Omni Tanker sets sail
Award-winning Australian manufacturer Omni Tanker Holdings, which produces innovative carbon fibre tank containers, is expanding its business to meet international shipping demand, drawing on a $4 million equity investment from the Innovation Fund. Omni Tanker’s carbon fibre tank containers are six times the strength of steel tankers, and more than 35 per cent lighter. They can transport a wide range of corrosive liquids and high purity chemicals. The combination of these light weight and chemical resistant properties means transporting the tankers requires less energy and produces lower emissions. Omni Tanker’s core business is based on a patented technology invented by the late William (Bill) Rodgers.
