Solid Filling Tanks

The safe and cost effective method for redundant underground tanks

Solid Filling Tanks

Where redundant underground tanks need to be made safe, but it is not practicable or cost effective to remove them, we can solid fill them using approved materials.

Our Filling Methods

Our preferred method of solid filling tanks is with slurry or foaming concrete, as these are cost effective ways of completely filling the interior evenly without air pockets that can contain explosive vapour, thus making the tank safe to leave in the ground and/or remove at a later date.

We can also use specific types of solid foam if the customer requires.

Existing surface covers can either be replaced or the manhole chambers permanently made good to ground level

Redundant tanks can occur in the strangest places
