Why choose a bunded fuel tank?

Choosing a bunded fuel tank offers several advantages, primarily related to safety and environmental protection:

Containment

Bunded tanks have a secondary containment system, meaning there's an outer tank (bund) surrounding the inner tank where the fuel is stored. This provides an additional layer of protection against leaks and spills, containing any potential fuel leaks within the bund.

Environmental Protection

In case of a leak or spill, the bunded design helps prevent fuel from seeping into the ground or nearby water sources, reducing the risk of soil and water contamination. This is especially crucial for environmentally sensitive areas or locations near water bodies.

Compliance

Many regulatory bodies and environmental agencies require the use of bunded tanks for storing fuel, especially in industrial and commercial settings. Choosing a bunded tank ensures compliance with these regulations, avoiding potential fines or penalties.

Longevity

Bunded tanks are typically more durable and resistant to corrosion compared to single-skin tanks. The additional protective layer provided by the bund increases the lifespan of the tank, reducing maintenance costs over time.

Insurance Requirements

Some insurance companies may offer lower premiums for businesses or individuals using bunded tanks due to the reduced risk of environmental damage and liability associated with spills and leaks.
