Initial Site Visit And Assessment
Wiltshire College and University Centre. Working on behalf of Watson Fuels, our team carried out a site visit to assess their needs. We found that we needed to replace an aged and corroded steel oil tank for a shiny new one of the customers choosing.
The Job Starts
The day of the job. We started by syphoning the existing oil into holding tanks on site and setting up a temporary tank and supply line so that their oil fired appliances could still be safely used whilst we worked on site.
We needed to remove the existing steel oil tank, how you ask? By using a Hiab that’s how! Any waste was disposed of in a waste tank kept onboard our truck for safe disposal once we left. Once removed we were able to work on the base for the new tank.
Bringing In The New Tank
The old brick piers were covered in oil and not in very good shape, so we got rid of them. We then constructed new concrete block piers, allowed them to set and then spanned them with concrete lintels and slabs to create a lovely fully supportive base for the new tank.
This needed time to set and do its thing so we left it to it returning later on to install the customers new shiny tank of choice – a Titan ES5000 bunded oil tank with remote filling capabilities (this isn’t magic but rather achieved by extended offset fill).
The Finished Product
With the new tank in place we could start pumping clean oil and reconnecting to their oil fired appliances. Their new shiny tank was now ready to use.
After a nice thorough clear up, we like to ensure we leave sites clean and tidy, we were done and heading home.
