Fuel Storage Tanks: When compared to other fuel storage options, such as steel, flexible tanks can offer advantages in terms of both shipping and storage capacities. While typical steel tanks require shipping of the entire unit to your location, flexible units allow the tank to be folded up when transported. This means that even tanks as large as 50,000 gallons can be folded up for more compact and economical shipping to your location.

Fuel Storage Tank Construction
Construction for the fuel storage tanks features the use of several different robust fabrics chosen based on the liquid you will be storing in the tank and the location where the tank will be stored. Different fabrics may be required for short term storage (up to 1 year), long term storage (up to 7 years), extremely hot climates or extremely cold climates. Depending your location, a ground cloth may also be used to help further protect your tank from abrasion.
