Winter fuel and storage tank maintenance

Cold weather can cause problems for everyone, but fleet operators are often hit particularly hard. Heavy snow and ice causes havoc with delivery schedules, with accidents, road closures and breakdowns taking their toll and stretching transport operators to the limit.

But it’s not just on the road where vehicle operators have been affected; on-site maintenance staff have an extremely hard job keeping their vehicles up-and-running – and this is certainly the case when it comes to vehicle refuelling and fuel storage.

Andrew Hargreaves, director of leading fuel storage equipment manufacturer Fuel Proof Ltd, discusses the benefits of storing and managing fuel in-house.

In an effort to reduce costs and improve efficiency, many UK based companies and organisations are investing in an in-house solution for their fuel storage and vehicle refuelling requirements. With so much money being invested in modern fleet vehicles and fuel, the importance of fuel storage and management equipment cannot be overestimated. So what are the main advantages of this approach – and what are the important things to consider beforehand?

5 Key Advantages of Steel Fuel Storage Tanks

When it comes to choosing a new fuel tank there are many factors to consider, including capacity, design, and the type of dispensing equipment the tank is fitted with. One factor that cannot be overlooked is the material the tank is built from. In this respect, all steel tanks offer many advantages over plastic units. Every tank and bowser in our fuel storage range is constructed from steel throughout, and here are the key reasons why:

Fuel Proof’s diesel tanks put to the ultimate test in ‘the coldest journey on earth’

The trek is a record-breaking 2000 mile trek across Antarctica during winter (a first ever trans-arctic winter expedition) is raising millions of pounds for charity and also providing valuable scientific research. The Coldest Journey

With difficult terrain and temperatures dropping as low as -90°C, the project presents a huge test of endurance to both the team and their equipment. Behind the six-man Ice Team on foot will be two bulldozers each hauling giant industrial sledges carrying the teams living quarters, supplies, fuel and a science lab.
