Global Reach

As a long established tank lining and tank coating contractor, we operate globally offering a comprehensive, economical and cost effective solution with full on-site technical support. With over thirty five years’ experience of working with tanks, we have found that almost any tank in any condition can be lined and brought back into full service. We can extend the practical working life of a tank by twenty plus years wherever it is located and have completed successful projects in Eastern Europe, Western Europe, the North Sea, the Far East, the Indian Ocean, South Pacific and Australasia.

  • Cost on average approximately 10% the cost of replacing a tank (or an effective saving of 90%). (1)
  • Works on large tanks normally completed in a few short weeks.
  • Can extend the practical working life of a tank by 30 plus years. (2)
  • Resin based lining systems especially developed for tropical conditions.

When working on international projects, we consider how the environment and climate may affect the performance of our lining solutions. We have resin-based lining systems with strong anti-corrosion and chemical resistant specifically formulated for use in tropical conditions, which ensure the lifetime of the tank is suitably extended. Our tank lining services are particularly effective in remote locations where logistical challenges are present. The cost benefits of re-lining an existing tank far outweigh the expense of transporting and installing replacement steel tanks.

Depending on the exact requirements of a project, we can offer tank lining, tank coating or part tank lining services. Part tank lining is often a cost-effective solution to repairing bulk fuel storage tanks where the tank floor has been damaged or corroded by water and condensation.

Wherever possible, we work with local labour or your own staff to help reduce the cost of the tank lining project. In doing so, we add value by training your staff, helping them to acquire new skills and supporting your local economy.

For many projects there are a number of specific technical requirements and characteristics that the lining materials must be able to perform to.
