Talk to the experts in fuel storage compliance
There’s no substitute for experience. When it comes to storing flammable liquids safely and in compliance with relevant national and regional regulations, getting the right advice from the start can save you money, reduce risk and give you peace of mind.
Environmental and safety legislation is different across urban, regional and remote areas, storage volumes, fuel types, business models and storage systems. It can be difficult to keep track of changing requirements.
At F.E.S. TANKS, we have the knowledge you need to choose the right system and ensure it is installed and maintained in full compliance with all relevant legislation.
Our expert technicians can advise you on how to ensure your equipment and your operations are compliant, wherever you are. Talk to your local F.E.S. team or call us on 1300 651 391.
Protecting your investment – individually and independently certified
Your fuel is a valuable investment, which is why getting compliance right is important.
In the event of an accident, your insurer will need to know your fuel storage tanks are certified compliant.
That’s why at F.E.S. TANKS, each of our self-bunded fuel tanks is individually certified to UL and Australian Standards by an independent engineer, which means you can guarantee your fuel, your workplace and your bottom line are protected.
Our tanks are fully compliant with Australian and international health and safety standards and are built for easy maintenance, cleaning and inspection. Securely bolted doors open onto a fully self-contained bunded area for safe, measured fuel dispensing and filling.
These durable tanks are ideal for all types of fuel, including petroleum and diesel.
Protection against fuel leaks
Complying with environmental legislation is more than just ticking a box – getting it right could make an enormous difference to your bottom line.
Fuel leaks are not only costly to your operations but can cost you many times more in clean-up bills. A properly maintained and certified self-bunded tank and refuelling system – including valves, pipes, pumps and hoses – is the best protection you have against fuel leaks that can cause soil or water contamination and six-figure fines.
