A jury at St Albans’ Crown Court today found TAV Engineering Ltd guilty of failing to protect workers and members of the public following an investigation into the explosion and fire at Buncefield Oil Storage Depot on 11 December 2005. Motherwell Control Systems 2003 Ltd was found guilty earlier this week of the same charge.

Earlier this week Hertfordshire Oil Storage Limited was found guilty of failing to prevent major accidents and limit their effects. Today they also pleaded guilty to causing pollution to enter controlled waters underlying the vicinity around Buncefield.
