Red Diesel Tank Clean

Client: Newton Transport
Project: Snodland

Brief Description:

Following the change in legislation in the use of Red Diesel, Newton Transport contacted us and awarded the project to clean 1no.aboveground storage tank.

Scope of Works

  • As this was a busy working lorry yard, prior to the commencement of works the team completed the client’s site induction
  • The fully trained confined space team set up at the entry point with a tripod and winch in place, gas monitors and entry board filled out
  • A gas monitor was used to continually monitor the LEL levels around the tank and take readings and recorded every 15 mins ensuring that works were carried out in the safest possible conditions
  • The remaining fuel and washings was uplifted by a vacuum tanker and the confined space operative entered the tank to clean to a white rag standard.
  • Once cleaned the team replaced the lid and demobilised the site set up ready to handover to the client.
  • The waste material was removed to a licenced facility with all waste tickets handed over to the client.
