Maintenance of fuel equipment and fuel storage tanks


Planned MaintenancePlanned Maintenance of Fuel Storage and Fuel Dispensing Equipment

It is necessary to service a fuel installation in the same way as it is necessary to service a vehicle. Over the course of a year components on fuel dispensers can fail, meters and gauges become inaccurate and small leaks can appear in pipe work systems.

The cost of a leak going unnoticed can run to tens of thousands of pounds in clean up costs, not including fines levied on offending companies or their Directors.

We address these issues by undertaking a multi part check of the whole fuel installation. This can be done annually for low volume users or six monthly for high volume users.
