Oil Fired Technical Association – OFTEC provide a checklist for the installation of oil storage that states a Bunded Tank is required when the tank:
An oil tank located in a flood risk area or an area exposed to high winds will require a Tank Restraint. This prevents the risk of tank tipping and causing damage to itself and potentially leaking oil.
Fire risks are also an important concern of ours when we install any fuel storage tanks. Oil Tanks need Fire Protection if the install matches any of OFTEC’s Fire Hazard checklist.
If the oil tank is located within:
UKIFDA (United Kingdom and Ireland Fuel Distributors Association) is the trade association for the oil distribution industry in the UK and ROI. It also publishes some very useful information for oil tank installation and the safe storage of fuel oils.
The UK Gov website also has info on the oil storage regulations and home owner’s responsibilities when removing an oil tank.
For domestic oil tank removals, installations and services, we cover Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Hampshire and West Berkshire.
