Scope of Works

  • Working in challenging conditions around a live working station, the site set up was key to the works being successful.
  • The fully trained confined space team set up a gantry with a winch over the hatch of the tanker to gain safe access into the tank.
  • 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.
  • Any remaining water was uplifted by a vacuum tanker.
  • The confined space operative entered the tank to clean to a white rag standard.
  • Once cleaned the team replaced the lid, issued gad free certificate and demobilised the site set up ready to handover to the client.
