Underground Fuel Tank Cleaning Services – Petrol Tank Cleaning & Diesel Tank Cleaning.
Our underground fuel tank cleaning services range from pro-active cleaning to prevent future contamination issues or in preparation for decommissioning, through to re-active cleaning following an incident with your tank. The areas generally covered by this service are diesel tank cleaning and petrol tank cleaning.
Depending on the reason for having your fuel tank cleaned, we can produce samples of the waste found in the tank, accompanied by a thorough visual inspection with photographic evidence and a written report if required. If needed your fuel tank can then be fully pressure tested and certified in order to meet legislative obligations.
If your underground petrol tank or diesel tank requires cleaning, removing, concrete filling or foam filling, we can cover the entire process from start to finish. An initial quotation can be obtained easily with the following information:
- The size and number of diesel tanks or petrol tanks to be cleaned.
- The last held grade of each tank and current liquid contents.
- A picture of each tank chamber.
- The location of the tanks within the UK.
Once a guideline quotation has been issued, we can then arrange for one of our engineers to visit your site if required. Here they will begin discussing the various options available to us for the safe cleaning of your fuel or oil tank, with the aim of producing a safe system of work.
Underground Fuel Tank Cleaning Process
Upon receipt of an order, the process for your underground tank cleaning work will be looked after by our own team. We will contact your local petroleum licensing authority directly (if working with petrol), to inform them of the proposed work and to submit the relevant health and safety paperwork for approval.
Although they appear similar, there are fundamental differences between diesel tank cleaning and petrol tank cleaning, both of which require their own safe system of work. Our highly experienced in house operatives use specialist equipment to safely open, empty and clean underground petrol tanks and diesel tanks, leaving them safe to either re-commission or dispose of. We do not sub contract any of our tank cleaning operations, our own operatives will be on site from the beginning of the job until the end.
