Rapid Readymix provides fast, effective and affordable concrete and pumping services to clients in London, Surrey and the South East.
From the first contact with The Triscan Group, Rapid Readymix were allocated a dedicated, PRINCE2® accredited, project manager. The two companies worked together to find the best layout, tank design and system for the site. In this instance, the pump house (cabinet) was set inside a bespoke 15,000-litre fully bunded split diesel and gas oil tank allowing it to be installed underneath a mezzanine floor to ensure no loss of yard space.
To save valuable time, the bunded tank arrived on site with a pre-installed Zeon twin pump and all associated wiring. This high-quality ATEX approved pump was then commissioned and connected to Triscan’s elite fuel island controller, the Apollo 2™. The only site requirement was the provision of a mains electrical supply and Triscan took care of the delivery, offload and intricate positioning.
Developed in house, Triscan’s Apollo 2™ offers the most flexible management of authorising access to fuel, capturing odometer data at the fuel island or automatically transferring the data to the system by an on-board vehicle device or imports from third-party systems. The Apollo 2™ seamlessly integrates with Triscan’s Odyssey World™ software ensuring real-time, web-based fuel management for Rapid Readymix to manage the issuing and account for every drop of fuel.
This turnkey installation ensures the service of a wide range of vehicles including concrete mixers, concrete pumps, plant vehicles and a fleet of vans and cars.
“The Triscan system has allowed us to closely monitor our fuel usage and emissions and has improved our fuel security. The web-based Odyssey software has helped us identify ways in which we can decrease our environmental impact and save on fuel costs. This has been essential for us with regards to readying ourselves for FORS accreditation and maintaining our good repute as an operator. Having the fuel tanks and pumps enclosed in a lockable bunded unit with every fuelling having to be approved with a vehicle-assigned key fob has relieved us of any worries about theft, spills or vehicles being fuelled incorrectly.”
