Aboveground tanks for LPG or DME

For whom?

Aboveground liquefied gas tanks are dedicated, among others, for:

  • distribution of fuels and autogas (LPG),
  • industrial gas installations, used, inter alia, in in the metal, automotive, construction, metallurgy and other manufacturing industries (LPG),
  • heating installations in residential and public buildings (LPG),
  • entities involved in the production of household chemicals, aerosol cosmetic products and products for construction, such as assembly foams, varnishes and spray paints (DME and LPG).

Regulations specifying the distance between the installation of liquefied gas tanks and buildings, roads, fences and other infrastructure elements mean that they are most often used on plots with larger areas. The advantage of aboveground LPG tanks is that they can also be used in areas with e.g. high groundwater levels. These types of LPG or DME tanks are located on a foundation slab protruding above the ground surface. They can appear individually, as well as in an element of a larger tank park (fuel base).
