Ferric Tank Removal

Ferric Tank Removal

Client: Bridges Electrical Engineers Limited
Project: Godstone, Surrey

Brief Description:

KpH were awarded the project by our long-standing client Bridges Electrical, to transfer Ferric Acid into the newly commissioned Ferric tank then clean and remove the redundant 26,000ltr vessel. Careful planning and preparation was required to ensure the project went safely and smoothly.

Scope of Works:

A safe working area was set up ready for the chemical transfer pump to be connected, some product was transferred into IBC’s were for use with the temp ferric plant. The operatives then set up the pump and hose to transfer the product safely into the new tank

Once the product transfer to the new tank had been carried out, our skilled operatives opened up an access in the side of the tank using cold cutting techniques to allow access to remove the remaining product. As the product was removed by a vacuum tanker, one of our environmental cleaning operatives pressure washed the walls and floor of the tank  removing as much product/water as possible before cleaning out the bund with all washings uplifted.

Working from the client’s scaffold and working in a methodical manner, the experienced team reduced the tank into manageable sections and placed into a skip for safe disposal . The tank, skid and all associated pipework were safely dismantled and removed to a licensed facility.

The experienced team carried out the dismantling and removal to a tight programme maintaining high standards of work and health and safety before being passed back to the client.
