Steel Oil Tanks

Steel Oil Storage Tanks

We offer both single skin steel oil tanks and those with a secondary containment, both of which are high quality and long lasting. Our single skin steel oil tanks are low cost and available in a range of sizes, from 900 litres to 2,300 litres. Our bunded steel oil tanks are fitted with an integral secondary containment, making them extremely secure and environmentally friendly. They are available in a range of sizes also, ranging from 900 litres to 90,000 litres. All of our bunded steel oil tanks can be fitted with fire protection as a way to protect premises and its contents.

As well as our standard range of steel oil tanks, we also manufacture them on a bespoke basis. This means you can find the ideal steel oil tanks for you, which is helpful if you are replacing an existing tank with very specific dimensions. We use steel that’s durable, weatherproof and long lasting. Our steel oil tanks can last for more than 30 years when taken care of correctly.

When you choose one of our steel oil tanks, you will be choosing a tank that is ready to use. They are completely self contained, which makes moving and emptying very easy. Our steel oil tanks are low maintenance, as no rainwater can enter the bunded area. All of the tanks come with a high specification and only premium ancillary equipment is used.

Choosing a Steel Oil Tank Size

You can view all of our steel oil tanks as a long term investment, as they are built to last. By buying a tank with a large capacity, you can save money on kerosene. Though the initial tank cost will be more, you can save money in the long run by bulk buying kerosene. The price of kerosene often changes, but a larger tank allows you to stock up when prices are low. You can take advantage of offers, deals and savings.

A large steel oil tank also means you don’t need to refuel it as often, which can reduce the cost of deliveries. It also reduces the chances of you running out of fuel completely. Over the course of the tank’s lifespan, these savings really do add up. It’s a good idea to opt for the highest steel oil tank capacity within your budget and space.
