What is bund cleaning:

Tank bund cleaning is a crucial process that ensures the safety and environmental compliance of facilities storing liquids, especially hazardous substances. Here are some of the key points:

  1. Purpose:
    • Containment: Tank bunds prevent spills and leaks from reaching the surrounding environment. They act as a protective barrier.
    • Regulatory Compliance: Most regulations require bunds to have a holding capacity of either 110% of the largest tank within the bund or 25% of the total capacity of all tanks within the bund (whichever is greater).
    • Water Removal: Over time, water accumulates in the bund due to rain or other sources. When the water level exceeds 10% of the bund’s holding capacity, it becomes unfit for its purpose and must be removed.
  1. Tank Bund Cleaning Process:
    • Vacuum Tankers: Specialized vacuum tankers are used to remove water and any contaminants from the bund.
    • Local Treatment Works: The collected water is treated locally to ensure safe disposal.
    • Monitoring and Maintenance: Regular monitoring ensures compliance with regulations, and bunds are emptied when necessary.
  1. Benefits:
    • Environmental Protection: Proper bund cleaning prevents spills and protects soil and water.
    • Safety: Clean bunds reduce fire hazards and minimize risks to personnel.
    • Equipment Performance: Well-maintained bunds ensure optimal performance of tanks and associated equipment.
    • Cleaning: We use industrial jet washers and equipment to remove contaminants on the concrete walls and to clear vegetation.

Remember, keeping your tank bunds clean is essential for safety, compliance, and environmental responsibility.
