Novatank is perfect for rural areas with average to high rainfall that lack water storage infrastructure.

25,000L per pallet

Novatanks are not only lightweight but up to 5 tanks stack neatly onto a pallet enabling rapid water storage deployment wherever it's needed.

Used around the world

For 13 years Novatank has been manufacturing the world’s most functional collapsible tank that can contain 5,000 litres. The tanks have found their way to almost every corner of the world and are being used in every imaginable application: Disaster relief, farming, industrial, home use and military.

The tough design, using a thick, unique, truncated thermoplastic fabric liner and galvanised steel frame, the Novatank is truly a breakthrough in liquid storage design.

Years of testing and trials, the result is a product that exceeds expectations worldwide. In over a decade of production, Novatank has maintained a 100% record without a single quality-related warranty claim.

The tanks weigh 105kg and can be transported individually in light vehicles or stacked up to 2 high or 5 upright for efficient bulk transportation. 3 Pallets (15 tanks) go into a 20′ Container and 7 Pallets (35 tanks) go into a 40′ Container. See the diagram at the bottom of the page.

Patented worldwide, Novatank is the functional solution to a big, mobile water storage system when in use. Neat, compact and unobtrusive when not. Ready to be easily relocated and erected when demand calls.

Novatank is Australian designed, engineered, owned and exported all over the globe.
