Tank Removal & Installation

A Single Source Approach to Tank Management

The Cannington Group can handle all aspects of AST and UST removals, ranging from cleanup of contaminated materials to replacement and upgrades. This single source approach to tank management gives our clients the benefits of convenience and cost savings.

As Petroleum Mechanical licensed contractors, we are able to complete this work in full compliance of the governing TSSA requirements. This is an important consideration for our clients who are looking to complete equipment upgrades as efficiently as possible with minimal disruption to their operation. This reduces the need for third party testing, calibrations, certifications or other work required to commission or decommission a system.

Complete Turn-Key Fueling Systems

We can offer complete turn key fueling systems ideally suited for fleet owners, marina operations or industrial/commercial applications which includes all site preparation work, above ground tanks, card lock systems and dispensers all installed to your specification.
