Safe Fuel Tank Decommissioning

We expose the top of the tank, and then cold cut a large hold at the top, so our operative can safely and efficiently access the tank to remove any substances that may be contained within them, and scrubbing the interior completely clean to remove the risk of environment contamination. The DP Tanks personnel that enter the tanks are fully trained and qualified to carry out the job to its fullest potential, whilst still working at an efficient speed. The typical tank cleaning method that we use is man entry, as we feel that no other method has been able to sufficiently clean the tanks to the standard that we hold by doing everything manually. However, if requested or if we feel that high pressure jet washing would be the more efficient method of cleaning we are also extremely equipped and experienced in this line of work. We then clean and reuse most of the water used to wash the tank with all of our other projects to avoid using unnecessary amounts of water.


Why Cold Cutting?

Our techniques when cold cutting mean that we are able to cut the tanks up, and remove them piece by piece. After an underground tank has been removed, all materials are recycled to environmental regulation standard
