Planned preventive maintenance

Ensure assets comply with relevant industry standards and good practice guidance.

We help organisations ensure their assets remain compliant by establishing a planned preventive maintenance (PPM) regime so that you can extend the lifespan of your assets and ensure you have up-to-date inspection and maintenance documentation available on request in the event of a pollution incident.

A planned preventive maintenance contract means that maintenance tasks are scheduled to take place regularly, and then documented to provide proof of diligence in the event of an incident.

The idea is to prevent problems before they occur and reduce the long-term cost of the asset.

Reactive maintenance can solve the problem in the short term, but it makes financial planning difficult, often has higher asset lifecycle costs, and could attract more robust regulatory enforcement action and cause more damage and injury in the event of an incident.

Planned preventive maintenance reduces the overall cost of ownership, helps maintain compliance with relevant standards and good practice guidance. It can also extend asset lifespan, increase safety on site, reduce downtime and the likelihood of environmental damage and negative publicity.

  • In most instances assets can remain operational while maintenance takes place.
  • Work is planned in so you can manage your budget and you don’t need to remember when your next inspection is due.
  • A correctly documented PPM schedule can help partners demonstrate they have taken all reasonably practicable measures to mitigate the risk of a pollution incident.
  • A correctly managed asset greatly reduces your environmental risk.

Tank cleaning and maintenance

We clean and purge all types of storage tanks in a variety of sectors, from retail forecourts, transport, major refineries, and military estates with underground, ground-level, or above-ground systems.

We employ man-entry and non-man-entry techniques to remove and dispose of any condensation, water, or sludge in your tank.

Manual and automated cleaning options are available, including powerful remote-controlled mechanical washers that comply with current legislation for oil, alternative fuel, and foul tanks, and storage containers for chemicals, water, and any other liquid or gas.

Separator maintenance

We help site operators that use, store, process, or re-fuel light liquids to remain compliant with current legislation, standards, and good practice, by inspecting, maintaining, and repairing your separators and alarms. This can significantly reduce the risk of an environmental incident, regulatory fines, operational downtime, and reputation damage.

Our experts will ensure you have full-service records in line with BS EN 858-2:2003, compliant with all inspection and audit requirements.
