Plasticon Composites mobile facility at site. Depending on the diameter, wall construction, heights we can give an indication of the time. In case you do not have a specific tank design, feel free to send us a description of the medium, process, temperature and conditions. Together we can design a safe and reliable solution for your plant, feel free to request an indication for your plant.
It only takes one week of mobilization and one week of de-mobilization (time of transport from the storage to site depends on the location of the site). All equipment and raw materials can be transported in ISO Containers.
Plasticon Composites offers the manufacturing and assembling of FFFT anywhere in the world where an industrial site is (being) build. Even in extreme climates or rugged terrains. Plasticon Composites specially offers seismc designed storage tanks. We apply the ASCE 7-10 for the seismic design of the FRP storage tanks.
Contact us to request for information at your location!
Depending on the type of medium, Plasticon Composites' FRP tanks can be designed for an operational temperature of 120° Celsius. Feel free to send us the specifications of the medium you handle and/or your processes.

Yes, we executed several succesful FFFT projects the past few years. The FFFT innovation is designed to operate in difficult environments and particularly to be able to manufacture complete tank farms (tanks varying in diameter) within a short time for low cost. We have done several projects in in
For decades, Plasticon Composites already executed projects with the On Site Winding Machine (OSWM) at a variety of plants around the globe for over decades, mainly manufacturing and assembling FRP Ducts or FRP Chimneys (read more information on the Plasticon Composites corporate website). Design, manufacturing, assembly and installation of FRP and Dual Laminate process- or storage tanks is our core competence.
All types of chemical fluids can be stored in FRP tanks, as FRP contains excellent corrosion resistant properties. Read on this page the list of mediums you can store in Field Fabricated Fiberglass Tanks and feel free to contact us for questions.
Not only do we provide FFFT for Chemical and Mining industries, FFFT is very suitable for the Food Industry as well. Plasticon Composites manufactures FRP tanks in compliance with different standards from the food industry. Oils in particular can be stored in FRP storage tanks, as the inner wall of a Plasticon Compoasites storage tank is 100% seamless, making it easy to clean and providing an optimum flow of the medium. High hygiene standards are met using FRP products. Contact our team to see reference projects for the food industry.
