Transformative Fuel Supply & Generator Solution for the Mining Industry

Transformative Fuel Supply & Generator Solution for the Mining Industry

Our client, a prominent player in the mining industry, required a robust and efficient fuel supply system to sustain Light and Heavy Vehicle refuelling along with some  generators operating on-site. PETRO Industrial was entrusted with the task of designing and implementing a comprehensive solution tailored to meet their specific needs.

Diesel Storage and Dispensing Tank Farm for Vehicles and Generators, by PETRO Industrial

We designed this innovative bulk fuel farm, featuring 5 PETRO LT Series 68,000L Bulk fuel tanks seamlessly interconnected with linking kits. Each tank was equipped with TRAP breather assemblies to efficiently regulate moisture and prevent dust ingress, safeguarding the integrity of the stored diesel. The Fuel Farm was strategically designed to facilitate Light and Heavy Vehicle Refueling.

Heavey vehicle at central control module and unloading fuel pump

Complementing the fuel storage setup, a 6m Dangerous Goods store was engineered to serve as the central control module for the Fuel Farm as well as house the unloading pump.

This DG Store not only ensures compliance with safety regulations but also houses two high masts equipped with Low and High flow, dual hose nozzles and one High flow nozzle, contributing to a comprehensive and secure fuel distribution system.

PETRO Cube for diesel supply to two generators

Additional to the Fuel Farm tanks, a fully customised PETRO LT Series 30,000L Bulk fuel tank was installed to feed a PC Cube 1,100L daytank that supplies 2 generators on site. All necessary transfer systems were installed in the full height, lockable pumpbay.

All refuelling points were equipped with fire extinguishers, safety eye wash and shower stations. PETRO Industrial completed the setup with Spill Containment Units and the refuelling points and near the 6m Dangerous Goods store. Environmentally complying to all standards.

Safe Storage:

All pumping equipment found its home in a dedicated 6m Dangerous Goods Store. This secure facility housed NMI approved meters, an iPETRO Pro fluids management system, tank gauging, and five duty standby transfer pumps, guaranteeing compliance with industry standards and safety regulations.

Fuel dispensing, monitoring and gauging by PETRO Industrial

Efficient Monitoring:

Our integrated solution included a sophisticated tank gauging system, providing real-time visibility into fuel levels. This ensures the client can proactively manage fuel supply, minimizing downtime and optimizing operational efficiency.

Enhanced Containment Measures:

To bolster safety during road tanker unloading and light vehicle refueling, our solution incorporated spill containment units. These units provide an added layer of protection, mitigating the risk of spills and ensuring compliance with stringent environmental regulations.

Accessibility and Safety Features:

The fuel tanks were strategically fitted with easy-access walkways, facilitating regular checks and maintenance. Moreover, emergency spill kits, eye wash stations, safety showers and fire extinguishers were positioned for quick response to unforeseen situations, prioritizing safety and environmental protection.
