Fuel Oil Tanks

The Blake Group Storage Tank Department design and manufacture fuel oil storage tanks for safe storage and dispensing of all fuel oils, such as red and white diesel, gas oil, biodiesel, and kerosene.

Dispensing tanks are fitted with electrically powered pumps and dispensing hoses with automatic shut-off nozzles, or hand-operated pumps. We also supply pump sets for connection to heating systems or generator sets.

We recommend following the Environment Agency (EA) and Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) guidelines “Guidance for Pollution Prevention” (GPP2) to guarantee compliance with all oil storage regulations. We make sure that compliance with HSG176 is checked whenever flammable liquids, such as kerosene or petrol, are being stored.

Blake Group is the number one choice for bunded storage tanks, diesel tanks, biodiesel tanks, bunded fuel tanks, water tanks, chemical tanks, stainless steel tank fabrications, bunded oil tanks, and waste oil tanks.

Diesel Generator Tanks

Diesel storage and distribution is the most popular requested application for our fuel tanks. Our oil tanks are suitable for domestic and small-scale commercial use, however we recommend our range of integrally bunded steel storage tanks specifically designed for generator use.

Standard capacities range from 200 to 140,000 litres in either rectangular or cylindrical tank designs. Our custom built diesel generator tanks are particularly useful for power supply applications, as they can be manufactured to suit specific sizes and capacities. Tanks can be designed to fit in most locations, including basements or restricted access areas.

We can incorporate twin-wall pipework provision where required, with several options to achieve this. Generator base tanks can be designed to suit specific applications where a normal tank would not work. Accessories such as electronic gauges, alarms with relays, pump sets and float switches are also available to accompany your tank.

All Blake tanks are designed, manufactured and tested to British Standard BS799-5:2010. Blake Group welders are tested and qualified to BS EN ISO 15614-1:2004 for both carbon steel and stainless steel.
