Unique approach

We understand that each task requires a unique approach and we will undertake careful analysis of your specific project to establish the most straight forward cost effective way forward.

  • Large and easily accessible tanks which have been fully decommissioned will be extracted from their location, and craned onto one of our low-loaders for transportation from site.
  • Where tanks cannot be accessed for uplifting as whole units, our operatives will decommission, empty, gas-free and cut them into manageable pieces for removal from site.
  • We use the latest cold cutting and flame cutting equipment appropriate to the location of the tanks. We maintain a constant awareness of working within hazardous environments and other potentially hazardous neighbouring plant
  • All operatives are experienced in Confined Space work and hold relevant certification
  • A Gas-Free certificate is issued for each tank we decommission

Difficult access – It could be necessary on occasion to deconstruct and rebuild tank room walls which we at Boiler and Plant will also undertake as part of our complete service to you.

Safety of our operatives

All internal tank work is constantly monitored by an external ‘top-man’, using the latest safety equipment and breathing apparatus.

We will work in accordance with your site guidelines and the PPE at work Regulations 2002.

Legislation dictates that every stage of the process must comply with the stringent regulations of the Environment Agency and the Industry’s Health and Safety Executive.
