Steel Storage Tanks Fabricator

Blake Group is the UK’s premier supplier of:

  • Steel tanks suitable for biodiesel and diesel
  • Waste oil, lubricating oil, cutting oils, highly flammable and chemical liquids tanks
  • Stainless steel tanks suitable for edible oils, potable water, corrosive chemicals and foodstuffs
  • Polyethylene tanks suitable for domestic heating oil

We build on an unrivalled commitment to environmental and quality standards extending over 75 years. Blake Group is the preferred supplier to many of the UK’s leading oil companies, water authorities and both public and private sector organisations.

As leading steel fabricators, our steel bunded tanks are suitable for diesel, oils, fuels, water, Adblue and other liquids. All of our metal bunded tanks are BS 799 compliant. Blake Tanks were the first UK manufacturer to be certified to OFTEC’s OFS T 200 standard, the only standard that guarantees compliance with the UK oil storage regulations.

We offer tanks in standard capacities from 200 litres to 85,000 litres in a single tank. Our tanks can also be custom built to suit specific site restrictions or customer requirements. If rectangular and cylindrical tanks are not suitable for your application we can make tanks to non-standard shapes. All our carbon steel tanks are finished with zinc-rich oil-resistant paint externally as standard. Special finishes such as shot blasting, marine finish, galvanising, powder coating and internal coatings can be quoted. A wide range of tank accessories are available for us to fit to your tank, including gauges, alarms, pumps and overfill prevention devices.
