Tank Decommissioning – Newlyn Harbour

In July 2018, REDS Group were commissioned to clean, decommission and remove two redundant cylindrical fuel tanks which formed part of Newlyn Harbour wall.

Our confined-space specialists disconnected the tanks and removed any remaining fuel before entering each tank to clean and gas-free.

Project Scope


Once cleaned, the tanks were ready to lift and remove from site which was a complex task given their location…
Running one of the busiest fishing ports in the county will always raise environmental issue or job that need specialist oversight. I must state how impressed I was with REDS GROUP, from the inception of the job right through to completion.
Value for money, great team and most importantly, peace of mind.
