The Mark III containment system is an efficient, high performance membrane containment system for the transportation and storage of liquefied gas. It combines:
– The well-known waffled, stainless steel primary barrier, 0.047 inch (1.2 mm) thick used in all the carriers and storage tanks already delivered or under construction.
– A load-bearing insulation system consisting of a bonded sandwich of plywood and rigid polyurethane foam in corporating an integral secondary barrier of aluminium fibreglass cloth composite.

The development of this containment system has benefitted from Technigaz' 15 years of experience in the field of membrane containment systems for liquefied gas storage and transportation. The Technigaz record is reflected in the trouble-free construction and operation of the land storage tanks
