Excavation Project Kept On Track With 210,000 Litre Storage System


ACS Construction, a building and civil engineering contractor, was assigned to provide a safe excavation around a high pressure gas pipeline at the National Grid Partington AGI (Above Ground Installation). The system originally in place to handle the 6,000 litres/hour of hydrocarbon-contaminated water proved inefficient. Two 30,000 litre road barrels were not draining in a timely manner, and brought the project to a stop.


Rain for Rent was called to replace the old system and provided three 70 m3 storage tanks. Rain for Rent and Mantank, an environmental services company, partnered to empty the tanks on a frequent basis, ensuring the continuation of the project.


  • Three tanks were mobilised within less than 12 hours.
  • A total capacity of 210,000 litres kept the primary project running.
  • The Rain for Rent International team served the customer’s needs within an extremely quick turnaround, from the initial call to mobilising and delivering the tanks to the project site.


ACS Construction was pleased with Rain for Rent International’s responsiveness and ability to offer a solution to their problem in a timely and efficient manner. Mantank’s confidence in Rain for Rent International was assured and plans to use the company for future projects.
