Tank of the Year Voting Opens

Monday, October 8, 2018

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. 19. 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. 26.

Tank of the Year Nominees

“Approximately 270 water tanks were nominated for this year’s competition, which recognizes the most impressive coatings projects in the water tank industry,” said Doug Hansen, Director of the Water Tank Market for Tnemec. “Since the first Tank of the Year was announced in 2006, more than 2,000 water tanks have been nominated from across the U.S. and Canada.”

One of this year's nominees is a Winston-Salem, North Carolina, water tank depicting a 50-foot-tall otter. The mural encompasses 15,000 square feet, and is visible to around 25,000 drivers a day.

Once online voting is over, the water tank with the most votes will be named People’s Choice, and automatically entered as a finalist for the 2018 Tank of the Year title.

Last Year’s Winner

An elevated water tank in Destin, Florida, won Tank of the Year in 2017. The Destin tank, which depicts a beach scene in keeping with the resort town’s coastal vibe, was painted with a Tnemec fluoropolymer product. Blocks from the coast, the illustration features two beach chairs facing the ocean.

Winners are chosen based on a number of criteria, including artistic merit, significance to the community and challenges encountered on the project.
