Abstract (en)

A pallet (2) for supporting a tank (12) comprises: a platform (4) on which the bottom of the tank rests; and below this a support structure (6) extending peripherally around the edges of the platform (4). The platform (4) and the support structure (6) are connected by a plurality of distance blocks (5). Advantageously a stiffening cross member (22) that connects two opposite sides of the support structure (6) runs under the central area of the platform (4) and includes a strut (23) to support the platform (4) in said central area, in order to prevent the platform (4) from deforming under the weight of the tank and developing a concavity. <IMAGE>
