EEMUA Publication 154 provides guidance on good practice for the end of life safe demolition of storage tanks and spheres. It would typically be used by a facilities or integrity manager. This guidance is intended to assist the owner in evaluating the acceptability of the demolition methods proposed and the steps necessary to ensure a satisfactory and safe outcome. In the last thirty years many storage tanks have been demolished worldwide. In some cases the owners entered into contracts with demolition contractors without sufficient knowledge of the problems involved. As a consequence a number of serious and sometimes fatal accidents have occurred. EEMUA 154 specifies the minimum responsibilities of the owners of the tank that is being demolished as well as those of the selected contractor.
