Kingspan launches Slimline Edge AdBlue tank

Kingspan’s storage and dispensing arm has unveiled the Slimline Edge, a new tank that it claims will revolutionise AdBlue retailing.

What's in the pipeline?

With so much technology being introduced on forecourts and in stores it could be easy for attention to waver from the tanks and pipework buried underground, but constantly ensuring they are in good condition is one of the most crucial tasks facing dealers. The fine of £8m imposed on Tesco last summer for a fuel leak at its Haslingden site, is a chilling reminder of the potential penalties if something goes wrong.

Skin deep

With most tanks and pipework buried underground it is tempting to just ignore them, but more and more dealers are taking a concerned interest in the health of their systems because the financial penalties if they fail can be fatal for a business. If any fuel leaks into the environment, firms can face unlimited fines and, at the very least, a huge bill and long closure while the mess is cleaned up. And with forecourt sites also becoming much sought-after real estate, any contamination will knock a huge amount off the value of the asset.

Tank to bank

Business is brisk in the tank sector with many dealers either re-lining existing tanks or investing in new ones, according to Phil Prow, sales and marketing director of Vianet Fuel Solutions
