Fuel Tank Decommissioning

Redundant & disused underground tanks and pipework have the potential to remain dangerous or cause fire or explosion, if they have been made safe via the correct decommission process

Soil hydrocarbon contamination resulting from leaks in redundant fuel tanks and associated pipework is a growing concern as ageing steel tanks begin to fail with age. Our modern fuel blends corrode older steel tanks and fittings much faster than before, along with water content buildup due to condensation over time. These processes on old steel tanks can be catastrophic for the surrounding soil and environment.

If you need to remediate or upgrade a site that has old fuel tanks that are now decommissioned and out of service, Handy Fuel WA specialises in tank decommissions and the safe and compliant removal of fuel storage tanks in Western Australia.

HandyFuelWA has extensive experience in all aspects of the servicing, maintenance and decommissioning of above and below ground storage tanks. All of our work is always completed with complete regard for the environment.

We specialise in the assessment, installation, testing, commissioning, maintenance and management of both Underground and Above Ground Fuel Storage Systems. We offer a complete service to ensure all fuel storage and supply systems are maintained and remain in optimal condition.

If you’re considering replacing your underground tanks or changing your fuel storage configuration, it’s time to call in the experts in underground tank removal and decommissioning.
