A U.S. company that contributed to the construction of a sizable aquarium in Berlin has announced that it will send a team to look into the tank’s rupture, which brought a tsunami of debris, water and tropical fish rushing through the hotel lobby where it was housed and onto the street outside.
According to Reynolds Polymer Technology, who claims to have created and installed the AquaDom tank’s cylinder component 20 years ago, “at this moment, it is too early to establish the elements or variables that would produce such a failure.”
Police have stated that they did not discover any proof of criminal activity, only the reason for the stunning collapse that occurred just before 6 a.m.
It’s unknown why two people were mildly harmed on Friday.
On Friday, Iris Spranger, the top security official in Berlin, stated that “initial indications point to material fatigue.”
On Friday night, officials said that the hotel’s structure had been determined to be secure.
According to the local authorities, only “a few fish at the bottom of the tank” were salvaged out of the 1,500 fish inside during the break.
The evacuation of 400 to 500 essentially small fish from a different set of aquariums stored beneath the hotel lobby to other tanks in a new nearby aquarium took place.
In 2020, the AquaDom aquarium underwent modernization after opening in December 2003.
