Storage Tank Supply, Installation and Removal Services
Merkland Tank can supply and install a full range of new steel bunded oil tanks and polyethylene fuel tanks.
Our steel bunded tanks are suitable for diesel, oils, fuels, water, Adblue and other liquids in capacities from 4500 litres to over 80000 litres. All of our steel tanks are BS 799 compliant. Our polyethylene tanks are suitable for domestic heating oil in capacities from 1000 litres to 5000 litres. Our tanks can also be custom built to suit specific site restrictions or customer requirements.
We are proud that our tanks are certified to OFTEC Standards OFS T100 & OFS T200 and comply with the Above Ground Oil Storage Tanks: GPP 2.
360 Turnkey Solution
Merkland Tank provides a full 360 turnkey solution for all your storage tank needs.
In addition to our storage tank supply, installation and removal services, we undertake emptying, cleaning, gas freeing, inspection and maintenance of storage tanks.
We can also supply new sectional water tanks and offer a repair service for existing water tanks.
This end-to-end managed approach eliminates the need for you to communicate and manage works from multiple suppliers, helping to minimise your project costs and reduce downtime, risk and residual waste.
Merkland Tank, working with our trusted specialist pipework partner James Ramsay (Glasgow) Ltd, offer an unrivalled off-site fabrication service as part of our storage tank and pipeline installation solution.
One recent project, on behalf of our client in the energy sector, saw us supply and install more than 100 metres of 150NB line pipe as part of a bulk fuel installation project. We prefabricated a high-quality API 5L seamless pipe with Tig welded butt joints and a 10% x-ray requirement. The pipe and fittings then had a marine grade 2-pack paint system applied, ready for installation on-site.
Prefabrication in our dedicated facility offers several advantages over the on-site alternative, especially during testing and finishing processes. X-ray inspection of welds and pipeline pressure testing in our controlled environment can be carried out safely, more efficiently and with less disruption on-site.
When carrying out tank and pipeline installation – particularly in remote locations – our off-site prefab work reduces the continuous transportation of materials, equipment and people to site during the installation process, makes for shorter construction time on-site and reduces facility downtime.
