Tank Cleaning

Since 1994, Accurate Marine Environmental, a Titan company, has performed bilge and tank cleaning, gas freeing, fuel and contaminated water removal primarily as a major subcontractor to holders of Master Ship Repair Agreements (MSRA) and Agreement for Boat Repair (ABR) in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

The vast majority of our experience, and by far the largest most complex work we have performed, has been on board U.S. Navy Vessels. However, we have supported contracts for the Department of Defense, the U.S. Coast Guard, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD), Military Sea Lift Command, oil storage facilities, oil refineries, and a variety of commercial entities.

Accurate Marine Environmental has U.S. Coast Guard issued permits to operate in eleven Captain of The Port zones (COTP) . These zones are: Hampton Roads, Baltimore, New York/New Jersey, Boston, Wilmington NC, Mobile AL, Cape Canaveral, Savannah, Charleston, Tampa and Jacksonville FL. We have developed Mobile Oil Transfer Facility (MOTF) manuals and Response Plans which allow for the safe transfer of petroleum based products and chemicals from ship to shore.

Accurate Marine Environmental, a Titan company, possesses a large array of pumping equipment to conduct transfers of hazardous products and high viscous oils. Our hydraulic driven high-capacity pumps can safely deliver petroleum products at rates of 300 to 1000 gpm.

We clean an assortment of tanks of different sizes and configurations. Cold, hot water or steam cleaning is performed either by hand by a professional well trained labor force or by the use of a butterworth process where machines with rotating nozzles under high pressure blast the product off the walls, tanktops, supports and floors. Contact us and we will provide you with the best cost effective method to clean your tanks.
