Stanley Services selects SuperVault

Manufactured by Ledbury Welding, the 10,000 litre SuperVault petrol storage tank with associated dispensing equipment is now on route to Fox Bay Village in the Falkland Islands.
The contract was awarded by Stanley Services, which provides fuel to both the domestic population of the Falkland Islands and the fishing fleet operating in the waters near and around the islands.
“This new above ground facility, which will be located alongside existing diesel storage facilities,  will allow our customers on West Falkland to collect petrol  by way of a self–service account in a very straightforward and easy manner and saves them having to store highly inflammable product in 205 litre barrels,” said Tom Swales, managing director of Stanley Services.
“We won this order against a competitive bid,” said LWE managing director, Kevin Powell.
“We believe that a deciding factor was the integrity of our SuperVault technology which has been designed to pass rigorous fire and multiple–hazard test requirements.
“The tank is self-bunded (in excess of 110% of the nominal capacity) to ensure secondary containment. Its design features a steel inner and outer tanks and the cavity is filled with a specially formulated cement-based, lightweight insulation.”
