Our extensive services include

Tank inspection

All our tank services start with a site visit from our industry leading experts, to discuss your specific industrial tank cleaning requirements and inspect underground, ground level or above ground systems.

Tank cleaning

Tank cleaning can be required for a change of stored product, contamination, damage to the tank, decommissioning, transportation or a regular maintenance schedule to extend life. We handle capacities ranging from less than a thousand litres up to the tens of millions.

Challenges, such as confined spaces, are assessed and planned to ensure that the best, most cost-effective cleaning route is employed. We work man entry and non-man entry techniques – including gamma jetting, 360 cleaning heads and state of the art robotic systems. We can clean oil tanks, all alternative fuel tanks, foul tanks and those that store chemicals, water and any other liquid or gas.

Remote tank inspection and cleaning with AdlerView

Our market leading ATEX Zone 1 camera can be used to remotely inspect and clean fuel tanks both above and below ground, from a van positioned up to 50 metres away.

Why use AdlerView for tank inspection and cleaning?

  • Receive a full report and video
  • Reduce the costs associated with removing tank lids
  • Reduce time and risk to health and safety of traditional man-entry tank inspections
  • Faster, more accurate diagnosis of issues
Tank and line testing

Tank and line testing should accompany routine inspections to minimise the risk of tank failure, fuel contamination and potentially lethal leakage.

We check the structural integrity of tanks, which helps you stay compliant with EEMUA 159. EEMUA 159 is a general inspection, maintenance and repair guide for above ground vertical cylindrical steel storage tanks built to standards such as BS 2654, API 620 and API 650, DIN 4119-1 and -2, CODRES, G0801 and EN 14015.

Our pressure testing and non-destructive testing (NDT) quickly pinpoint corrosion, degradation, weakness, cracking and welding defects, before damage occurs. Following an analysis, we give full recommendations on work needed to resolve any problem, which we can also deliver.

Tank leak detection

We work with our partners Leighton O’Brien to deliver leak detection and minimise fuel losses.

Tank Decommissioning

We specialise in complete tank removal from both above and below ground, utilising hot and cold cutting equipment and company-owned excavation and craneage plant.

Exceptional care must be taken when decommissioning and removing potentially unstable tanks where the risk of pollution and even explosion is at its highest. Our specialist teams have many years’ experience of oil tank removal works.

Prior to removal, we provide environmentally sensitive tank purging and decommissioning services that comply with and exceed all relevant safety guidelines.

Bund services

A bund containment wall or barrier prevents spills if there is an accidental release or breach of the storage tank it surrounds. We offer bund construction, audit, lining and ongoing maintenance including cleaning for any storage tank type. More information can be found on our bund services page.
