Carrs Billington Cockermouth Depot
OVERVIEW: Carrs Billington is one of the largest authorised oil distributors in the UK & currently covers the North of England & South of Scotland. We were asked to supply an electronic skid to a new depot as part of an ongoing depot upgrade & development programme. The main goal was to provide fast & safe tanker loading to allow an increase in sales of their fuel products.
SITE: Cockermouth, Cumbria – New build oil distribution depot
IFC SOLUTION:TANKER LOADING SKID – Electronic controlled bottom loading skid with loading arms & meters with flow rates up to 1200 l/min, fitted with the latest 5 point skid safety system.
DEPOT AUTOMATION – MHT TAS, Terminal Automation software. This monitors & controls the fuel stock being loaded through the skid.

Successfully supplied & installed on time & in budget allowing the depot to open before the busy winter period. The new equipment now provides faster tanker loading up to 1200
