Acumen provides a comprehensive cleaning, decommissioning and decontamination service to a wide range of industries through its expert Industrial Site Services Division operating anywhere in the UK.

Acumen’s Industrial Services Division provide specialist cleaning, decommissioning and decontamination solutions to a wide range of industries operating throughout the UK.

Tank cleaning

Acumen Waste Services  are a leading  provider of Industrial Services. We specialise in professional tank cleaning services, with all site activities being carried out by our in-house team of trained operatives and supervisors. We use the latest plant and equipment to carry out tasks efficiently and effectively.

We were one of the first companies in the UK to execute tank cleaning projects using remote “non-man” entry tank cleaning, and high-pressure scouring systems to clean the internal surfaces of storage vessels, preventing the need for our men to work in hazardous confined spaces.

Decontamination and Decommissioning

Our expert team of problem solvers have been involved in many high profile landmark projects and bespoke design services for the remediation of high hazard contaminants from a wide variety of situations. These decontamination services, all undertaken by our in-house trained personnel under the guidance of a nominated project manager include decommissioning of chemical weapons inventories, high hazard industrial process chemicals and chemical process plant itself.

On-site waste treatment services

We provide comprehensive on-site waste treatment technologies including waste reduction and materials recovery using dewatering and mobile filter pressing, using advanced equipment to reduce or eliminate the need to take waste from site. Our large scale, nationwide capabilities allow us to carry out projects at any location and we can treat a very wide range of materials including process chemicals, effluent materials and sludge. All these services can be delivered as part of larger one-off bespoke projects
