Australian Floriculture industry

Hot water storage tanks for the Australian Floriculture industry. 

The cut flower market has an insatiable demand to pristine blooms in peak condition. To supply this demand, market growers have to arrange near perfect growing conditions. 

One of these conditions is a constant temperature inside the glass houses. With acres of growing space under glass this is a huge challenge. Leading Victorian growers “Boon Roses” and “Piovillico flowers” have both commissioned Austank to build 180,000 litre insulated tanks to supply constant hot water. 

These tanks were designed and built by Austank in their Melbourne facility and the transported by road to the nurseries and installed. 

The single skin tanks were wrapped in 150mm of Rockwool insulation and encased in an  external skin of corrugated steel.
