Why bunded fuel tanks?
Many fuel storage tanks require oil bunds to prevent pollution. Under the Oil Storage Regulations, a qualifying bunded fuel tank should be contained within bunding totalling no less than 110% of the storage tanks full capacity.
Most commercial or industrial sites and institutes should bund any fuel storage tank exceeding 200 litres. In general, building regulations state that new or replacement tanks exceeding 2,500 litres must be bunded.
Apart from legislation, we estimate that up to 80% of tank replacement and bund renewal costs can be saved by tank bunding and lining. Our bund linings are suitable for a vast range of applications and are currently used in the Electrical Utilities, Power Generation, Manufacturing, Marine, Forecourts and Water industries.
