TANK, VOID & PIPELINE
DECOMMISSIONING

 

We pride ourselves at being able to offer our customers a full tank decommissioning service.

 

For this purpose LIS promote the use BritFoam™, a Urea Formaldehyde Polymer resin based hardfoam manufactured here in the UK. Our product is virtually odourless has an overall compressive strength (average 51.8 Newton's) making it easier to remove and more manageable to handle and work with.

The application procedure is approved by London Fire and Emergency Planning Association and other Local Licensing Officers throughout the United Kingdom.

Unlike concrete there is no need to gas free the tanks before injecting BritFoam™, all that is required is for the tanks to be emptied of all residues beforehand. Upon injection our product absorbs any hydrocarbons left present in the tank rendering the tank insert and safe.

Our experienced team can decommission a full site in under a day or in the event of a live site where only one tank is required to be decommissioned these works can be carried out with minimal disruption resulting in the site staying remaining open for business.

BritFoam™ meets all the criteria stated in Section 15 of the APEA/IP Design, Construction, Modification, Maintenance and Decommissioning of Filling Stations ("The Blue Book").

It is our Company policy to liaise at all times with the appropriate Licensing Authority before carrying out works on a Petroleum forecourt.

Should you only wish to temporarily decommission your below ground storage tanks this can be done using a water seal or water fill, as directed and with the agreement by your Local Licensing Authority.

Health & Safety is of the utmost priority; therefore our operatives all hold a current ADR Licence, UKPIA, are fully trained in Confined Space entry, use of breathing apparatus.

On the project below BritFoam™ was successfully used to fill the basement of a shop where change of building usage was imminent.

The purpose of the exercise was for added security to the building and to safely house utilities pipes i.e. gas, electricity etc.

BritFoam™ was chosen over concrete as it could easily and quickly removed should it be necessary a later date to gain emergency access to the utility pipes.
