Leakage from storage tanks may lead to extensive environmental pollution and be a financial loss to owners. This guide addresses the problem of tank leakage caused by loss of integrity. Such loss is almost always caused by deterioration of the tank bottom, which itself may be caused by corrosion or by deterioration of the foundation. This second edition is a comprehensive update that takes account of changes in standards, regulations and improvements in technology. EEMUA 183 gives guidance on a range of topics affecting tank bottom integrity including: design considerations for various types of tank foundations and bottoms; causes of tank bottom leakage; inspection records and techniques; corrosion protection; leak detection systems; and membranes as soil barriers.

EEMUA also offers introductory e-learning in the area of Storage Tanks in both Dutch and English language versions.
