This project was located on the tropical island of Saipan. Saipan is the principal island and commercial center of the Northern Mariana Islands. It is about 12.5 miles long, 5.5 miles wide, and has a total land area of 46.5 square miles which is about the size of San Francisco. Saipan has 14 miles of beach and a large part of the island is public land. Saipan is 120 miles north of Guam.

This project consisted of a Fusion tank and Temcor dome. We sent our lead tank superintendent to Saipan to help GPPC, a local Saipan general contractor, build the half million gallon Glass-Fused-to-Steel tank. Our lead supervisor oversaw the complete tank and dome installation.
