What is the minimum distance between diesel fuel tank and Diesel generator, also between that tank and transformer?

As I have a situation where fuel tank will be between two diesel generators and transformer "6.6 kV to 400 V", what will be the minimum distance to consider between each and when tank will need protection

 

Tank data as below:

Tank capacity 10,000 lit (2641 gallon), above ground horizontal cylindrical double wall tank, atm. pressure; with vent

 

 flammable & combustible liquids

fuel tank placement

diesel tank
