CASE STUDY: Located up in New Zealand's North Island is the established Downer NZ bitumen plant. The tanks on this site were in need of an upgrade as they were no longer compliant, check out the solution we provided then through client Z Energy. #tankonsite #downergroup #engineering #bitumentplant #fuelchiefcasestudies #SuperVault
Here is a Fuelchief #SuperVault in the making. You will be able to see the tank on rollers with the fittings exposed. The large fitting is the manhole while the immediate fitting on the right of the manhole is where the emergency vent will sit. Find out why emergency vents are important for above ground fuel tanks here:
HARD AT WORK: Here is a shot from our Bromley office of a #SuperVault 4 hour fire rated fuel tank in the process of being made for one of our power generation clients. This is a cylindrical model tank, ideal for data centres and commercial projects were budget and space does not allow for a fire rated room. The benefits environmental of making the preferred SuperVault choice, well outweigh going underground. Find out more in our article via the link.
CUSTOMISING FOR CLIENTS: Here is footage from our Bromley HQ of a Fuelchief SuperVault (one in a series of 3) for our client Petrotec.

At Fuelchief we get approached for a variety of fuel storage solutions, from traditional round fuel tanks to farm tanks and ute tanks. More and more we get approached by #engineers who require custom configured tanks to meet room requirements of newly designed buildings. The fuel source, although crucial, sometimes in the project becomes the after thought. We have put this handy white paper together around best practice when back-up power is needed for commercial building projects.
CITIBANK'S CRITICAL POWER SUPERVAULT: #powergeneration is a core facet of our ever technology-driven world, the generators that produce this power are fuelled by diesel and this is where Fuelchief can help.

Multi Hazard Testing: You may have seen our posts last week that briefly gave an overview of what tests are conducted for #multihazard testing when it comes to Above Ground Fuel Tanks. Here we put everything together and delve a little deeper into the nitty gritty of exactly what is involved and why these rigorous tests are needed to create the #SuperVault fuel tank for your projects. #engineers #projectmanagers #highrisebuildings #fuelstorage #powergeneration #multihazardtesting
The 4th and final test conducted on the #SuperVault was the Heavy Vehicle Impact Test. In this final test of the controlled tank, it was subject to being hit by a 12,000lb (5,443kg) battering ram travelling at 10 miles per/hour (16km/hour). That concludes the thorough testing done on the Fuelchief SuperVault tank.
Continuing our Southwest Research Institute multi-hazard testing information on our #SuperVault test series for SwRI 95-03 is the Hose Stream Resistance Test, which occurred immediately after the fire test, took place whereby a high-power pressured hose was used to shoot water at the tank for an allocated time frame. The SuperVault successfully passed this test too and tomorrow we move to multi-hazard test 3. #multihazardtest #fuelchief #SuperVault #fireratedtank #bulkfuelstorage
This week we will share the 4 hazard tests that the #SuperVault has had to endure to remain the superior choice for compliant fuel tanks for industries. The multi-hazard test was carried out on a single tank, in controlled conditions at the South West Research Institute (SWRI) California. Hazard Test 1 - is the 4-hour, 2,000 degree fire test, where the internal temperature of the tank did not exceed 165 degrees.
TANK ON SITE: Great shot from our collaboration with ECL on a #SuperVault for Citibank's offices in Auckland. A 4-hour fire rated SuperVault which is commissioned to support the Kohler generator (visible). The tank shown is a SuperVault Rectangular Series SVR-499 and is ideal as a back up generator source. Not only is it compliant with an SwRI 95-03 rating, but it is environmentally friendly and the only tank in the world that can be re-furbished and re-used after an earthquake or impact.
BEFORE AND AFTER: What a difference! These photos are exactly a month apart. On the left you will see a non-compliant 20,000L kerosene and diesel tank that was removed for our client Downer, and replaced with a 5,000L 4-hour fire rated #SuperVault for the Kerosene and a 10,000L #DCSeries tank for the diesel. If you are after a compliant solution for old, rickety, non-compliant fuel tanks then we are here #tankonsite #fuelchieftankonsite #engineers #bulkfuelstorage #projectdevelopers
CASE STUDY: Infrastructure and growth continue to be one of the core building blocks for economies. Infrastructure standards have developed overtime to ensure buildings are equipped and safe for those who work in and around them. In Porirua (New Zealand's North Island) the need to meet critical infrastructure standards was challenged and led to Spark upgrading their original 1980's building.

INSULATION: One of the crucial steps to ensure that our SuperVault tank meets compliance for it's 4-hour fire rating is to ensure it has been insulated. We will be sharing an article in the future about what insulation does for a SuperVault tank and why it is important. Here is one set up in our yard for the insulation process. Find out why insisting on SwRI 95-03 is vital for your fire rated tank via the link. #compliance #fuelstorage #SuperVault #insulation #datacentres #powergeneration
