Kent Fire and Rescue Service is the statutory fire and rescue service for the administrative county of Kent and the unitary authority area of Medway, covering a geographical area south of London, to the coast and including major shipping routes via the Thames and Medway rivers.
Together, The Triscan Group, successfully provide fuel management and support to 19 Kent Fire sites.
When Kent Fire opened a new site in Ramsgate they reached out to Triscan for their new fuelling facility. As this was a new site, it was essential to work with Kent Fire to reduce time on-site and organise appropriate delivery dates.
To help with the process and to meet various health and safety protocols, all equipment was pre-installed off-site prior to the 10,000-litre cylindrical diesel tank being delivered. Our engineer worked to install the 56 LPM dispensing pump and Sigma 750 fuel management system inside of the lockable cabinet. This cabinet ensures the equipment is tidy and in one place and is further protected by roller shutter doors to for extra security against damage and fuel theft. On top of this, a specialist lockable manway cover was installed to the top of the tank, as the customer had directly had a problem with fuel theft prior to this installation.
The project management team then worked together to organise the tank delivery followed by a fuel delivery. Lining up fuel deliveries like this enables our team to ‘wet test’ the tank. This ensures there are no leaks or damage and everything is working correctly. On this occasion, electrics hadn’t yet been turned on on-site, so our engineer revisited a few days later to complete the commissioning of fuel management and check the pulse rates.
The customer was then provided with a calibration certificate and warranty.
