Imagine that it’s 50 degrees below zero and there’s an oil spill that needs to be contained. It’s no surprise that the right equipment is critical to success. Enter FASTANK® Arctic, a liquid storage container designed specifically for low arctic conditions.

Available from Fast Engineering Ltd., manufacturer of FASTANK portable containment systems, the storage container sets up in five minutes by one person without tools. Available in two sizes to hold up to 1,800 gallons or 2,400 gallons, it can be used for applications, including oil spill cleanup, decontamination pools, effluent containment, water storage and treatment, firefighting water dumps and other needs.

FASTANK Arctic can withstand temperatures between -58 to 176 degrees (F). The container is a ripstop acrylic and vinyl-coated polyester fabric manufactured to the ISO 9001:2008 quality standard. Pressure die-cast aluminum fittings offer superior durability in subzero climates. Corrosion-resistant and easy to transport, it has a long storage life, and a special EzeeBOX for storage is included.
