Franklin Hodge have recently been awarded a large F.M. approved tank project from J.N.Bentley's for installation at the Proctor and Gamble site in Manchester.
Franklin Hodge did the original tank at Proctor and Gamble in 2008 and the current project is a duplicate tank.
The tank is Factory Mutual approved and measures 21.39m diameter x 7.855m high with an effective capacity of 2692m3.
The capacity is outside of Franklin Hodge's blanket approval range and a one off approval was achieved for this capacity with the original tank in 2008.
A requirement for an additional tank was due to Proctor and Gamble's policy of having a duplicate supply on all sites valued in excess of £110 million.
