Comprehensive service for the internal & external cleaning of tanks
Tank cleaning is complicated, dirty and potentially dangerous work. Fires and explosions can occur due to the combustibility of the material being dealt with.
FIS offer a comprehensive service for the internal & external cleaning of tanks which may contain harmful substances to a certified gas-free standard, including tanks contaminated with aviation fuels, oil-based products, acids, phenols, chemicals, agricultural products and cyanides. Our methods meet all compliance and health & safety standards in vessel and tank cleaning.
