Oil Tank decommissioning, removal and recycling is being requested as our clients are finding alternative fuel to petrol, kerosene, gasoil and diesel oil. Our specialists engineers are fully trained and qualified in oil and fuel tank removal and recycle both above ground and underground tanks. Our experienced teams of engineers are confined spaced trained for working in basements, cellars and rooms inside buildings and qualified to decommission and remove redundant oil storage tanks. We issue 'Waste Transfer Notice' and 'Gas Free Certificates' for all the work we carry out.
Where possible the simplest method is to clean and de-gas the tank and remove it whole, using a crane mounted on our lorry for off-site recycling. Where access is limited and cutting the tank on site is the only option, our confined space trained engineers use a nibbler and reciprocating saw for cold cutting steel tanks and the reciprocating saw for cutting plastic tanks.
When commercial fuel and oil tanks need removing, before we take out the tank, we clean and de-gas the tank, test and issue a gas free certificate. After the fuel tank cleaning process the tank is ready for removal from the site either whole with crane assisted haulage or our team of engineers will use a combination of hot cutting with a gas torch or cold cutting with industrial steel nibblers and reciprocating saws. Either way, we will issue a waste transfer notice for the waste material and any fuel oil removed as part of the cleaning and gas freeing process.
Our usual oil and fuel tank removal procedure after initial contact is as follows.
