Spantech won the contract to build 34 Spantech 23-metre explosives storehouses (ESH) after carrying out successful and extensive full scale trials primarily aimed to identify the most effective solution for the Myambat project.
Construction was completed in 12 months, much faster than expected, and for significantly less than the Australian Department of Defence’s original budget estimate.
Each Spantech 23-metre ESH was designed to be licensed to store up to 75,000 kg NEQ of HD 1.1 at D3 and D4 NATO inter magazine safety distances. Each building can nominally store up to 380 pallets.
