Tank farm open day

Last week Certas Energy opened the doors of its Livingston warehouse in West Lothian to existing and prospective customers and local businesses.

The 33,000 sq ft hub has been opened just under a year and as well as a huge warehouse facility, the new site features a specifically designed tank farm, with a 150,000 litre storage capacity, as well as holding in excess of 2000 pallets.

“We wanted to demonstrate and guide visitors through the bulk facilities offered at our new depot,” said Andrew Salton general manager, Certas Energy North.

“Perhaps the most important part of our operations is our lubricant farm; we went to one of the best fuel tank manufacturers in the UK – the Blake Group – who were invaluable in helping us achieve our goals. The unique design and set-up of the tanks ensures we eliminate contamination, as well as having total control of oil in/out of the tanks with millilitre accuracy.”

Certas is responsible for several market-leading lubricant brands including Shell, Castrol, Gulf, Valvoline and Total, which meet the requirements of every major sector, including agricultural, automotive, commercial, manufacturing, industrial, haulage, marine and aviation.
