  • ISO tank containers are predominately manufactured from 316 or 304 stainless steel, for ease of cleaning

Containerised above ground storage tanks (double walled)

Container Options offers a range self bunded tank containers that are designed for the storage or transport of hydrocarbons, including fuels and lubricants. All are containerised for intermodal transport and convenient relocation, and are available in capacities ranging from 10,000l to 100,000l.

Container Options also supplies special purpose baffled self bunded pressure vessel tanks that can be utilised for transport or storage of hydrocarbons, such as heavy fuel oils or transformer oils. These tanks do not need to be emptied prior to transporting.

Stainless steel self bunded tanks for storage and dispensing of aviation fuels and chemicals are also available.

Self bunded tank containers from Container Options have many years of design and experience behind them resulting in beneficial features, including:

  • Sloped floors to low point for drainage and water management
  • Clean internal lines and rounded corners to eliminate stress points and facilitate maintenance and cleaning
  • Roof designs that allow water run off with no gutters or ponding points
  • Structural components made from 350Mpa weathering steel for strength and corrosion-resistance
  • Fill and suction points that enter through the roof, not the wall, improving safe fill levels and eliminating the most common corrosion point in many containerised designs
  • Can be transported empty as a standard CSC registered container
  • Factory customisation is readily available with compartments, sumps, dewatering tubes, epoxy linings, floating suctions and full stainless internals to suit a wide variety of fuels, oils and related chemicals

Half height and bulk containers

Container Options supplies specialised dry cargo containers domestically and internationally.

The company’s range of specialised dry cargo containers is broad, with a large number of configurations and adaptations to fit shipping and operational requirements.

Half height containers are designed to transport heavy products, such as mineral sands and concentrates. Numerous variations can be supplied to suit the products to be transported, e.g. soft or hard-top removable roofs, drop down ramps and removable door headers for easy access for loading and un-loading.

Bulk containers are designed to transport bulk powder or granular products. Loading hatches are generally fitted on the roof, which allows loading via silo. Either the door and/or front wall hatches can be fitted for un-loading. The flat steel internal walls and floor assist with discharge and reduce the amount of product hang up.
