​Enviro Pacific - 7 Eleven Fuel Station

​Coated Fuel Spill Tanks - The Gap, Qld

Challenge

​Enviro Pacific, contractor for a new 7Eleven fuel station at The Gap (Qld), contracted Australian Tanks (ATQ) to supply a 20,000L trafficable and anti-floatation blind sump tank to capture stormwater run-off contaminated with fuel from the areas surrounding fuel bowsers. With no tank specified on the plans, Enviro Pacific sought a solution which met all industry standards and one which would be approved by 7Eleven.

Solution

​ATQ produce a new industry standard on Blind Sump and Fuel/Chemical Spill tanks.  Not only are all tanks anti-floatation and trafficable (T44 rated) by a fully loaded semi, our Fuel/Chemical Spill tanks are provided entirely complete, under our strict Quality Control conditions to ensure complete compliance.  Tanks are internally coated with a specific fuel industry epoxy sealant and are delivered with all penetrations and connections in place, fully sealed to prevent leakage into and/or out of the tanks.

Supplying our tanks as complete prevents the product being compromised by further contractor work once the tank is on site.  All that is required once our tanks are lowered into the excavation is a simple connection to external hook-up locations.
