Oil Tank Decommissioning
Once your oil tank comes to an end of its life or if you are looking to replace it or change your heating system to gas or electric, the old tank will have to be decommissioned. We are specialists in commercial oil tank decommissioning and can take care of your oil tank removal from start to finish. Our team would follow through the process below to ensure safe tank decommissioning.
Content analysis and disposal of old fuel
Firstly the contents of the tank need to be analysed by taking a sample of the liquid stored in the tank. Depending on the type and condition of the fuel stored in the tank, our experienced team will take care of the disposal of the liquid in a safe manner adhering to environmental regulations. If the fuel is in good condition, it can be filtered and transferred to a new tank. During the decommissioning process the liquid can be stored in one of our holding tanks on site to ensure smooth and fast turnover process.
Fuel Tank Cleaning and Decontamination
In some cases the tank needing decommissioning may appear empty. It is important to note that it is still possible for some oil or other hazardous materials to still be present inside. This can create a safety risk for your site. Once all content is removed our engineers will clean the tank thoroughly to ensure there are no leftovers of any hazardous materials inside. Only then the tank can be manipulated further to complete the decommissioning process.
Fuel Tank Removal or Filling
Depending on the state and location of your oil tank, there are several ways it can be decommissioned. Our expert team will talk you through your options before work commences. These are usually – removing the tank completely if it’s in an accessible location, filling it with concrete and foam or cleaning the tank and leaving it where it is.
Further to that, if the most suitable method is complete removal of the fuel tank then our team will also look into the best options to remove the pipework, if necessary.
