Checkatrade information for Southern Tank Services Ltd

Commercial Fuel Tank Services & Installations

At Southern Tank Services Ltd we have the industry experience to handle most types and sizes of storage tanks but have the flexibility to tailor our services to your exact requirements. We handle work from the smaller agricultural tanks to the largest commercial fuel installations, above ground and underground tanks. Our most frequent service is the oil tank replacement that consists of the following basic steps:oil tank

With oil tank replacement and new oil or diesel tank installations we carry out an on-site survey to discuss your requirements, give an 'Oil Storage Risk Assessment" and explain how to comply with the current oil storage regulations for your site. In most cases we will be able to provide a written quotation for the work proposed within two working days.

For commercial and industrial sites we'll agree and work to a site risk assessment and method statement and issue waste transfer notices and gas-free certificates where appropriate. All our installation and redundant tank removal work is carried out to industry best working practice and Environment Agency guidelines. With full insurance and the backup from our ISO9001 certified management team.
Other services include:

Our standard annual tank service includes a visual inspection of the tank and pipe work, clearing of the oil feed pipe with compressed air followed by leak pressure testing of the pipe, cleaning or replacing oil filters and a water dip test to see if any water is present in the oil which can be a costly experience. Water entering the fuel system will cause mechanical damage, repair bills and unexpected down time of appliances and machinery which is costly and inconvenient. For system critical fuel tanks such as back-up generators for data centres and hospitals, more frequent inspections and water tests are highly recommended.

All our work is carried out by our fully trained and OFTEC qualified engineers, so you can be sure of a high standard of knowledge and workmanship.

If you have any requirements or questions call us or use our contact page and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
