US Container Depot, in partnership with Extreme Tank Cleaning, recently opened a commercial tank wash in Newark NJ to service the tank container and liquid bulk tank trailer community in the New Jersey area.
“Whether private or commercial, there have not been enough tank wash facilities in northern New Jersey for years,” said Kevin Jackson, president of US Container Depot and Liquid Cargo. “The added capacity, along with the high-pressure wash system to reduce cleaning time, should significantly improve the turn times for tank containers and tank trailers.
“We have partnered with an experienced and qualified service provider in Extreme Tank Cleaning. Joe Bamber, owner of Extreme Tank Cleaning, brings over 10 years of experience in the tank cleaning industry—and the necessary supervision to ensure the high-level quality and service we are known for.”
The tank wash facility will have two tank wash bays and, in addition to standard washing protocol, will utilize a high-pressure pump to increase cleaning capabilities. The high-pressure cleaning system reduces time and waste water, the company claimed.
In addition, the facility will have a three-bay shop for tank container prep and maintenance, and will be capable of storing approximately 300 empty tank containers in the yard. While the yard and facility will primarily cater to the tank container community, there will be limited capacity to wash outside tank trailers based on availability.
US Container and Extreme Tank plan to host a grand opening from 11 am to 2 pm Oct 17 at the new facility, which is located at 62 Joseph St.
