Deconstruction of Diesel Fuel Tanks

Deconstruction of Diesel Fuel Tanks

Enviropacific has successfully completed the first phase of removing diesel fuel tanks that fueled diesel electric iron ore trains for one of Australia’s largest iron ore producers.

This program is part of the iron ore producer’s de-carbonisation program across their mining business. Phase one consisted of the deconstruction of three diesel tanks located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Phase two will be to remove the bund structures and remediate the ground for alternative use by the organisation. 

The tank demolition project involved specialist sub-contractors who were engaged for the core activities which included tank cleaning prior to deconstruction, demolition of two 750 Kl diesel tanks and one 650 Kl diesel tank, connecting pipe work and ancillary infrastructure and the recycling or correct disposal of any associated waste.

Through positive collaboration regarding the safe work procedures and relevant safety concerns, the tank demolition project was delivered in a professional manner, incident-free and ahead of schedule. 


  • Plan, manage and safely complete all tasks associated with the deconstruction of three diesel tanks including the connecting pipe work and ancillary infrastructure.
  • Recycle and correctly dispose of all waste produced from the demolition works.
  • Successfully managed specialist sub-contractors through positive collaboration to complete the tank demolition project in a professional manner and on schedule.
