Great Yarmouth firm ATI Tank Hire will be taking delivery of its largest capacity open top bunded tanks this month.
Originally used for the storage of oil-related products such as diesel, bunded tanks are ideal for safety-conscious clients who need to store substances from bentonite to contaminated water safely and without risking damage to the environment.
Open top bunds have a larger capacity than self-bunded tanks. They are also easier to clean inside the bunded area and it can be visually checked for leaks. With a 14,000 gallon storage capacity (65m3), these will be the largest capacity bunded tanks that ATI has to hire.
They can be used both onshore and offshore.
Operations Manager Justin Faraday-Drake commented: ‘This represents another milestone in ATI’s development and shows our commitment to customer preferences. The use of bunded tanks means that our clients can be confident that there will be no spillages. Our customers are very aware of safety and environmental considerations – even where they are not bound by legislation. We are always looking to be responsive to these needs.’
