Power generation with on-site diesel supply and storage

DIESEL Power Generation, or Gas?

What does the future look like?

It’s no secret that gas prices are escalating fast as we speak, because of global tensions. These ongoing increases will simply be transferred to the customer! Yes, the price of diesel is also rising, but if you store diesel in bulk, you can buy from any supplier and receive the rebates. Purchase your PETRO diesel storage tank today, buy diesel in bulk, and SAVE MONEY!

A self-bunded diesel storage tank refers to a tank that has a double-wall construction with an outer tank (bund) surrounding the inner tank. This design provides an extra layer of protection against leaks and spills by containing any potential fuel leaks within the bund.


  • Buy from any supplier and negotiate on the price of diesel
  • You claim the rebates
  • You will always have diesel on-site
  • You can also re-fuel your vehicles from the same storage tank
