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.
Just recently Fuel Proof built a bespoke 50,000 litre tank for a helicopter station in the Outer Hebrides. As you can imagine this was a quite a technical undertaking, not least because of the size of the tank and the remote location, but also because of the requirements of the fuel and dispensing equipment needed.
Fuel Proofs premium bulk aviation tanks are often considered to be unrivalled within the aviation industry and are the flagship product in their aviation fuel storage range. Utilising the latest in design and manufacturing technologies, the tanks are equipped with an extensive list of unique and innovative features and are fitted with high quality fuel dispensing equipment to give reliability and usability.
Available in capacities from 3,000 to 85,000 litres, their key features include a double cylinder design with all-steel construction, are 110% bunded with a stainless steel inner tank, high security specification, an industry leading warranty and are built in accordance with CAA guidelines and JIG for aircraft re-fuelling equipment.
Fuel Proof has found that by offering bulk storage tanks they allow customers to take control of their own refuelling needs. By having the convenience of their own tank they can often gain savings in fuel cost and flexibility to operations.
As well as offering bulk aviation tanks, Fuel Proof also manufactures a variety of other aviation storage tanks to suit the needs of a range of customers in the aviation industry. Static aviation tanks, for example, come in a range of sizes from 990 to 2,000 litres and are ideally suited to small-to-medium scale refuelling applications, such as airfields and flying clubs.
And for those customers needing a mobile refuelling solution, Fuel Proof produce bowsers in capacities from 1,000 to 10,000 litres which are designed specifically for being towed directly to the location the aircraft needs refuelling at.
Fuel Proof’s exacting standards, where each product is constantly checked throughout the manufacturing process, means they provide not only the highest quality fuel storage equipment but also provide a consistently high level of support and assistance for the life of the equipment.
