Diesel Fuel Tank: Bund Containment

A major automotive manufacturer in the north of England commissioned us to reline an external diesel containment tank. 

Challenges

  • Although the tank had a bund area, it was leaking extensively and wholly inadequate

Our Solution

We prepared the internal surface by cleaning up the diesel spill underneath the tank, priming the surface and applying the first coat of resin. Before adding the first coat, we also repaired a number of holes using a custom-made resin paste. The final coat of resin was then applied and, once cured, the bund was able to be tested and used the following day.
