Underground Fuel Tank Removal Services
Our underground fuel tank removal services can look after the entire process, giving you peace of mind that the job is being handled correctly. Upon receipt of a purchase order, the process for your underground fuel tank removal 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 documentation for approval.
As mentioned in our underground fuel tank cleaning section, we have the ability to ensure your fuel tanks are completely clean and gas free, prior to any underground fuel tank removal taking place.
If your underground tanks are being excavated, we use a network of accredited machine operators to excavate the tanks, whilst they remain under a gas free certificate and our direct supervision. We operate a safe excavation policy when removing underground tanks, with no digging being undertaken until all underground services have been identified and isolated if required.
We also have the ability to carry out an underground fuel tank removal from hard to reach places, or when sites have been built on after the tanks were installed. Our cutting methods allow underground fuel tanks to be removed in pieces, vastly reducing the size of the excavation required.
Safety is paramount on our sites, we always ensure the area is securely fenced to prevent any unauthorised entry. Although underground fuel tank removal can be intrusive, we will always work tirelessly to ensure the impact on our client is minimal.
Although we don’t directly get involved in soil remediation, we have a close relationship with a number of remediation specialists who can advise on soil testing and contamination removal following the excavation of a fuel or oil tank.
Additional Underground Fuel Tank Decommissioning Services.
Our additional underground fuel tank decommissioning services can help when removal of your tanks is not an option. Concrete and foam filling options are both available, in your initial enquiry, we can discuss all options to decide on the method that suits you best.
For your peace of mind, we are members of both the Petroleum Equipment Installers and Maintenance Federation (PEIMF), along with The Association for Petroleum and Explosives Administration (APEA). All of our forecourt work is subject to approval and supervision from local Petroleum Licensing Authorities.
