The Gap, Qld

Enviro Pacific

The Challenge

Enviro Pacific, contractor for a new 7Eleven fuel station at The Gap (Qld), contracted Australian Tanks (ATQ) to supply a 20,000L trafficable and anti-floatation blind sump tank to capture stormwater run-off contaminated with fuel from the areas surrounding fuel bowsers. With no tank specified on the plans, Enviro Pacific sought a solution which met all industry standards and one which would be approved by 7Eleven.

The Solution

ATQ produce a new industry standard on Blind Sump and Fuel/Chemical Spill tanks. Not only are all tanks anti-floatation and trafficable (T44 rated) by a fully loaded semi, our Fuel/Chemical Spill tanks are provided entirely complete, under our strict Quality Control conditions to ensure complete compliance. Tanks are internally coated with a specific fuel industry epoxy sealant and are delivered with all penetrations and connections in place, fully sealed to prevent leakage into and/or out of the tanks.

Supplying our tanks as complete prevents the product being compromised by further contractor work once the tank is on site. All that is required once our tanks are lowered into the excavation is a simple connection to external hook-up locations.

The Results

  • Approved by 7Eleven and delivery of complete and fully operational Blind Sump tank provided within specified timeframe
  • Installed and backfilled within a two (2) hour period
  • Install fully compliant with strict OH&S procedures
  • Anti-floatation and trafficable by a fully loaded semi-trailer
  • Onsite efficiencies and project savings

Products

  • One (1) x 20,000L tank, fuel specific epoxy sealed with all connections and penetrations provided prior to delivery
  • Stainless Steel suction pipes
  • Radar sensor housing
  • T44 traffic rated

Hutchinsons Builders
With stormwater run off from surrounding sites, a rapid install was essential. Combined with budget constraints, a cost efficient solution was required for project maximisation.
Accurate Plumbing
Previously, Accurate Plumbing (the Plumbing Contractor) had installed up to 30 pump stations using an alternative system over a 12-18 month period. The pump stations were challenged with speed issues and OHS requirements, further impacted by the cost and time loss incurred by ongoing replacement and servicing.
Reidy Constructions
Australian Tanks provided a 20kPa load rated precast concrete tank that was designed to be trafficable by a fully loaded semi-trailer.
The pump equipment, including all the pipework, valves, upper guide bar brackets, guide rails, discharge connections, pumps, pump lifting chains, and float switches, were fitted in the tank in the Australian Tanks factory.
