In 2020, Rockaway National was on-site in South Amboy, New Jersey with the responsibility to tear down oil tanks that were no longer in commission and had been pushed off of their bases. After confirming with the property owner that all tanks have been properly cleaned out, we mobilized our crew and began the work. With a foam exterior on the tanks, our team was able to use machines to strip off the insulation and recycle it according to local guidelines.
The tanks were then cut open so we could safely and properly collapse the tanks into themselves as power lines and exterior walls were very close on 2 of 4 sides. After collapsing the tanks by using torch work we were able to use shears to cut them up and transport/recycle them offsite.
