Fuel Facilities Construction

Fuel Storage Systems in house construction team undertake a variety of fuel facilities installations. Our construction projects are always completed to the highest standards and completed on time including:

  • Concrete bays
  • Concrete tank/generator bases
  • Below ground fuel storage tank installations
  • Class 1 fuel Interceptor installations
  • Tanker stands
  • Brick splash walls 
  • Aco drainage installation and repair 
  • Installing composite manhole covers 
  • Trench work for new or replacement fuel lines
  • Ducting installations for automatic tank gauging
  • Constructing refuelling islands
  • Monitoring wells
  • Installing fencing and constructing compounds 

Fuel Interceptors

Fuel interceptors can be fitted to surface water drainage systems to protect the environment from pollution by oils. They separate the oil from the water, and then retain the oil safely until it is removed and they have non spark composite manhole covers. They are installed to contain oil leaks from vehicles, storage tanks and accidental spillages. To be effective, oil separators need to be correctly designed, installed and maintained.

Surface water may be contaminated by oil at a number of different sites. These sites need to have measures in place to prevent this oil from polluting the environment. These sites include:

  • car parks typically larger than 800m2 in area or for 50 or more car parking spaces.
  • smaller car parks discharging to a sensitive environment.
  • areas where goods vehicles are parked or manoeuvred.
  • vehicle maintenance areas.
  • roads.
  • industrial sites where oil is stored or used.
  • refuelling facilities.
  • any other site with a risk of oil contamination.

Forecourt separators are full retention specified to retain the maximum spillage likely to occur on a petrol forecourt. They are required for both safety and environmental reasons and will treat spillages occurring during vehicle refuelling and road tanker delivery. The size of the separator is increased in order to retain the possible loss of the contents of one compartment of a road tanker, which may be up to 7,600 litres. A fuel interceptor is a must in most cases for fuel facilities construction.

Products & Services

Concrete Bases

Concrete Tank Bases

Fuel Storage Systems can construct reinforced concrete bases to suit any size fuel storage tank or generator set.

Fuel Interceptors

Fuel Interceptor

Class 1 fuel separators are designed to achieve a concentration of less than 5 mg/l of oil under standard test conditions. These separators are required for discharges to surface water drains and the water environment. 

Electrical Chambers

Water Tight Electrical Chambers

We supply and install water tight electrical draw chambers in a variety of sizes to suit any size installation.

Composite Manhole Covers

Composite Manhole Covers

We supply & install heavy duty composite manhole covers in various sizes.

  • Watertight Seal.
  • Integrated lock and lift-point. 
  • Hex non slip surface.
  • Zero scrap value to deter theft. 
  • Suitable for the harshest environments. 
  • Non corroding.
  • Non conductive.
  • Locking and lifting key with each cover.

Draingage Channels

ACO Drainage Channels

 The ACO S range provides excellent hydraulic performance, significantly greater than equivalent 100 mm internal diameter pipes. The ACO S range is an interconnecting heavy duty channel surface water drainage system, that has been designed as the optimum solution to a wide range of Load Class F900 applications.  

  • Quick to install, minimal excavation
  • Resin concrete channel construction is strong and rigid for lifetime integrity
  • Available in a range of widths
  • Heavy duty gratings with eight bolts per metre
