Water Tanks


Hydra Arc’s bulk water storage solution has changed the lives of communities and serves as a beacon of hope for so many people. The project entailed design, fabrication, transport and installation of a number of water tanks in densely populated ‘water scarce’ rural areas. The water tanks were manufactured at its Sky Hill Heavy Engineering facility in Secunda. The state-of-the art facility has 75,000m² workshops under roof consisting of machinery and equipment unique to Africa. Learners and qualified artisans from its adjacent Mshiniwami Artisan Academy manned the project. Hydra Arc is rooted in Mpumalanga and is a proudly South African company. Hydra Arc remains committed to Public-Private Partnerships to uplift the lives of underprivileged communities.
