Cyntech has been the premiere tank lifting contractor in Canada for the past 20 years. Our professional engineers use the most innovative technologies available for tank lifting and relocation to ensure your project is executed in the safest and most cost-efficient manner.

Innovative techniques

We will analyze your situation, recommend the appropriate remedial action, and execute the required repair work.

We use a unique airbag lifting system to elevate the tank from its base to allow for remedial action. Our system offers tremendous advantages over conventional hydraulic jacking methods:

  • Tank integrity is maintained
  • No concrete support system required
  • No welding on the tank shell

Our automated welding system technological solutions will reduce the time and labor efforts required for your shell, floor and roof repairs and replacements. Our automated systems not only weld but can precisely torch cut to project requirements.

Significant cost savings can be realized by relocating existing tanks rather than constructing new ones. Our trained and experienced crews can provide relocation services over land or navigable waterways.

Relocation can be:

  • Temporary, to allow for groundwork to be executed without working under the tank
  • To move tank to new pad within berm
  • To move tank to new location within tank farm
  • To move tank to a completely new site

A combination of our certified and tested expert welders and equipment will ensure that the job is done accurately and in less time.
