Heating oil plant Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

If you decide to build and operate a heating oil plant or shut down an existing plant, a notification will be required with the Lower Water Authority of your county or county-free city. You can see: the construction and operation of underground installations, the construction and operation of above-ground facilities within water and healing spring protection areas ("upper ground" is also a storage in the basement of a building.) the construction and operation of above-ground installations with a content of 1,000 litres of heating oil outside water and healing water and healing areas, all significant changes to the system and operation (e.g. installation of an inner shell) Decommissioning of the plant If your plant has more than 10,000 litres of content, a building permit is required. In the vicinity of cultural or natural monuments, this applies as early as 5,000 l of heating oil. In the case of larger commercial installations, an immission permit may instead be required. There is no obligation to notify in these cases.

Required documents are: Description of the installation (above ground (e.g. in the basement) or earth tank, single-walled/double-walled, storage quantity, etc.), building law evidence of the usability for heating oil storage (performance description for CE-marked plant parts, designation of the DIN standard or general building inspection approvals), Proof of the retention volume (size of the reception area), unless double-walled, Information on the contracted specialist company, further documentation/requirements may be required for commercial plants (e.g. filling stations).
