Below ground fuel tanks

Below ground double skinned storage tanks supplied by the company are constructed to BS EN 12285-1 from steel approved to BS799.  Below ground double skinned petrol tanks are also suitable for storing diesel, gas oil, and other associated oil products.

Below ground fuel storage tanks are available to suit a wide range of applications and can be supplied with storage capacity from as little as 2000 litres up to in excess of 100,000 litres.  Site works to accommodate a below ground tank are generally more complicated than those required for above ground tanks and should only be carried out by an experienced and specialised contractor such as TSG, who is able to offer a complete supply and installation service for below ground petrol and diesel tanks.

Double skinned below ground petrol and diesel tanks are constantly monitored for leaks by filling the space between the inner and outer skins (the interstitial space) with an inhibiting fluid, the level of which is continuously monitored by placing a probe in a header tank. Any loss of the inhibiting fluid will be sensed by the electronic probe and cause an audible alarm to sound or send a message to any integrated leak detection system that will complement the overall installation.

As part of the installation service provided by TSG, we can also supply and install all of the necessary pipework from the underground tank. This pipework includes, fill pipes, vent pipes and any associated vapour recovery connections, pump suction, or pressure pipework.

Above ground fuel tanks

Above ground diesel storage tanks are available to suit a wide range of applications and can be supplied with storage capacity from as little as 2000 litres up to in excess of 100,000 litres.  Above ground tanks are delivered to site by road and offloaded and positioned in their final location using a mobile crane. Site works to accommodate an above ground tank are normally very straightforward, the only requirement generally being a suitable level concrete base to support the tank, and a correctly rated electrical supply to provide power to any diesel or gas oil pump and associated fuel management or gauging system which may form part of the fuel installation.  TSG is able to carry out this service.

Above ground tanks can be supplied as a single vessel or can be compartmented to contain other products such as diesel, gas oil, lubrication oil, hydraulic oil, waste oil and many other oil products.

Above ground storage tanks can also be supplied complete with security cabinets to accommodate equipment such as diesel and gas oil pumps, fuel management systems, tank gauges and other associated control equipment. Overfill prevention devices and high and low-level warning alarms are available, either as stand-alone units or as part of a fully integrated leak detection system.

All pipework connections to the above ground storage tank system comply fully with environmental guidance and legislation and are designed in such a way as to prevent tampering, leakage or spillage. Drip trays are supplied to contain any spillage which may occur whilst tank filling operations are being undertaken.

Above ground diesel tanks

If it is necessary to stock a large amount of diesel fuel above ground on site – it is a legal requirement to store it in a bunded diesel tank, which is specifically designed to contain hazardous chemicals.  TSG is able to supply and install bunded diesel tanks based on the site’s specifications.

Whether the tanks is for a public transport hub, a delivery company or even a farm, above ground fuel tanks are a practical and economic answer to stock large amounts of fuel and facilitate the refuelling of site vehicles without the need to visit service stations.

TSG can help business owners through the whole process – ensuring that they purchase the most suitable above ground tank for their needs and that it is delivered and installed safely.
