Flexible fuel tanks

Flexible fuel tanks represent the best logistical solution for storing hydrocarbons. Their modest volume when “emptied and folded” is only equal to about 1% of their nominal storage capacity meaning that they can be simply and rapidly transported, no matter where they are to be installed.

The strength of these tanks coupled with the rapidity of their installation (less than 4h for a 300 m3 tank) means that they have become the preferred fuel storage system for organizations working in remote areas.

These flexible tanks can be used to establish both primary or secondary fuel depots. They provide continuity in the petrol supply chain by facilitating a range of operations:

  • The storage of jet fuel for refueling aircraft or other vehicles,
  • Providing power plants with diesel,
  • Supplying mining vehicles with fuel,
  • Supplying fuel for base-camp generators …

Composition / Advice

Care during use
The ground that the tank will be installed on must be flat (with a slope of less than 0.5%), and must be free of any protrusions that could damage the tank's skin.
Maintenance tips
After use, clean the outside of the product with soapy water, rinse and dry. Never use a detergent or aggressive product.
Storage advice
Store away from the light, damp and temperature variations, in its original case.
Filling advice
Ensure that the degassing vent is in the open position. The tank will gradually rise as it is filled. Do not exceed the maximum filling level that is indicated on the tank. Prevent overflow by remembering to close the valve after filling or emptying operations.
