LOADING TENT

Gas Storage Bergermeer is an independent gas storage facility located near Alkmaar in the Netherlands. It is developed by TAQA Energy and provides Northwest Europe of seasonal storage capacity. The gas storage re-uses a depleted gas reservoir, which has the ideal geological characteristics for gas storage and is strategically positioned in Europe’s gas network.
The Loading Tent at Bergermeer is located near the entrance of the facility. Its function is twofold; it protects the underlying Condensate Loading Station and forms the architectural frontline of the storage area.

The architectural design was made by Jinx Architects together with Tentech. It is a 650 m² Ferrari 1502 fabric with a TX30 coating. The fabric is supported by two main masts and four corner masts. Guy cables varying from Ø24mm to Ø40mm are used on all 6 masts. The main masts have a 18 meter height. Due to the location of the structure above a gas condensate station, the chance of a fire or explosion were taken in account and alternate load paths are incorporated in the design.

Textile architecture projects

The covering of a courtyard, canopies or stadiums… Tentech is part of the building team when textile and complex geometric shapes are used in new or existing architecture. Often we are responsible for a specific part of the design. In dialogue with the architect, contractor and client, we achieve an optimal contribution.

The design…

Our designs are characterized by sculptural quality and clean detailing, along with requirements of the location and usage of the structure. Combined they result into strong architectural concepts, in which aesthetics goes hand in hand with safe usage.

…and more

Our work doesn’t end with the realization of the technical design. We focus on all aspects of the design and production process that have an impact on textile architecture. Therefore, we are involved with all phases of the design process: from project definition, composition and preliminary design to the technical design, quotation, workshop drawings and maintenance. Supervising production, translating design into tailor made cutting patterns and connections, and assistance in the search and selection of the right market participants, are also part of our services. In our view, this is part of ‘modern craftsmanship’.
