Together with our project partner, Forecourt Installation Services, we are finalists in The Association of Petroleum & Explosives Association (APEA) Awards “Best New Non-Retail Fuel Installation” category. The shortlisted project was for the manufacture and installation of two fuel tanks for Lincolnshire based Pilgrim Foodservices.

The APEA was founded in 1958 and is a UK based organisation with members from the petroleum industry, including Regulators from National and Local Government Authorities, oil companies, equipment manufacturers together with suppliers, service and installation companies. The APEA brings the industry together and works for a safer environment.

Our Award application featured a project we carried out for the food wholesaler, Pilgrim Foodservices, who required an 80,000 litre bespoke steel diesel storage tank and a 10,000 litre plastic AdBlue tank to cover the daily fuelling requirements of their fleet of 60 delivery vehicles.

Tuffa designed and manufactured the tanks which were delivered to site in Lincolnshire. Our project partner, Andrew West at Forecourt Installation Services then completed the installation to the twin fuelling lanes required by the Transport team at Pilgrim Foodservices. You can read the full story of the project here.
