Comment | More

Voting has opened for Tnemec Company Inc.’s Tank of the Year contest, a yearly competition that features innovative uses of the company’s coatings on water tank projects.

People’s Choice voting, which will select the top tanks, is open until Oct. 20. From there, a panel of water tank enthusiasts will evaluate the top choice, along with 11 runners-up. The winner will be announced on Oct. 27.

Tank of the Year Nominees

The nominee in the lead as of Wednesday afternoon (Oct. 11) is known as The Peach, located in Gaffney, South Carolina. Originally built by Chicago Bridge and Iron Company in 1981, the water tank was commissioned by the Gaffney Board of Public Works.

The Peach was painted as recently as 2015, but was brought back to its original ripe peach color scheme in 2016, with Southern Corrosion working alongside the original artist, Peter Freudenberg. The project was completed in May 2017.

Other nominees currently in the top five slots include the Paxton, Illinois, tank, which features the blue and yellow of the town’s Swedish heritage, which also double as the high school colors; a water tower in St. Cloud, Minnesota, that depicts blue waves, which are symbolic of the tower’s function; a tower in Lisle, Illinois, that was painted to reflect the local Morton Arboretum; and a Destin, Florida, tower that reflects the coastal tranquility of Florida’s beaches.

Last Year’s Winner

The 2016 Tank of the Year award winner was a 500,000-gallon municipal water tank located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, painted with images of native birds and fish. This particular tank was originally a submission for the “Art in the Sky” public art contest. The design used an exterior coatings system from the company, which included the fluoropolymer finish Series 700 HydroFlon. The tank beat out 246 other entries.
