The Electrical Components of Storage Tank Installation

February 18, 2016 | Posted in Blog

When installing a storage tank, the job doesn’t end once the tank has been set into the ground. Storage tanks must be grounded and require the installation of electrical wiring and control systems before they’ll be fully functional. While many storage tank suppliers outsource this crucial component of storage tank installation, at Tanks Direct we are proud to offer staff dedicated to the installation of electrical components. Learn more about the electrical installation requirements of storage tanks and why Tanks Direct is the best choice to complete your project, below.

At Tanks Direct, we firmly believe in the importance of providing turn-key storage tanks, which requires us to be able to manage the installation from start to finish, including electrical work. Our crew can wire your storage tank to ensure that it will work efficiently and correctly. Before beginning any installation job, we conduct a pre-construction meeting where we determine the end-to-end needs of the project in order to prevent any gaps in scope.

We have found that when work is contracted out, it is common for miscommunications to arise between tradesmen which can compromise the effectiveness of your installation. When you trust separate contractors to handle the installation of electrical wiring and controls, for example, there is a risk that a miscommunication would result in neither contractor installing a fuel oil conduit system or the interlock control wiring system. The best way to prevent this type of error is to trust a single company to conduct every aspect of your installation process. At Tanks Direct, we are proud to say we have the skills and expertise to do so reliably and affordably. We can also assist you in coordinating various trades to ensure clear and streamlined communications.
