11,500 L Heating Oil Tank Decommissioning and Removal

If you have an old oil tank on your property that is no longer in use, it is important to have it decommissioned properly to avoid any potential hazards. 

 

Oil Tank Decommissioning 

 

This is the process of removing and disposing of an unused or abandoned oil tank in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.

At Britteco, we understand the importance of proper oil tank decommissioning. We have years of experience in the field, and we follow all necessary protocols to ensure that the process is completed safely and efficiently.

Our team was recently hired to remove an old oil tank that had been abandoned on a commercial property. The tank had been left unused for years, and an outbuilding had been constructed around it, including its electrics, safety system, and asbestos roof. Our task was to not only decommission the tank but also to remove the outbuilding and make the area safe for future use.

The first step in the process was to remove the oil from the tank. This was done using specialized equipment and following all necessary safety protocols. We then disconnected the tank from the heating system and began the process of cutting it down to size.

Once the tank had been cut down, we disposed of the waste and metal cleanly, ensuring that all materials were properly recycled or disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. We also removed the outbuilding, including its electrics, safety system, and asbestos roof, and disposed of all materials safely.

Our team is trained and experienced in working with hazardous materials and we follow all necessary safety protocols to ensure that the process is completed safely and efficiently.

Our customer had hired us as part of the renovation of the entire building, and our task was to leave a nice, clean place that could be turned into a rest area for employees. By removing the old oil tank and outbuilding, we were able to create a safe and usable space that could be enjoyed by all.

Oil tank decommissioning is not a process that should be taken lightly. It is important to work with a team that has the necessary experience and training to ensure that the process is completed safely and efficiently. At Britteco we are committed to providing our clients with the highest level of service and quality workmanship.

About the Service

Removing Oil Fuel Tanks

If your oil tank is installed in an easy-to-access location, we can often remove it in one piece via excavation and crane removal. If your oil tank is installed in a difficult to access location, or if you’ve subsequently built on top of the oil tank, our team may need to remove the oil tank in pieces.
For safety, we’ll cut your tank using Cold Cutting and spark-free tools.
