    What is a self bunded fuel tank? Self Bunded Diesel Fuel Tanks

    Storing large volumes of petroleum-based liquids on site is an effective way, to keep costs down and maximise the efficiency within your business.

    A self bunded tank, otherwise known as double-wall fuel tanks, or bunded fuel tanks, offer the most effective solution to the clean, safe, and economical storage of bulk liquids.

    A self bunded tank, by definition, is a tank within a tank. The inner tank serves as the storage cell for the fuel and the outer tank serves as the spill or leak containment system. This is otherwise known as the 'bund'. 

    The space between the inner and outer tanks serves as the bund, and is 110% of the capacity of the inner tank eliminating the need for an external spill containment system as an overfill accident is very unlikely to occur. This renders self bunded tanks as one of the most environmentally friendly bulk liquid storage options, as the risk of pollution is mitigated.

    Get your fuel to where you need it when you need it. Self Bunded Fuel Storage tanks can be moved at your convenience, wherever you need a reliable fuel source. Some variations of double wall fuel tanks, such as our fully baffled Cube Range can be moved while full of fuel and even stacked for convenient storage.


    The customisation options for Self Bunded Tanks are endless and can be tweaked to suit your operation, application, and budget. For example, if your business operates in the road transport sector and requires an on-site refuelling facility for its trucks, a large capacity self bunded tank with high-flow components would be appropriate. Installation and setup are effortless, with additional accessories such as iPETRO Fluids Management, the next generation of fuel management systems.

    Containerised bulk fuel storage tanks like our PT and LT series can be linked to form a self bunded, modular tank farm. Tank farms offer a clever, above-ground bulk fuel storage solution that will keep your operation up and running. Read about how a tank farm solution can scale with your business today!


    PETRO Self Bunded Tanks are built to be bought once. Self bunded tanks are designed to stand the test of time with durable, double-wall steel construction in order to keep your liquid in and keep any contaminants out. A self bunded tank is a perfect solution to the storage of petrochemical liquids in areas where the environment is particularly sensitive, such as maritime or remote settings. These locations are protected by the double-wall tank's hardy design, which can withstand all weather conditions.


    Store bulk quantities of fuel on-site, within easy reach of your machinery. Not only are you saving time and money by enabling your machinery to be refuelled onsite, but you can also take advantage of bulk purchase fuel prices. This saves your business time and increases revenue as your machinery can operate more consistently. Unlike underground refuelling setups, a self bunded tank can simply be dropped onsite and with minimal setup time, your fleet has a reliable fuel source.
