New skid for County Oils

County Oils bottom loading skid
County Oils’ new bottom loading skid supplied by Alpeco
County Oils has had a new bottom loading skid installed by Alpeco at its depot in Sutton Weaver, near Runcorn.
The design was finalised after a comprehensive brief from County Oils managing director, Neil Musgrave. Retention of the existing top load bay was critical to the project so that County Oils could continue to use two older but very useful mini tankers that could not be adapted for bottom loading.
The new 3 arm loading skid was configured for loading rated of 900 lpm through either bottom loading arms or via the existing top loading arms. A Contrec 1010 register monitors and controls simultaneous loading of up to 3 loading arms.
Neil Musgrave said: “We were extremely pleased with the way in which Alpeco responded to our requirements and the speed and efficiency with which the skid was installed. Our site was only out of action for two and a half days.”
The County Group also purchased two new tankers from Road Tankers Northern in 2011, both of which were fully equipped with Alpeco bottom load systems and TE550 electronic metering equipment.
