Bund / Tank Integrity Assessments
Bund Integrity Testing is carried out to comply with EPA and Local Authorities who require this testing to be carried out every 3 years and also to ensure that the bunds themselves continue to provide protection for the vessels and tanks contained in them.
Traynor Environmental Ltd can provide both a visual inspection and a water retention test. The water retention test involves filling the bund to a certain level and then measuring the drop in level over a period of time normally 7 days.
Assessments are done in accordance with the following:
1. British standard BS8007:1987 – Design of concrete structures for retaining aqueous liquids.
2. CIRCA report 163 – Construction of bunds for oil storage tanks.
3. EPA’s IPPC Guidance Note on the Storage and Transfer of Materials for Scheduled Activities.
Traynor Environmental can provide a complete package which would involve the visual inspection, bund integrity assessment, preparation of bund matrix and completion of all reports to the satisfaction of the EPA or Local Authority.
