Industrial Tank Cleaning Co. Sligo

Industrial tank cleaning job completed recently in Co. Sligo by McBreen Environmental.

This tank is over 30 years old and had never been desludged and cleaned before. The tank was 6 meters deep with all top level water and light waste pumped away before we began cleaning the remaining 1.25 meters of heavy waste at the base of the tank. The remaining waste consisted of heavy cake sludge, rag, silt & general foul waste.

Over the course of 2 days our experienced tank cleaning team made light work of removing almost 250 tonnes of waste from the base of this tank using our Hi-Tip Disab Suction Unit,  Rolba Jet Vac, Mini Excavator and Confined Space Entry Operatives before returning for a third and final day to clean down the walls and base of the tank leaving it spotless and ready to be put back into action.

All waste removed from the tank was transported back to our licensed disposal facility, Brefni Organics, for treatment and screening before being transferred to our top of the range composting facility where we go above and beyond to provide an environmentally friendly & sustainable alternative to liquid waste disposal.
