Mechanical integrity management of bulk storage tanks

FABIG Members: Log-in to access all FABIG resources

SUMMARY

Following the Buncefield incident the importance of preventing loss of containment from bulk storage tanks has come to the fore. A significant factor in ensuring contained fluids are not accidentally released is the continuing mechanical integrity of the tank structure. With this in mind, the joint industry/Competent Authority Process Safety Leadership Group has set up a working group to establish agreed industry standards for bulk storage tank integrity management.

The Health and Safety Laboratory was commissioned to produce a review of relevant published standards pertaining to the management of the mechanical integrity of bulk storage tanks. The findings from this review are reported here.

This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including any opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the author alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy.
