Over thirty thousand BundGuard® units are protecting customer assets, site operators and the environment
The Andel BundGuard® system was first conceived and developed in 1992. A direct response to the UK electricity industry’s growing need for an effective solution for the serious water-removal problems at sub-station sites across the UK.
Since then over thirty thousand BundGuard® units have been installed both nationwide and overseas, protecting customer assets, site operators and the environment.
To be compliant with current UK regulations, all above-ground oil storage tanks that contain more than 200 litres of oil, must have secondary containment or a bund to contain oil leaks and spills. Most bunds are exposed to the elements and consequently are likely to collect and fill with rainwater. As a bund fills with water, the containment capacity is reduced and the risk of oil escaping by overtopping the bund wall in the event of tank failure is greatly increased. It is therefore essential that robust measures are put in place to extract rainwater from exposed bunds.
