Bunded fuel tanks

Manufacturers of the highest quality bunded fuel tanks, built for protection and convenience

Western Global is proud to manufacture world-renowned bunded fuel tanks. We’ve been meeting the evolving needs of various industries for over six decades, making it our mission to provide safe, secure and environmentally-secure bunded fuel storage. 

Bunded fuel tanks provide numerous advantages over conventional single skin fuel tanks, especially in demanding environments and situations. If you need security, convenience, and protection then look no further than Western Global’s bunded diesel tanks.

What is a bunded fuel tank?

We engineer 110% bunded fuel tanks where the secondary containment is built into the tank. This means that all pump fittings and connections are housed within an exterior wall. With a built-in weather proof cabinet and tank, we eliminate the need for secondary contaminants. This dramatically simplifies the cleaning and inspection process. 

All pumps and accessories are housed within a contained cabinet, out of the environment and do not need to be assembled on site. Your fuel is also secured behind two steel walls, preventing theft and the risk of fuel getting into the environment, which can cost thousands to clean up.

Bunded fuel tanks versus single skin, cylindrical or underground tanks

Bunded fuel tanks offer many benefits over cylindrical and single skin tanks. With single skin tanks, you have the additional expense of secondary containment that is needed to catch any spills or drips which can incur labour charges, as well as costing extra for each secondary containment to be cleaned out. Single skinned tanks also do not have forklift pockets to provide convenient manoeuvrability around site or for offloading. These are just some of the reasons that single skinned tanks are slowly being replaced by bunded tanks. 

Bunded cube fuel tanks are automatically EPA compliant, as they provide complete protection against spills and leakage. Pumps and accessories are housed inside the tanks within a locked cabinet, protecting them from environmental damage or degradation while saving you money in the long run. 

Our bunded cube design also reduces time spent cleaning and emptying your tank following transportation, as they are already filled with fuel and easier to relocate than cylindrical tanks.

Benefits of bunded diesel storage tanks

There are numerous benefits of bunded diesel storage tanks, ranging from environmental to everyday maintenance. Let’s explore these advantages in more detail:

Cleaning and Inspection

Bunded containment simplifies the cleaning and inspection process. Many of Western Global’s products include a removable inner tank, which makes cleaning and purging a fuel tank very easy. The inspection hatch on Western Global’s steel fuel tanks is a feature which helps you maintain and inspect the tank without having to fully take it apart. When it comes to convenience, our integrally bunded tanks require minimal site preparation, keeping things simple. This extends the service life of the steel fuel tank, which is predicted at over 10-years of reliable operation and income.

Environmental Compliance

Understandably ground contamination is a major concern for many companies utilising steel bunded diesel tanks. Our bunded fuel tanks give you peace of mind that there will be no leakage and contamination. Western Global tanks protect against on site ground contamination, helping you deliver on your environmental commitment. 

All Western Global bunded fuel tanks for sale meet the highest international standards including relevant compliance approvals in the UK, including UL142, the international standard for fuel tank safety, and UN IBC 31A/Y – the United Nations’ international standard for design of storage tanks for transporting dangerous goods.

HVO ready bunded tanks

If your site is switching to HVO then Western Global’s steel fuel storage tanks already have the ability to store this greener fuel. Reducing on site emissions by 85%, HVO is the responsible choice. Protect the environment further with a HVO-ready bunded tank from Western Global.

Heavy-duty, bunded protection

Our bunded fuel bowsers and tanks are robust, with the double-walled construction providing extreme protection. This makes them ideal for demanding industries like construction. In an experiment, we hoisted a popular 10TCG model, weighing in at 1,451kg, 80ft in the air and released it to gravity. In the drop, we demonstrated just what our bunded tanks could withstand, with the inner tank maintaining pressure.
