Rapid Water Filling Station

  • Water Tanks - Modified shipping container - Water Filling Station - Hero

 

Containers First Water Tanks are built for rapid water delivery in dust suppression tankers on building sites, allowing fast on demand filling of tankers as required. The tank is 26,000 litres and used for on-site water storage and delivery. 

  • 1 x 20ft container with vents for workshop/storage – doubles as platform for tank
  • 1 x 20ft ISO tank container 
  • 26,000L Capacity
  • 8 Inch drainage pipe – detachable
  • Capable of being hooked up to other tanks to increase capacity of system
  • Fully drains in less than ½ an hour
  • 8 Inch butterfly Valve above lay-flat hose
  • Both units fully painted
  • Designed to be transported with standard trucks
  • Lay-flat hose to allow flow into water tanker trucks on site.
  • Twist-locks to ensue both units lock into each other.
  • All parts fit into standard 20ft container

Water Tanks – Instead of waiting many hours to fill the 8,000-10,000 litre water cart from the water main, the clever design of the Containers First Water Filling Station can provide rapid delivery of multiple loads in 8-10 minutes for each water cart, allowing for minimal downtime. The water carts simply drive underneath, release the valve and shortly thereafter are delivering water where it is required. The storage tank can be filling whenever the tank is not full.

The key to the water delivery system is the 8-inch pipe extending 2 metres from the side of the tank. The pipe is removable for transport via standard ISO shipping methods and then secured by a locking mechanism and a secondary chain that attaches from the tank to the pipe, which comprises a well-engineered solution for maximum protection and safety.

The System comprises 2 parts. The first being the water tank and the second being a 20ft shipping container that is used to raise the tank for top filling of tankers. The container below not only raises the Tank but also serves as an on-site storage unit and a workshop. The solid steel construction of the shipping container gives extra protection to the tools and equipment stored within. The large double doors allow for large and bulky items to be placed inside the container via forklift if required for safe storage or easy access in the workshop. The base shipping container is capable of having multiple tanks stacked on top and beside the system for increased capacity.

Float automation allows for the main water supply to fill the Containers First Water Filling Station continuously when not in use. When it reaches the safe fill level it then stops the mains flow automatically. Managing the amount of water during delivery and controls for filling of different sized containers is an option that is easily added if required.

Out-of-this-world design for Sydney Observatory

  • Shipping container building
  • Shipping container building
  • Shipping container building

 

When an amateur astronomer decides to use Shipping container building to reach for the stars and build his own personal observatory about 50km north of Sydney, he chose Containers First’s shipping container modification team to design, fabricate and install the unique structure.

  • Main Structure: 20-foot shipping container
  • Finished Dimensions: 9.2m X 4.8m X 2.9m (excluding dome)
  • 2.6m extension built from scratch to house telescope
  • All other additions fully fabricated at Containers First Workshop
  • Sliding glass door and windows, with flyscreens
  • Plumbed room ready for upgrade to wet room
  • Kitchenette
  • All rooms fully insulated
  • Full data cabling for telescope
  • Dimmer-controlled down lights throughout
  • Rolled angle to operate observatory dome
  • Squared round roofing for rainwater run-off
  • Interior mezzanine level access to telescope platform
  • Interior storage space
  • Full length veranda with staircase access
  • Lightweight roof truss design for transportability
  • Bull nose roofing and guttering fitted on-site
  • Main room floor carpeting

For this Shipping container building start with a standard 20-foot (6-metre) shipping container, Containers First added an elevated extension to house the telescope and dome, and fabricated many other modifications to create a spacious and comfortable observatory. 

The star-gazing structure includes windows, dimmable lighting and a sliding glass door, a large workstation with cabinetry, a kitchenette, storage, interior access to the elevated motorised telescope room, and a wrap-around exterior deck complete with a rainwater gutter system and stylishly finished with bullnose roofing.

To house the precision optical equipment, the Containers First Workshop’s fabrication had to be equally precise for the hinged dome to rotate properly.

Containers First also wired the observatory for electrical power and data, and included a fully plumbed room ready for future use. The observatory is also fully insulated from floor to ceiling to ensure comfort all year round.

While Containers First were content with the design and manufacture of this amazing observatory their expertise was truly exposed when they coordinated the delivery and installation of the observatory. Requiring custom fabricated supports to perch the containers on the side of a hill, specialised transport for the 40km journey to the site and lifting equipment all of which needed to fit through a gap with only millimetres to spare. The installation was precise, on time and under budget.

Our astronomer couldn’t be happier with the observatory and is counting his lucky stars he chose Containers First and the “freedom” a modular shipping container design provided him. Containers First is equally thrilled with their first-ever observatory design/build and rates it as one of the Sydney company’s stellar achievements in custom shipping container modifications.

When MINI wanted a Modified Shipping Container to hit the road in Australia to showcase its latest Coupe and Roadster models, the British automaker put Containers First in the driver’s seat to economically design, build and transport its display and cars across five states. 

Working under a tight deadline and budget, Containers First transformed a used, 20-foot container into a sleek, mobile promotion that would attract crowds – whilst protecting its precious cargo on the long road trip.

The X-week Australian leg of the “Another Day, Another Adventure” international campaign was a turbocharged success for MINI, thanks in part to the top-quality modifications and expert logistics provided by Containers First.
