Steel tank erection according to the Bygging-Uddemann method
One of our most appreciated innovations on the world market is the Bygging-Uddemann steel tank erection set-up. The steel tank erection set-up is a very cost-efficient way of constructing large-volume cisterns and has been developed from our knowledge of controlled heavy lifting technique with hydraulic jacks.
The Bygging-Uddemann method was introduced at the end of the 1950s to rationalize the erection of steel cisterns for various storage purposes. The method is used for cisterns of various design of all sizes.The erection and welding work is carried out entirely on the ground. This gives a high degree of safety and precision in the workmanship and facilitates the inspections required.
All work takes place under adequate protection and safety for the workmen. Most of the welding work is carried out inside the cistern, independently of the weather conditions. The method reduces construction time.
Steel tank erection and repair
Replacing a cistern base or foundation repairs. The base of an old cistern may have to be replaced. In this case, jacking units are erected externally.

The steel tank construction method, like Bygging-Uddemann’s other systems, has been in use all over the world for many years.
