Storage tank installation

Installing bespoke and off-the-peg storage tanks, so you remain compliant.

We help storage tank and tank farm operators with the installation of bespoke and off-the-peg storage tanks, so you remain compliant with all relevant standards, good practice, and regulations.

Our complete tank installation service provides full site surveys, expert tank configuration recommendations, and civil engineering, which helps you to implement proven pollution prevention measures.

Tank standards

There are recognised British Standard and trade association tank standards for different types of tanks. Your tank manufacturer, or Flotech if we are installing, can advise you on the minimum design and manufacturing standards under the appropriate accredited quality assurance scheme.

Please note that compliance with standards for construction and manufacture doesn’t guarantee compliance with Oil Storage Regulations (OSR). Other aspects such as secondary containment, pipework, location, and deliveries, also affect OSR compliance.

When selecting a tank, choose one that:

  • Is expected to last at least 20 years, with proper maintenance before it needs to be replaced.
  • Is made of a material that is suitable for the type of product you will store (check with supplier).
  • Is of sufficient strength and structural integrity to ensure that it won’t burst or leak in ordinary use.
  • Has a way of preventing drain down by gravity e.g. top off-take and / or isolating check valves.
