Description of Project
Design, supply, install and commissioning of a new refuelling system at Etches Park depot in Derby. The value of this project was £1.15m.
The system included both rail and road off-loading systems, 400,000 litres of new fuel storage, a new fuel pump room, a new fully automatic control system, and new dispensing lines connected to both existing and new fuel dispensers.
As this was a fully operational depot with an ongoing requirement to fuel each night, the commissioning changeover onto the new system had to be staged over many weeks, with all necessary temporary works such that the depot’s ability to fully re-fuel each night was not affected in any way.
