In this day and age, it’s really important to be aware of the environment. Many businesses and large industrial companies are now turning to eco-friendly solutions for many of their daily practises in order to cut down on pollution and thus reduce their carbon footprints. This must also be applied to on-site contractors where refuelling is required at regular intervals.
A Better Kind of Fuel Tank
Many companies need to perform work on site, including demolition and building and construction. This necessitates the use of machinery that will need to be refuelled regularly and this is why fuel tanks are used.
These tanks have a capacity to store large quantities of fuel. This fuel can then be used via a hose to refuel machinery and equipment whenever required. The good news is that this doesn’t have to clash with environmental concerns. There are eco-friendly tanks available that prioritise safety and security so that the chances of a spillage or leak are minimised. This ensures that all of the fuel is retained where it needs to be.
Why Are They Used?
So what are the essential benefits of using tanks such as this? Consider the following:
- Convenient On-Site Fuel: The problem with waiting for deliveries of diesel and other fuels is that this can cause significant delays. The fuel in these situations needs to be delivered from an external source and this places pressure on the on-site contractors and also risks an accident happening off site. An on-site fuel tank means that all machinery and equipment can be fuelled when required. It means not having to rely on drivers to deliver the needed fuel from an external source.
- Extra Supply: The beauty of retaining one or more on-site cubes of fuel is that it can cut down costs. This extra supply can be used as a backup and can be filled when fuel prices are low in order to take advantage of the savings.
- Multiple Fuel Ports: These fuel cubes are designed to allow for more than one vehicle to be refuelled at the same time. They can be fitted with multiple hoses so that it saves time and money. This efficiency all adds up and creates a better on-site environment.
- Remote Locations: In this country, there are many remote areas where crews may be working day in and day out. Delivering fuel to these remote locations is very difficult and costly. By having multiple fuel cubes stored on site, this ensures that crew and contractors can refuel whenever they need to and get the job done on time and to budget.
The best fuel cubes are the ones that minimise the risks to the environment and help to create cost savings and time efficiencies on site.
