Commercial Oil Tank Cleaning and Fuel Tank Cleaning
Our commercial oil tank cleaning and fuel tank cleaning services are on hand to assist in a wide variety of situations, from cleaning a tank ready for disposal or transport, through to cleaning a tank following a contamination issue. From the moment you make your initial enquiry, you will speak directly to an experienced oil tank cleaning operative who will be able to answer your questions, prior to issuing you with a quote. From there, that same team member will organise your oil tank cleaning quotation, either through your information or a site visit, and then begin to formulate a safe system of work. We work very closely with our clients to ensure that not only do we provide them with a safe and cost effective service for all fuel tank cleaning and oil tank cleaning services, but also to help them in meeting their environmental obligations, once fuel and oil waste leaves their site.
Commercial Oil Tank Cleaning and Fuel Tank Cleaning Procedures
When conducting oil tank cleaning on an above ground tank, the priority for us is to gain safe access and egress from the tank. Depending on the desired outcome for the tank, this can be achieved in a number of ways. If the fuel or oil tank is to be disposed of, we can use cold cutting techniques to cut a large enough access hole into the side of the tank to allow the tank cleaner to walk in and out. If the tank needs to be put back into service, we would require an access hatch (usually found on top) and sufficient space in order to deploy a tripod rescue system. If the tank is cylindrical, we are able to install a scaffold platform above the tank in order to work safely. All of this information would be gathered by our operatives during your initial enquiry to allow us to immediately provide you with an accurate quotation and a safe system of works.
