The Wolfin membrane system was used to waterproof the historical pillar water tank as part of the upgrade of the Enfield Marshalling Yards.
Wolfin GWSK was chosen as the waterproofing membrane for the critical aspect of relining the inside of the tank. The waterproofing work was executed by Andersal Engineering, a licensed Wolfin applicator.
The pillar water tank appeared on the proposed ILC (Intermodal Logistics Centre) site in 1918 to provide a watering station for steam powered locomotives. Comprising of a cylindrical concrete tank and various concrete mouldings mounted on top of a reinforced concrete pillar, the tank has a capacity to hold 18,000 litres of water. Research has identified that this is the only concrete pillar tank surviving from the NSW Government Railway System.
Wolfin membrane systems were found to be suitable for waterproofing this particular project as they offered UV stability and could be used in underwater applications.
