History

Austank started in 1985 as a company building domestic heating oil tanks and lube oil tanks for suburban Melbourne and Sydney. As the use of heating oil declined, Austank diversified into manufacturing larger tanks for the petro-chemical industry.  From the 450 ltr oil tank that Austank started with, the Company now manufactures tanks ranging from 15 litres to 1.2 million litres.

Whilst working closely with WorkSafe, Austank has further diversified into installation of tanks & associated pipe work as well as becoming involved in the removal of existing tanks & pipe work. Due to Austank’s broad experience, consultation is often sought at the design stage as well as existing sites to ensure that they comply with Australian Standards.

Environment Protection Authority (EPA)

Austank works closely with the EPA & various authorities across Australia in the decommissioning, removal & remediation of existing sites. This includes, but is not limited to the following areas, underground tank testing, degassing, decommissioning & disposal; soil testing, remediation & disposal; removal, disposal or re-routing of existing above & under ground pipework. All appropriate certification is provided upon completion & all works are undertaken as per EPA guidelines 888 & Australian Standards.
