Fuel Storage Tank Cleaning, Removal and Installation
Whitelaws Coaches, a family firm in Stonehouse, South Lanarkshire, made the decision to upgrade and replace their fuel storage tank. For such an important investment with considerable implications, Merkland Tank were engaged as project managers with the goal to help refine the operational requirements.
Merkland Tank began the process of draining and removing the old fuel storage tank from site, during this process the existing tank manways were opened up and re-usable fuel was removed. Our fully trained staff removed any sullage by pressure washing the internal of the tank, then the redundant tank was disposed of in the appropriate manner in line with current legislation.
The next step in the process was to install a temporary 17,000L fuel storage tank, to be used in transition while the old fuel storage tank was drained and removed from the existing bund installation. This was a crucial step as Whitelaws required operations to run as normal.
The existing brick bund wall was removed and the plinth area was tidied up to allow the replacement tank to be placed and connected up to the existing pipework.
Being chosen as a preferred supplier for the new storage tank, Merkland Tank delivered a complete turn key replacement and we feel that an important trusting relationship has been built with Whitelaws.
