Storage tanks, bullets & spheres

Building storage tanks is our business

Ellimetal fabricates storage tanks in our own workshop or on site.  We are also specialised in building bullets. Ellimetal hold extensive references for specialised fabricated storage tanks which include site-assembled propene-spheres.

We build storage tanks up to 9000mm diameter in our own shop.  Larger tanks are fabricated and installed on the project site, using innovative construction techniques.


Floating- or fixed-roof, aluminium domes, equipped with heating coils or agitators, painted, coated or rubber-lined or insulated: each design meets the needs and specifications of the client.


We build storage bullets (“cigars”) with a capacity of 3500m3 in-house that can be delivered in one piece to the construction site.  Once on-site, the bullets can be mounded for liquid gas storage in a sand bed or placed on fixed saddles.


We erect propene-spheres on site and create a mounting concept together with the customer.


Our coating systems are applied in-house and come with outstanding warranties.

At our premises, equipment can be PTFE lined, hot sprayed, or coated in a fully-controlled environment according to the client’s specifications.
