Tanks using Post-Tensioning with DYWIDAG Strand Tendons: Expansion of Isabela’s Plant in Brazil
The Isabela brand is one of the leading brands for biscuits in southern Brazil and forms part of the food manufacturer M. Dias Branco S.A. The Isabela plant in the town of Bento Gonçalves, close to Porto Alegre, in southern Brazil, produces biscuits for the entire country.
The expansion project includes 36 40m high new flour storage tanks. The tanks were horizontally post-tensioned using 45 unbonded 4 strand DYWIDAG Ring Tendons.
DSI Prepron supplied and installed the ring tendons and supported the jobsite with services related to the construction and post-tensioning of all tanks.
