The order to fit out the new facility extended to five 30,000 litre TEBU tanks configured to three single compartment units and two flexible duel compartments in a 50/50 arrangement. The project is an internal specialist oil storage and distribution facility, with Blakes also manufacturing, supplying and installing all the necessary platform frames, gantry and access kit. These structural and secondary engineering elements for the depot were manufactured to EN1090-1 specification as with all of Blake’s fabricated steelwork as a CE Accredited supplier.
Andrew Salton, Lubricants manager at CERTAS commented:
“Certas Energy are the largest distributor of lubricants in the U.K. and are partners for brands like Castrol, Total, Valvoline and Shell along with Adblue, rust preventatives and coolants and auxiliary products. We operate in various sectors like construction, farming, bus and coach, marine and haulage.
We came to Blakes as previous experience told us we could count on the expertise and professionalism to manufacture the tanks we required to do the actual job in question. The finished result is testament to the previous works carried out by Blakes Group to an exceptional high standard and showing the care, knowledge of legislation, and diligence that we would like to believe that we are known for in our own business”.
