Depot upgrade projects for K9 Fuels oil distribution
Client: K9 fuels are a successful, independent, family owned oil distributor, supplying domestic and commercial heating oil throughout Lincolnshire and beyond for over 9 years. They approached IFC to help them with a new depot upgrade project.
Site: Oil distribution depot in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire
Overview: K9 Fuels recently built a brand new oil distribution depot and as part of the investment they wanted to store product on site, which would help them increase the high level of service they already provided delivering heating oil and commercial/agricultural fuel to their customers in Lincolnshire.
IFC’s Solution: The client bought three brand new fully bunded storage tanks and IFC provided a full design, manufacture and installation solution incorporating our electronic bottom loading skid, a tank off-set fill point cabinet, an electronic tank gauge system for three tanks with remote web access and all the on site electrical and mechanical pipework. Our industry leading ADEP80 electronic bottom loading skid, fitted with our range of Acuflow high accuracy bulk flow meters, petro-load bottom loading arms and our five point safety system was at the heart of the supply. Our experienced installation team ensured the equipment was all installed within the agreed timescales and was commissioned and running within five days of the project starting.
Project Outcome: The project was delivered and installed on time and within the clients requirements. The site is now loading all its tankers through the skid, which has greatly increased the amount of time the vehicles can spend on the road delivering to customers.
Project Feedback: Ken Shingdia, owner of K9 Fuels commended IFC: “Once the decision was made by us to install the IFC Loading Skid, everything was plain sailing. From quotation, surveys, plans approval, time schedules through to the final installation. The Skid has now been in use for nearly 6 months and there has been no need for any technical support. I would not hesitate to recommend the all round service.”
