Photo of the Month January 2019
- 17 January 2019
January 2019’s photo of the month is a little bit different from the other entries in the series. By now we are sure you’re familiar with Bulk Fuel Australia’s proven ability to deliver a dependable supply of diesel fuel to worksites, cars and trucks - but this is a vehicle with more wheels than most.
Pictures here is one of Bulk Fuel Australia’s fleet of fuel delivery trucks refuelling a SCT locomotive. SCT Logistics is Australia’s largest privately-owned rail operator, carrying long loads all around the country every day. The 45 year old company has an established network of locomotives designed to carry freight of all sizes, including refrigerated goods.
While the SCT Logistics prides itself on its use of power-saving techniques like steerable bogies and the use of two engines instead of three, moving these extra-long trains still takes a lot of energy to get moving. This is where Bulk Fuel Australia come in, and our ability to deliver fuel to any point in Australia matches perfectly with SCT Logistics extensive rail network they operate through.
These locomotives are not the type regular commuters will ride on a trip to work. They pack mammoth engines capable of pulling dozens of carriages, each holding multiple containers. Their latest innovation, the SCT Greater Freighter, measures almost six metres tall and is the largest rail van operating in Australia in terms of cubic capacity and operates between Adelaide, Perth and central New South Wales.
Bulk Fuel Australia services every industry imaginable, including rail, marine and construction. In addition to supplying diesel fuel to locomotives, Bulk Fuel Australia have a proven track record of keeping the necessary rail service vehicles and equipment running, too.
