Vessel Tank Cleaning
- Storage/vessel tank cleaning
In today’s safety conscious work place, the preferred option is of no-man entry into a confined space; accordingly TMCH Group has work with range of technologies and methods using tank cleaning heads, vacuum transfer systems and other pumping solutions to clean tanks and vessels either remotely or with minimum man entry. Mostly, vessel tank cleaning involves man-entry because of the tank compartments.
TMCH Group Limited has the capacity to successfully clean various vessel and storage tanks of all sizes for the Oil&Gas industries and government agencies. Hazardous and non-hazardous wastes (dry and wet bulk) are found in these tanks. Confined space entry training is a pre-requisite to go into any tank for cleanup. These tanks are entered with breathing apparatus and are cleaned for fresh injection of product, routine/preventative maintenance and when vessel is going off-hire.
Because of the hazardous nature of confined space, TMCH Group developed a range of technologies and methods to safely clean tanks and vessels whether robot or by man entry. When wet or dry bulk muds, brines, sand, sludges deposits need removal, it’s often the case that human intervention is still necessary; our trained operatives have access to the most technologically advanced equipment available to do the job
The use of tank cleaning heads provides a robot cleaning solution allow for tanks and vessels to be cleaned with minimal requirement for man entry. We have a range of specialist cleaning heads which can be configured to meet the entry points of the tank / vessel removal of caked mud/sludge, and during off-hire of vessel.
