Are you losing fuel? Can you afford not to understand and address risks of these leaks on your sites?

An ever-present threat to operators of older fuel storage facilities with single skin tanks and lines are leaks. Tanks and lines may not fail every day, but the loss of integrity of a fuelling system is difficult to detect due to the fact its underground and out of sight. We have observed from real events that leaks tend to start small but gradually increase over time, so early detection is critical to minimising the impact to the business.

Minimise the impact of costly leaks

Everyone is familiar with the headline news stories where fuel operators have polluted the environment through a fuel spillage or leak, sometimes with serious consequences for local people, property or wildlife. Apart from the cost of clean-up and damage to brand image, often severe fines are imposed. Larger companies can absorb these costs, but for smaller enterprises the effects can be terminal.

It is strongly recommended to protect your business from this threat by implementing measures to detect any leaks as quickly as possible.

Fortunately there are a number of cost-effective ways to achieve this through automation or remote monitoring services.
