Storage tanks regardless of their size or contents are required to undergo periodic cleaning. This could be a basic maintenance requirement, due to a change in storage contents or simply because the tank is no longer required. Whatever the reason, Ash Remediation Management have the expertise and experience to provide you with the service you require.

Tank Decommissioning and Removal
Storage tanks that are no longer required can be decommissioned and either removed from site or filled with an inert foam. The decision on whether to remove or infill the tank will differ from site to site as there are advantages and disadvantages associated with each option. Needless to say, you can count on Ash Remediation Management to call on their experience to advise on the most suitable route to follow.
The method for removing and lifting tanks is highly site specific as numerous on site factors need to be considered. These include tank size, overhead and underground services and proximity to buildings/structures. In all cases, Ash Remediation Management will liaise and advise you on the most appropriate course of action and any tank removal or infilling will only commence after gas free certification has been issued (Ash Remediation Management can also provide these).
