Design and Engineering of your Steel Tank

We pride ourselves on our ability to design and build you a tank, that works for you, in your space and environment. Although this approach costs a little more than an imported tank, you don’t need to change your site to fit the tank, we’ll change our tank to fit your site.

The added peace of mind from knowing that the tank is engineered and designed specifically for you, greatly outweighs the premium you will need to invest to purchase this Australian made product.

We build our tanks to the following Australian Standards:

  • AS 1692-2006 – Tanks for Flammable and Combustible Liquids,
  • AS 1940-2017 – The Storage and Handling of Flammable and Combustible Liquids
  • API 650 – Welded Steel Tanks for Oil Storage (where required)
  • AS 1657-2018 – Fixed Platforms, Walkways, Stairs and Ladders.

Fabrication of your Tank

Prior to fabrication our engineers will put together a CAD drawing and a copy will be sent to you for approval. Once approval is received the tank documentation and drawings will be issued to our factory for manufacture. Your Austank contact will be responsible for your project and will follow it right the way through to completion.
