HVO Fuel storage is similar to the storage of standard road or green diesel. Our range of tanks and pumping equipment are all fully compatible with HVO.
What is HVO
Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) is considered a renewable diesel, which is increasing in popularity as a replacement for standard road diesel. HVO is formulated by hydrotreating waste and sustainable materials, It’s use is widely considered to be a greener and more sustainable fuel as HVO provides a reduction in carbon emissions compared to standard road diesel.
The benefits of HVO:
- Reduces carbon emissions
- Direct replacement for diesel
- Excellent performance in both cold & warm conditions
- Improved safety, storage and handling compared to standard road diesel
Storage of HVO
Storage of HVO is no different than it is to standard road diesel. If there is currently a bunded tank in place with pumping equipment, then it is highly likely that the existing equipment will be compatible with HVO, should you choose to switch fuels. If you require any recommendations on any existing system. we are on hand to offer our technical advice to ensure you get the most out of your system.
Our range of new tanks & pumps have all been proven and tested with the use of HVO, so you can rest assured that you are getting a quality service capable of meeting your requirements and standards.
Bunded Steel Tanks
Provide a very secure and long lasting solution for HVO fuel storage. We offer a range of bunded steel tank sizes from as little as 900 litres up to 100,000 litres, depending on your requirements. As well as having steel tanks in stock, we can also provide options for bespoke custom made tanks, where specific requests can be factored into the production of the tank such as integrated pump cabinets with roller shutter doors.
We also offer a limited number of refurbished steel tanks from time to time.
Steel Tank Advantages
Longevity – With a long lifespan and highly durable design, steel tanks are the ideal choice for a long term solution & can withstand much harsher conditions.
Security – Bunded steel tanks are manufactured with two skins using 3 – 4mm thick steel, providing unrivalled security.
Flexibility – Steel tanks can be easily relocated if required, most of our tanks come as standard with lifting points or fork access points allowing the tanks to be re-positioned with ease.
Bunded Plastic Tanks
Provide an extremely versatile and convenient storage solution for HVO. In recent years plastic tanks have become increasing popular due to availability & cost in comparison with steel tanks.
Each plastic tank in our range is fully compatible with HVO, with sizes ranging from 650 litres up to 9,250 litres.
Plastic tanks come in various configurations such as tank only, tanks with integrated cabinets and tanks with external cabinets. Each has their own benefits depending on what is required.
Plastic Tank Options
Bottom outlet – come with a 1″ bottom outlet and are ideally used where pumps need to be mounted externally or at a distance from the tank.
Integrated Cabinet – Tanks such as the 1,350 or 2,500 litre come with an integrated pump cabinet, which is confined within the overall dimensions of the tank.
External Cabinet – Larger Plastic tanks come with an external pump cabinet, which is ideal for housing the pumping equipment.
A Bunded tank is essentially a tank within a tank. This ensures that if anything should happen to either tank the fuel remains safe. A Bunded tank is designed to hold the entire contents of the inner tank in the outer tank also, so there is no fear of any losses or contamination to surrounding areas should an incident occur. Bunded tanks are a requirement in most installations as of 2023 and our full range of bulk storage tanks both plastic and steel come fully bunded.
