H.I.R Technical Services has physically worked on the ground at sites from Nome, AK to Saudi Arabia. From Edmonton to Guatemala. We know tanks and we offer fast, accurate and reasonably priced consulting services.

New API 650 tanks, we can help.

New AWWA water tanks, we can help.

New Fiberglass tanks, we can help.

Any existing aboveground tank, we can help.


We have witnessed tank failures ranging from brittle fracture failure to extreme corrosion, leaking seams to the tops being blown off.


We could go on but we won't. The purpose of this site is just to let you know that help is available and if you would like to start the conversation, please feel free to call 814-706-7514.
