Photo of the Month: Above ground refuelling for primary producers
- 21 May 2019
Our Photo of the Month is back! We love to highlight the fantastic work our team does around the country, refuelling trucks, fuel tanks, trains and more.
In the previous months we’ve seen our team refuelling plenty of locomotives including a fresh diesel supply for SCT Logistics and a bulk delivery of Final Filtered Diesel for a Chicago Freight Australia GL Class locomotive.
This month’s photo comes from Truck 87 sees our team member going to new heights to refuel an above ground fuel tank for one of our primary producer clients in NSW.
Storing fuel for farmers
Agriculture is big business, contributing $10 billion to the Australian economy each year. Yet, 90% of farms are family owned, run by one or two people, who contribute half of the nation’s produce.
One of the first bulk fuel tank options for farmers were above-ground storage tanks on a tripod stand. They’re just as cost-effective as ever and designed to hold up to 2,000 litres. Refuelling these tanks is no easy task, with refuellers needing to ensure the structural integrity and have three points of contact during the process.
Of course, there are other fuel tank options for farmers depending on their requirements, including self-bunded above ground fuel tanks and underground storage solutions. We’ve got a great guide to fuel tanks for farmers to help you decide on a fuel tank for your practice!
Bulk Fuel Australia offer fuel tanks, which are fully compliant with Australian Standards AS1940, EPA, and OH&S regulations. We also safely deliver bulk diesel fuel Australia-wide, to help reduce farm down time and ensure a positive return on investment. Our bulk fuel can be used independently or as part of a comprehensive on-site fuel management solution. Contact us on 1300 57 9990 for more information.
