It was in 1985 that the first tank cleaning dozer was designed, manufactured and delivered in the United Kingdom. The NESL design and engineering team of today  were the very same people who designed and built the original dozer back in 1985.  

Psst - Click here to take a look at the very first tank cleaning dozer, never mind the machine it is nearly an antique now, but see the young man on the machine, who is he?  you might well ask. Well don't tell him I told you!!  t' is none other than the intrepid Doug Shipton our  Managing Director!



17 years is a long time and over this period there have been many changes as the team have developed a far superior machine. We never say that we now have the final perfect machine, we are always striving to improve and progress technology. In fact nearly every new machine that is built has some small addition or change from the last one. Our engineers are constantly looking for ways of making improvements and take ideas not only from their own experiences on site with customers but also from feedback from our customers.


Here we are in the 8th  month of 2002 and NESL have just completed a NES TANKSWEEP system for export. The system includes 2 Tanksweep hydraulic chambers and nozzles, two EeXd electric powered pumps together with other tank cleaning equipment and pumps including a NES Containerized Manway Cannon. Other recently completed export orders include two NES Mover Tank Cleaning systems delivered to France, and three NES Manway Cannon kits to the USA.  

All of NESL welders are now coded to ASME 9.


In keeping  with NESL policy of technical development and being at the forefront of new innovative and productive equipment, a new purpose built test facility is being constructed at our Swansea factory. An impressive 17 meters high, with a 81 square meters base, 2 upper decks plus the ground floor with recessed pit. On the top roof structure 2 x 10,000 kilos gantry lifts are installed. In our next newsletter see photos of the completed facility together with exciting news of some of NESL new developments.
