Change in fuel tanks at Polegate petrol station

A CHANGE in fuel tanks is likely to happen at Polegate Service Station in Eastbourne Road, Polegate.

There are four existing underground fuel tanks on site which are at the end of their natural life and need to be replaced for health and safety reasons.

Esso Petroleum Company Ltd would remove two existing tanks (1 x 22,010L and 1 x 35,210L) and strip out pipework.

The remaining two tanks (both 35,210L) would be purged with nitrogeon and foam-filled and left in-situ.

Two new 60,000L double skinned fuel tanks would then be installed.
