Underground fuel storage tanks can be decommission by several methods, traditionally, this was achieved by cleaning the tank to a gas free state, then poring concrete in to the underground tank for a permanent solution. Water filling is often used a temporary method, but this can cause problems with accelerated corrosion and any remaining hydrocarbons forming an environmentally hazardous sludge that will require expensive treatment to make safe. An alternative is to inject a foam resin in to the tank, which has may advantages.
Decommissioning underground fuel storage tanks with RG22 resin foam is the most cost effective and environmentally preferred method with the following advantages:
We offer a complete underground tank decommissioning service, from initial site visit, preparing method statement and risk assessments, through to completing the work, certifying the tanks are safe and liaising with the relevant petroleum authority to update any required records.
