General Tank Cleaning

Annual cleaning works and repair of piping

Half-yearly standstill production at our customer's premises in the Kempen region. Apart from this standstill, our cleaning department was commissioned to empty and clean a water bassin with an algae and sludge problem.  Also several repair works after cleaning made it a busy period again.

Through a good clear planning, the use of 6 modern cleaning trucks and the necessary toolboxes with our teams, the works will again be carried out safely, professionally and within the set time limit.

GTC concludes a 3-year framework agreement with Total Belgium N.V.

Between TOTAL BELGIUM S.A. and General Tank Cleaning a 3-year framework agreement for maintenance interventions related to the execution of cleaning works and services at Total Depots.

Because of the joint safety policy of both companies, the availability, the competence of the managers and the involvement of the executive staff, this agreement could be realized.

We would like to express our appreciation for the words of praise to our organization of Total employees.
