Interesting information about the project

This type of product has unquestionable advantages.

  • First of all: mobility, which is of particular importance in transport to the final location, but also when you need to move the station from one place to another.
  • Secondly, an easy and quick installation.
  • Thirdly, the space requirements for the tank foundation are lower than for a traditional petrol station.
  • Fourthly – we ensure durability, resistance to unfavourable weather conditions and customisable appearance (e.g. colour selection from the RAL chart or attaching stickers prepared as per the Client’s visualisation requirements).
  • Fifthly, the ability to use the product to run a self-service fuel distribution point that does not require staff.

This tank with a dispenser platform and a roof is another project for our client from Norway. It serves as a fuel distribution point on one of the Lofoten Islands. Like many other stations we have delivered to the Scandinavian countries, this one was installed in the immediate vicinity of the shoreline. The salt water and the harsh Norwegian climate are the reasons why the outer wall is protected by a special high-quality anti-corrosion coating. In addition, at the Client’s request, we secured the entire inner wall with a coating of the same properties, while the piping was made of stainless steel.

We installed lighting under the platform roof in order to ensure that the dispensers can be used comfortably also at night. A fuel pump was installed in the cabinet at the tank bottom. The station also comes with additional safety features, such as special railings or an access ladder preventing unauthorised persons from entering the service platform. It is also equipped with a leakage control system by SGB. The tank has two compartments, one for 20,000 litres of diesel fuel and the other for 6,000 litres of gasoline. The station is intended for supplying fuel to both wheeled vehicles and watercraft.
