A Single Skin Oil Tank consists of a single rotationally moulded container, in which fuel is stored. Single Skin Oil Tanks do not incorporate any form of secondary containment and therefore in the event of a spillage, ordinarily a pollution incident will result.
Single Skin Tanks Plastic Oil Tanks are suitable only for installation at the very small number of domestic installations where a Bunded Oil Tank is not a legal requirement.
Please note, prior to the installation of any Single Skin Heating Oil Tank, a Risk Assessment must be undertaken by an OFTEC Registered Technician or similarly competent person. The installation of a Single Skin Oil Tank at an installation where a Bunded Oil Tank is required, may result in non-compliance with fuel storage regulations and constitute a criminal offence.
