Bund Repair & Testing


Bulk tanks for storing fuel, oil and chemicals often pose the greatest spillage risk on site. The Control of Pollution (Oil Storage) Regulations 2001 requires secure tanks and bunding of 110% of the capacity of the bulk tank to contain a spill should it occur.


The Environmental Protection Agency’s Pollution Guideline PPG2 recommends that bulk storage tanks should consist of:


  • Reinforced Concrete Construction
  • Base and walls impermeable to water and oil
  • Any fill or draw off pipe should be located within the bund or, if not, adequately protected by secondary containment


Our Bund Repair & Testing service involves:


  • Visual inspection of bund
  • Hydro Static bund test in accordance with legislation
  • Bund Fault Report, if necessary
  • Bund repairs
  • Full certificate of bund
  • Inspection and testing in accordance with EPA document: “Storage and Transfer of Materials for Scheduled Activities “


Common Problems with Bunds:


  • Damaged Wall
  • Pipe existing through bund wall
  • Oil penetration through wall
  • Plant life in bund
