Storage Tank Survey


Storage tanks come in all shapes and sizes and contain solids, liquids and gases, so all pose inspection challenges. Our EMMUA159 qualified tank inspectors guide clients and our teams as to the requirements of the inspection standard and what can be done to ensure compliance.

GRP & Thermoplastic tanks used in industrial heavy engineering applications have typically been regarded as “fit and forget” items, with lifetimes based purely on manufacturer’s recommendations. This often does not take into account the specific conditions of tank usage, leading both to tank failure in service, and the unnecessary scrapping of serviceable tanks.

We can provide a full suite of technologies, from floor scanners, UT, tanks robots, laser scanning and where tanks are fluid filled we deploy ROV's and sonar to perform practical surveys. We have also specialised in bespoke services for tank owners such as being able to investigate and replace the base heating systems of LNG tanks whilst they remain operational.
