Manufacturing Diesel Storage Tanks

Common Questions about Manufacturing Diesel Storage Tanks for NSW, NT, WA, and QLD Businesses

At Austank, we build steel storage tanks for a variety of industries throughout NSW, NT, WA, and QLD and have done so for most of the past 30 years. Our business has evolved from fabricating home heating oil tanks to manufacturing 1 million litre diesel storage tanks for NSW business owners. Because of our experience, we are routinely asked a number of questions about storage tanks. You may have some of the same questions.

How Long Does It Take to Build a Tank?

The time that it takes to build a steel tank will depend upon the size and an individual client's needs. A small rectangular tank is much simpler to manufacture and could take as little as a few days. Large canopy tanks, as well as the accompanying pipework, could take as long as 12 weeks to complete. When you work with us at Austank, we negotiate lead times with you, so that you know when you can expect your project to be completed.

Can I Buy Diesel Storage Tanks for my QLD Business in China?

Yes, it is possible to buy diesel storage tanks in China and, most likely, buy them cheaper. The problem with buying from China is that the manufacturer will not have a thorough understanding of the Australian Standards as they apply to storage tanks for fuel and chemicals. Austank's expertise lies with its in-depth knowledge of items such as 1940-2004 - The Storage and Handling of Flammable and Combustible Liquid. When you hire us to build diesel storage tanks for your NT operation, we create them, so they are compliant, safe, and durable. You may not get that from a Chinese manufacturer.

Can Austank Build a Tank to my Specifications?

We wouldn't have it any other way. Our engineers liaise directly with you to build tanks exactly to your requirements. We can custom-design a tank and install it to suit the needs of your operation. Every application is different. We realise this and build tanks that work for you in the space you have available. There is no need to change your site to suit the tank. We will alter the tank to fit your site.

Why Does It Make Sense to Choose Austank?

You will not find another company in Australia, or worldwide that can custom design and build a storage tank to meet not only your requirements but also be compliant with all of the Australian Standards. We have built storage tanks for the mining industry, the aviation industry, and the floriculture industry. We have become the trusted name in diesel storage tanks in WA as well as the rest of the country because of our outstanding quality, expertise, and efficiency in the fabrication process.
