Above Ground Fuel Tanks
All above ground fuel tanks supplied by the company are manufactured from steel to a design that meets the requirements of the Environment Agency Oil Storage Regulations as detailed in their guidance document PPG2. Above ground fuel tanks are supplied in a double skinned or totally enclosed configuration that provides secondary containment in the event of a leak or a spillage.
Above ground diesel storage tanks are available to suit a wide range of applications and can be supplied with storage capacities from as little as 2000 litres up to those in excess of 100,000 litres. Above ground tanks are delivered to site by road and offloaded and positioned to their final location using a mobile crane. Site works to accommodate an above ground tank are normally 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.
