Quite often when it comes to the re-fuelling of aircraft, particularly in remote locations, access and convenience can be one of the biggest challenges faced by operators. Thankfully Heysham based Fuel Proof, as well as being a leading manufacturer of diesel storage tanks, have built up an enviable reputation in providing some of the best fuel storage solutions for Avgas and Jet A-1 to the aviation industry.
Fuel storage manufacturer Fuel Proof Ltd has been consulting with its customers in recent years about the growing requirements of AdBlue storage and the challenges this presents. In the following article Fuel Proof looks at what AdBlue actually is and the reasons for its recent surge in prominence.
The Industry Standard for Transporting Fuel
Fuel Proof’s range of highway towable diesel bowsers are the most innovative, secure and reliable products of their type on the market. Reliable, user-friendly and built to last, these units are fully U.N. approved for transporting diesel on the highway. The baffled inner tank ensures excellent stability on the move, and the high quality running gear ensures years of trouble free service.
It’s All Over For Old Diesel Bowsers!
There has been an authorisation in place since 2004 to allow the carriage of certain dangerous goods (UN1202, DIESEL FUEL, GAS OIL, HEATING OIL, LIGHT) in ‘bowsers’.
The purpose of this authorisation was to allow industry time to adapt to new requirements and this 15 year transitional period ends on 9 May 2019.
Essentially, bowsers made prior to 10 May 2004 were authorised to be regarded as an intermediate bulk container (IBC) so long as certain conditions were met.
