Underground Storage Tanks (USTS)

Underground Storage

Storage tanks of fuels like petrol and diesel often fail over time. EnviroServ has been involved with the removal and recycling of these USTs for over ten years.


  • Abrasive water jetting at pressures more than 2 000 bar is used for cold cutting of the redundant USTs where typical hotwork methods could have explosive results.
  • Cut pieces are surface cleaned and taken into the scrap metal industry for recycling.


  • EnviroServ can provide many of the ancillary services around tank cleaning like industrial vacuuming and disposal of waste residues.
  • EnviroServ can choose and apply the right equipment suited to each type of job.
  • In most instances we will already have extensive experience relating to the work required and can advise the client on the best approach to follow.
  • Our specialists will quote on work required including all safety and occupational health requirements.
  • We have extensive experience meeting SHEQ requirements including that of the many multinationals we serve, with Safety and Health plans prepared ahead of any complex work.
