Tank of the Year
Since 2006, Tnemec has celebrated the innovative and creative uses of its coatings on water tanks with the Tank of the Year contest. Nominations for the annual contest are accepted from the beginning of the year until October, when the contest ends.
This year, for the first time ever, Tnemec let the people have their hand in picking the finalists for the contest and the resulting support was beyond expectation. All tanks - more than 200 nominations - were voted on by the public and, after more than ten thousand votes, the public narrowed the search down to twelve. Once the top twelve tanks were picked, a panel of water tank enthusiasts deliberated and chose one tank to be crowned the 2013 Tank of the Year.
This year’s Tank of the Year stands in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. Towering above the town, with a vivid, intricate wrap-around motif and a tag-line that reads, “Creativity Redefined,” this tank stands as the beginning of a reinvention of a proud local community. The spheroid-style tank’s design, consisting of multi-colored circles and spirals against a bright white tank, helps it stand out from the landscape and Tnemec coatings helped to make this stunning tank a monument of “creativity” for years to come.
