Diesel tanks installation for generators

High volume customers normally require diesel tanks for diesel fuel storage or for fueling generators. These tanks are commonly installed above the ground level or placed underground. It all depends on the tank size and the instructions and guidelines provided bt the Department of Environmental Affairs. Standard tank sizes are 500 and 1,000 gallon equivalent to 1,850 and 3,700 liters.

To Apply for a tank

For tanks of over 2,000 liters you will need a permit. The application starts with an official request to the Department of Environmental Affairs (Milieu Dienst). This department requests advice from the Fire Department and Curoil. After all three parties submit a positive advice the official permit is granted. Please contact the Department of Environmental Affairs at Telephone number: 736 9012 We at Curoil can also supply the material and supervise your project.
