Our above-ground, generator-critical fuel storage tank is a tank within a tank. The outer tank protects the inner tank, and in the unlikely event of the inner tank failing, it will contain any spillage.
The liquid is stored in the primary or inner tank and the outer tank forms the required bund with a capacity for 110% of the primary tank’s capacity. This tank is suitable for the storage of heating oil, kerosene, diesel, waste oils and many other liquids.
They are manufactured to the highest standards and conform to BS799 PT5 type J. The thickness of the steel used varies with tank size and all tanks are pressure tested before they leave our workshop. They are supplied with one coat primer and one topcoat, which is normally green in colour as standard. It is possible, however, to request any colour you prefer at no extra cost.
These tanks are also very good at deterring the would-be opportunist in oil theft which is very much on the rise currently.
