Tank Repair and Refurbishment

Tank Repair and Refurbishment

We provide long term protection for a wide range of tanks and vessels for storage, treatment, process and even road, rail and sea transport applications. As a result, we have developed expertise in the management of coating programmes for tankage and vessels used in environments as diverse as sewage treatment, activated carbon filtration, chemical and hydrocarbon storage and offshore oil processing.

Our specialist coating systems (laminates and fibre glass matting), protect tanks and vessels against hazardous materials and chemicals, adding strength and stability when in service. In many cases, these coatings have remained in service for up to 20 years without requiring further maintenance.


Typical applications include:

  • Acid pickling tanks
  • Ballast tanks
  • Effluent tanks
  • Fresh water tanks
  • Galvanisation dipping tanks
  • Seawater holding tanks
  • Settlement tanks
  • Underground fuel storage tanks
  • Water treatment tanks
  • Deaerator vessels
  • Degasser vessels
  • Filter vessels
  • Process vessels
  • Fuel Processing Tanks
  • Road Tanker vessels


We have a large on-site blasting facility at our workshop based in Leeds to abrasive blast and prepare tanks for coating. Our specialist coating team are experts in using spray application.  All coatings are work tested for coating thickness to prescribed requirements. We carry out full holiday testing to ensure continuity of the coating and quality finish on all work.

In addition, we have a unique and robust method for repair of floors on large bottom tanks. We achieve this with the use of advanced composite materials, without the need for over-plating. We carry our repairs without hotwork, creating either single or double skin solutions. As a result, these can be monitored remotely, in line with the performance levels these environments demand.

Our Nace qualified inspectors provide a thorough inspection and advise on the scope of works required.
