When storing fuel on your premises, you have a legal obligation to keep the storage tank and dispensing equipment maintained with a fuel tank service. We can check that your installation is compliant with the Environment Agency, DEFRA guidelines and current building regulations. This ensures you are protecting your staff, the public and the environment, and your fuel stock.
At Tank Services, we offer a complete lifecycle service portfolio from supply and installation, servicing, maintenance and ongoing support through to decommissioning and tank removals.
Our fuel tank service and site audit include compliance checks, proactive inspection and maintenance, backed up by a comprehensive photographic report to highlight any issues requiring attention. This document is also your evidence that your fuel storage facility has been inspected by a trained and qualified engineer and ensures your critical fuel supply will support your business needs.
Our tank service starts with an inspection and report by our OFTEC qualified engineers.
As an option, we also offer a complete refresh service to restore your tank and fuel back to an ‘as new’ standard. This uses advanced fuel polishing techniques and man entry confined space tank cleaning. Whilst the tank is empty we can also test the tank with an NDT ultrasound probe to measure the material thickness at multiple points to highlight any corrosion or thinning of the tank.
We provide a complete NDT tank test and inspection to EEMUA 159 and pipeline inspection to API570 standards. We have a fully qualified experienced partner to fulfill this in-depth tank test and inspection. Because we work so closely, we can offer a complete package for vertical storage tank reports and inspections for hazardous liquid storage and plant operations.
We start with a visual inspection of all equipment.
We can carry out an audit and site safety assessment to ensure you’re maintaining your facility and complying with current legislation. This will also include checking, reporting and a clear action plan if required.
Include identifying the product type (diesel, gas-oil, petrol, kerosene etc.), correct health and safety signage, safe working tank capacity and therefore avoiding an overfill.
When we assess the location of the tank we’ll check for potential problems with the location of the installation with regard to impact protection, building regulation and fire risks.
Are the tank and dispensing equipment secure against unauthorised use and locked when not in use?
In the event a driver drives off with the nozzle still in the vehicle. this hardware automatically closes the hose end – it does happen!
Often the panel may be damaged and not working correctly.
Has the electric circuit been tested by a qualified electrician?
Is this clear and quick to find and operated to isolate the power to the fuel tank and associated equipment?
Do you know where a potential fuel leak could end up? You need a clear drainage plan to ensure you understand the impact on the environment.
Some basic staff training may be required to ensure that if the worst happens, you know how to handle the situation correctly.
Do you know where your fuel is going? A simple spreadsheet recording fuel out and deliveries in will let you see if fuel is being removed in an unrecorded way. It may also show any leaks from the tank or pipework.
Nominate an appointed person to take responsibility for regular site checks, including ensuring the tank and refuelling area is kept clean, clear and tidy. Preparing a checklist will make it quicker to identify problems and find a solution. We can help with this.
