The Cost of Failure
Fuel contamination is a common risk when stored during long-periods, yet it only takes a small amount to jeopardise your critical uninterrupted power.
The worrying fact is that some companies aren’t aware of the dangers lurking within their fuel tanks and very few have a certified fuel management programme instead relying on less reliable filtration systems. Operating without robust approach to stored fuel management can have major and long-term repercussions, as demonstrated by the potentially devastating events at the West Bank Pump station illustrated below.
Fuel management doesn’t need to be complicated, costly or time-consuming but its existence is critical to the livelihood of some of the world’s largest corporations. Utilising Mobil fuel testing laboratories, the team at WP Fuel Solutions (WPFS) can provide detailed analysis of current fuel condition and tailor fuel management programmes to individual client requirements.
