What Are Types of Storage Tanks We Install?

Our oil tank installation services encompass an extensive selection, ranging from 500-litre oil tanks to expansive 200,000-litre tanks for both above-ground and underground settings, catering to various needs.

When it comes to safeguarding against oil leaks, integrally bunded tanks stand out as the ultimate solution. These ideal oil tank installations boast an attached bund containing 110% of the inner tank’s capacity and fittings.

Typically constructed from either steel or plastic, bunded heating oil tanks offer exceptional protection. In some cases, you may even find tanks that combine the advantages of both materials, resulting in robust steel/plastic hybrid tanks.

Renowned as the top-tier option in the market, integrally bunded tanks shield against oil leaks and condensation. Their insulation is enhanced by the presence of air gaps within the bund, ensuring superior protection.

Single-skinned tanks are a practical and cost-effective solution for oil storage, characterised by a straightforward design comprising a single layer of plastic. These tanks often offer a more budget-friendly option than bunded or steel tanks with low oil tank installation costs and maintenance.

The adaptable nature of plastic allows for greater flexibility in shaping the tanks, enabling customisation to suit the specific requirements of homeowners. Unlike steel tanks prone to rusting and requiring regular painting, single-skinned tanks made of plastic eliminate the need for such maintenance tasks.

Double-skinned tanks, also called twin-walled or dual containment tanks, are characterised by their unique dual-layer construction. This design feature serves multiple purposes, including ensuring the secure containment of chemicals and liquids and providing a safeguard against potential oil leaks in the event of tank failure.

It is highly advised to install double-skinned tanks within a secondary system to maximise safety measures. With a focus on secure containment and proactive leak prevention, these double-skinned tanks provide a reliable solution for storing chemicals, liquids, and oils.

Network Environmental UK offers versatile installation options beyond outdoor placements, being reliable and all-rounder oil tank installers. In adherence to building regulations, installing indoor and underground oil tanks is achievable.

Underground oil tank installation necessitates professional construction and, in some cases, planning permission. The advantages of opting for an underground tank include space-saving benefits and a reduced risk of theft, as they remain concealed from view.

But underground tanks do present a drawback in terms of maintenance, as accessing and servicing them can be challenging due to their subterranean location. So, most households choose to install their oil tanks in outdoor areas for easier upkeep.

What Materials Tanks Are Available In?

Oil tanks are available in various materials, including:


Steel tanks are the most common type of oil tank. They are long-lasting and can defy a variety of weather situations. However, steel tanks can rust over time, leading to leaks.


Fibreglass tanks are resistant to corrosion and can withstand high winds and hail. They are also lighter than steel tanks, which makes them easier to install and move. However, fibreglass tanks can be more expensive than steel tanks.


Plastic tanks are less expensive than steel and fibreglass tanks. However, they are not as enduring and can be more easily harmed by sunlight and heat.

Process of Oil Tanks Installation

Although the actual steps involved in fuel tank installation vary depending on the tank type and location, the following are some general steps common to all fuel tank installations.

  1. Planning – The first stage is to plan the installation. This includes choosing the right tank type, size, and location. It is also necessary to get the required approvals and permits.
  2. Excavation – If the tank is to be installed underground, the next step is to excavate the hole. The size of the hole will depend on the size of the tank.
  3. Base Preparation – Once the hole is excavated, the base must be prepared. The base should be level and free of debris.
  4. Tank Installation – The next step is to install the tank. The tank should be placed on the prepared base and levelled. The tank should also be secured to prevent it from moving.
  5. Plumbing – The next step is to plumb the tank. This includes installing the fill line, the vent line, and the drain line.
  6. Testing – Once the tank is plumbed, the next step is to test it for leaks. This can be done by filling the tank with water and observing leaks.
  7. Backfilling – The hole can be backfilled once the tank is tested and leak-free.
  8. Inspection – The final step is to inspect the installation by a qualified professional.
