Complete tank installation service from MTS

We offer a professional installation service for all kinds of tanks, sewage treatment and drainage systems.

We are well known for our expertise in cleaning all kinds of tanks and vessels and we also offer a professional civil engineering service. A recent example of this kind of installation project was at the Kent County Council Household Waste Reception Site in Tovil, Maidstone in Kent.

MTS won a tender to install a bespoke disposal system to deal with a build-up of oily ground water at the Tovil site. Our solution was to install tanks and a bund to collect the ground water depositied from vehicles and machinery used at the site.

Jason Downer is the civil engineering specialist in the MTS business development team, with many years of experience behind him. Jason undertook the initial scope of the work and went on to design and coordinate the delivery of the project.

Jason said; “The new system features two tanks, situated in a bund which is a brick-built compound designed to collect any overspill from the tanks. The oily groundwater on the site runs into a series of gullies, which lead into four interceptors. From the interceptors the water runs into a wet well and when it reaches a certain level it is pumped into the new tanks. We use vacuum tankers to empty the tanks when they’re full and remove the water for disposal.”

Interceptors are designed to capture contaminants and prevent them entering the storm sewers where they can make their way to local water courses. Businesses can face prosecution fines and clean-up costs if found guilty of causing pollution to water courses, so the use of interceptors is key to reducing risk to both the environment and business.
