Should you require any further information then please email us at Kirsty McIntyre [kirsty@merklandtank.co.uk]. Use Merkland Tank for a comprehensive Tank Cleaning Service in the UK and Europe. Our particular advantage, in both time and cost, is two-fold. Firstly is the inter- related functions in our work that allow us to carry out the bulk of even the most complex contracts in-house and secondly our Company quality ethos to “get it right first time” which enables Merkland Tank Limited to undertake whole contracts with the minimal use of sub-contractors.

By the very nature of our work we are adept at the one off or non-standard contract. Our trained and experienced workforce tackles each job on its own merit using the latest appropriate techniques. Other contracts undertaken involve the cleaning and maintenance of industrial boilers and various works within the ship maintenance industries such as bilge and tank cleaning of ships when alongside or in dry dock.

Our OFTEC Registered Technicians will cary out your annual Tank Inspection to ensure your Above Ground Tank complies with current regulations.
