CASHMAN | Preload Cryogenics (CPC), part of the Preload International family of companies, has been pioneering the research, development, design, and construction of prestressed, precast, sliding base concrete tanks for over half a century. Since 1952, Preload has designed and constructed more than two-dozen low temperature and cryogenic storage tanks and many more dike walls for the storage of LNG, LPG, LOX, and Ammonia, Preload has been recognized as the forerunner in the engineering and construction of circular prestressed concrete structures.
Many of the storage challenges our customers present to us today are challenges we have conquered throughout our many years in business. Preload first developed the technology/methodology and is the only company to have successfully designed and constructed prestressed concrete tanks for use as primary containment
Interest and investment in cryogenic tanks have been increasing in the past decade. As energy prices rise, the need for safe, reliable storage is increasing. CPC’s prestressed concrete tanks provide the durability, flexibility, and safety to store today’s refrigerated and cryogenic liquids, such as LNG, liquid oxygen, liquefied petroleum gas, ethylene, ammonia, and other natural gas liquids (NGLs), for a wide range of storage volumes— from 5,000 to 300,000 cubic meters (m3).
