Updated: Jun 4


The Bayswater Airport Rail Link is an important infrastructure development aimed at improving transportation connectivity in Perth. As part of the project, Handy Fuel WA was entrusted with the task of decommissioning a redundant 5000-litre fuel tank that was randomly discovered during routine earthworks on site.

At Handy Fuel Management Solutions, we take pride in our expertise in fuel tank & dispensing system supply, installation, and maintenance. Recently, we had the opportunity to contribute our services to a significant project in Perth, Western Australia: the Bayswater Airport Rail Link. Our team successfully completed the safe decommissioning of an old 5000-litre Diesel fuel tank, strictly adhering to AS 4976-2008, The Removal and Disposal of Underground Petroleum Storage Tanks, and all associated OHS & Environmental Regulations with regards for the responsible removal of any Controlled Waste from site. In this blog post, we will share the details of this project and highlight the importance of the correct and compliant decommissioning of underground fuel storage tanks.


The Bayswater Airport Rail Link Project

The Bayswater Airport Rail Link is an important infrastructure development aimed at improving transportation connectivity in Perth. As part of the project, Handy Fuel WA was entrusted with the task of decommissioning a redundant 5000-litre fuel tank that was randomly discovered during routine earthworks on site. This fuel storage tank, having served its purpose many years previously, needed to be safely emptied and removed to make way for further construction development.

Safe Decommissioning within Code of Practice

Handy Fuel WA understands the criticality of adhering to all associated Australian Standards & Environmental Regulations when it comes to fuel tank decommissioning. Our team meticulously planned and executed the decommissioning process, ensuring compliance with all applicable regulations. We took into account factors such as tank location, accessibility, and environmental considerations to devise a safe and efficient extraction strategy.


Responsible Removal of Controlled Waste

During the decommissioning process, our team prioritised environmental stewardship and the responsible disposal of any controlled waste. We followed environmental protocols to prevent any contamination or adverse effects on the surrounding area and also conducted soil sampling & analysis of the excavation pit. Our experienced professionals expertly handled the fuel tank and all associated Controlled Waste materials, ensuring their safe transportation and disposal at licensed waste management facilities and producing Waste Tracking Certification upon compliant disposal.


Commitment to Safety and Quality

Handy Fuel WA maintains a strong commitment to safety and quality in all our projects. The decommissioning of the 5000-litre fuel tank at the Bayswater Airport Rail Link was no exception. We employed trained and certified technicians who possess the necessary expertise and experience to handle such tasks with the utmost care. Our team utilised industry-standard equipment and followed stringent safety protocols to guarantee a smooth and risk-free operation.


Handy Fuel WA is proud to have contributed our fuel management expertise to this ongoing project. Our quick and successful decommissioning of the fuel tank highlights our commitment to safety, quality, and environmental responsibility and allowed the development to continue as planned. We understand the importance of compliant tank decommissioning and will continue to provide our pinnacle-level services in fuel tank supply, installation, maintenance, and decommissioning.
