Underground tanks for LPG or DME

For whom?

Underground tanks for liquefied gas can be used, among others:

  • at petrol stations and autogas (LPG) distribution
  • in production failities from various industries, (LPG / DME)
  • in facilities related to agriculture, e.g. tank installations for animal farms, grain dryers, as well as for temporary protection of crops in greenhouses and foil tunnels against sudden frosts, etc. (LPG)
  • on the premises of individual users and the area of investments prepared by development companies for end customers (e.g. housing estates powered by a base of underground LPG tanks)

Requirements for the distance from building structures or roads are less restrictive than those for overground LPG and DME tanks. For this reason, underground LPG tanks can be located on plots of land with a smaller area than in the case of above-ground tanks. Additionally, deciding on an underground DME or LPG tank, the recipient gains the possibility of any arrangement development of the plot. LPG or DME tanks can be located in a green area. They cannot transfer overloads from driving and communication roads.
