If your business relies on fuel, you’ll know how important it is to keep your fuel clean, fresh and secure. Fortunately, fuel storage systems have come a long way in recent years.

The Benefits of Above Ground Self-Bunded Fuel Tanks

Traditionally, businesses that choose to use above-ground storage tanks have been required to spend considerable time and effort building a bund to ensure any leaks from the tank can be sustained. These bunds need to be regularly drained and maintained to meet the requirements of environmental legislation. They also mean that changing tank locations is a significant task.

Thankfully, the self-bunded tank has changed all that and revolutionised refuelling for business. Basically, the tanks have an integrated second wall that contains any spill and has done away with the need to build expensive bunds. At the same time, they’ve created much more flexible fuel storage options for business, because they can be easily loaded on to a truck, transported and dropped at a new location, where they can be ready to use immediately with no expensive site work needed – we call it a “drag and drop” solution.

Why Should You Use An FES Tank?

FES Tanks are designed for easy use and easy maintenance. They are made from high quality materials with a durable protective coating for tough weather conditions and are designed with a Safe Fill Level 10 per cent greater than the standard, so you can go longer between refills. FES Tanks also have engineered an industry first by having a domed roof to prevent any water pooling on tank tops which protects the Tank top from pooling water.

Because they are designed with lockable dual manways for easy cleaning and maintenance and are made from materials compatible with a range of fuels, they’ll keep your fuel in top condition for longer.
