For example, a large fuel distribution company operating multiple sites across Ireland from one central office, faced the challenge of removing rainwater from bund areas surrounding tank farms. Removal proved costly as disposal rates were based on hazardous waste.
Darcy Spillcare Manufacture supplied Bund Water Control Units to six of the most affected sites. Units are able to constantly monitor rainwater collected within the bund, automatically pumping it out to the on-site interceptor as levels rise. The system also has in-built oil detection technology that shuts down the pumping operation and sends an alarm to an authorised person should there be a tank failure or a spill.
The company now has peace of mind that its remote depots are safe and meet environmental regulations.
