Industry and chemical industy

With the advent of the Dutch BARIM / RARIM (Decision General Rules for Installations Environment / Regulations General Rules for Installations Environment) much more new constructions of (tank)installation facilities have to be constructed in accordance with the Kiwa BRL K903 and/or PGS28 and/or PGS30, or PGS 31 (in development). Existing aboveground tank installations will often have to be reclassified according to sub-area 15 or 16 from the BRL K903 (formerly the KC111). The relevant guidelines and regulations can be downloaded on this Website.

For the industry and chemical industry you can think about under-and aboveground storage tank installations for example, for the following liquids:

toluene, printing inks, paints and thinners, pentane, heptane, styrene, polyester (resin), methylene chloride, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), estasol, emultex, formaldehyde, all kinds of acids and alkalis, aluminum chloride, ferric chloride and ferrous sulphate, sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, acetic acid, chlorine, hexane, condensate, (bio) ethanol and methanol, Brenttaplus VP1, tetrathydrothiofeen, N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone, Picric acid, acrolein, ethylene oxide, acetone, hydrogen cyanide, chloroform, phenol, hydrogen peroxide, methyl ethyl ketone, mineral spirits, solvent, windscreen washer anti-freeze, ethanol solutions, waste oil, glycol, brake fluid, hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide, sulfuric, nitric, smit acid, salt solutions (NaCl), urea, ammonia, isopropyl alcohol, gasoline, diesel, kerosene (petroleum), oil, red diesel , brake fluid, forming oil, pure vegetable oil, hydraulic oil, glycol, fuel oil, kerosene, F34 and other kinds of (environmentally hazardous) liquids used in industry and chemical industry used and stored in tank installations.

Through our years of experience in underground and above ground (tank) systems, as well as our expertise in the field of legislation, we know better than anyone else how to put these two factors together, which ultimately will lead to a practical solution for You as a customer. Together with you we look at the problem, making it a more thorough analysis, and a plan of action and often a design review with Risk Assessment and Evaluation will be prepared, as guidance the procedure from the PBV document P107776 "Directive tank systems for liquids and vapors underground and above ground " will be followed. We provide the approval on the design of the tank installations, made by Kiwa and the licensing authority (authority), after which eventually the required installation certificate of the built tank installations, in accordance with Kiwa BRL K903/08, will be issued.

For your existing underground tank installations we provide, in addition to annual inspections, also the periodic 5-/10-/15 - respectively 20 annual complete (re)testing and inspections.

If your existing aboveground tank installation, whether or not deviating from the guidelines, are ready for a reclassification or re-examination, often a review will take place in accordance with the assessment criteria KC111 (Subarea 15 and 16 out of the BRL-K903/08), then you are also at the correct address with us.

We offer you the guarantee to be a professional partner which you can count to the specialist, in terms of laws and regulations, technological developments, quality and security in the (petro-)chemical tank installation industry.
