Water tank construction in Nepal

Has anyone used HDPE tanks in Community Water Projects in Nepal? We need a 10 000 litre tank and I was going to use ferrocement due to availability of materials, reduced transport costs, repair ability etc, but other project team members are keen to use an HDPE tank, I don't think HDPE tanks this size are readily available and am concerned about longevity?
