Case Study: 2,500 litre tank replacement, South Lincolnshire
Project Brief: Paul from South Lincolnshire commissioned Tanks-UK to replace an old single skin steel oil tank with a new and more suitable bunded tank further away from his newly bought property to comply with current regulations.
Main Project Requirements:
- Drain down of old tanks
- Safely dispose of old single skin steel tank
- Move the tank base to comply with current regulation
- Set up and plumb in new bunded plastic tank
- Quick turnaround and long lifespan
Product Used: Harlequin 2500 ITE Bunded Oil Tank
Paul asked Tanks-UK to look at his project to replace the oil tank on his newly purchased premises; what was once a garage had been converted to an annexe, and to comply with a regulation change the fuel tank needed stepping out from the property wall. We visited site next day, and taking a tank from stock, we were able to offer a turnaround of 1 week to attend site and complete the project.
This consisted of removing and disposing of the old single skin steel tank, then constructing a new base to hold the new Harlequin double walled tank. We commissioned a local plumber who did a fantastic job and within 6 hours the project was complete.
Paul was very impressed with the outcome of the project, and commented that the plumber taught him a lot. He would be happy to recommend Tanks-UK for your oil tank project!
