Resorts World Bimini is a 750-acre premier luxury beachfront resort that spans nearly half the island of Bimini. The resort boasts the largest marina complex in the Bahamas and is the center of the sports fishing capital of the world. The resort is located on the westernmost island of the Bahamas, 50 miles from Florida, directly affected by cyclonic weather.
Richard Dunfield of Pioneer Water Tanks America worked with the resort and engineers to specify a Cyclonic XLE 10/05 model. The Industratex® 420 liner utilized in the tank is NSF/ANSI Standard 61 certified. The Industratex® 420 liner is secured to the tank wall at multiple points to provide optimal support.
The cyclonic roof structure engineering is ready to withstand high winds caused by hurricanes. The proprietary cyclonic roof of Pioneer Water Tanks is designed with roof trusses of greater depth and closer spacing to withstand higher wind velocities expected in Cyclonic Regions C and D.
The COLORBOND® finish helps to protect the tank from the harsh seawater environment. The Pioneer Water Tank was opted in Surfmist® COLORBOND® Ultra steel to compliment the aesthetic of the white sandy beaches and turquoise waters.
The project acts as a fire suppression water tank that feeds the pump for a sprinkler system servicing a warehouse. The warehouse will house future engineering offices at the resort. Ben Pedraza with Pioneer Water Tanks America, Joe Carter with JC Construction, and Orville with local construction provided the installation. The clients are satisfied with the completed Pioneer Water Tank and are impressed with the efficient install.
