Fuel Tank Decommissioning

Redundant & disused underground tanks and pipework have the potential to remain dangerous or even explode if they have not correctly been made safe.

Soil contamination resulting from leaks in redundant fuel tanks is a growing concern as ageing steel tanks may begin to fail. Our modern fuel blends corrode older tanks and fittings much faster than before.

If you need to 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 proper 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.
