National fuel distributor, Crown Oil, has removed 6.4 million litres of surplus gas oil at Derwent Power Station in Derby. The four month operation has released a substantial sum for the generator and required 200 tanker movements. The closely controlled operation was completed without a single spillage.

Mark Andrews, Crown Oil’s general manager explained, “There are many power stations and industrial operation facing similar problems with bulk back-up fuel that is no longer needed. This fuel is a potential environmental threat and will only degrade over time. Fortunately, we can remove this material and so release working capital for our client.”

A major fuel oil distributor that has its own environmental services operation, Crown Oil is one of only a handful of companies in the UK with the technical, commercial and distribution resources for this work. Before removal, samples of fuel are carefully analysed to assess condition. Should it be necessary recovered fuel is re-blended and appropriately graded before it is sold on to the market.

Crown Oil offered a better return to the client and demonstrated a capability to do the work without environmental impact. The company also has a track record, having successfully completed a similar project last year to recover 25 million litres of fuel at Medway Power Station in Kent.

Preparations are now in hand for the final environmental work. This will involve the removal and safe disposal of oil residues, draining of pipework, cleaning of tanks and degassing so that they are safe and ready to be re-used at any time in the future should the need arise.

Crown Oil can offer a national fuel recovery service to any power station or industrial site. As a major oil distributor, with substantial technical resources and market knowledge, the company is uniquely placed to provide an integrated and competitive service.
