Press release from:

Leading storage tank manufacturer Harlequin, is set to unveil the company’s new range of BioDiesel storage and dispensing tanks at Europe’s biggest BioDiesel exhibition, BioDiesel Expo set for the Newark Showgrounds in Nottinghamshire on 17 and 18 October 2007.

Prototype BioFuel Stations were previewed at the recent Irish National Ploughing Championships, in the Republic of Ireland, where they received an enthusiastic response. The all-new BioFuel Station range is manufactured from a unique BioDiesel resistant grade of polyethylene and incorporates the very latest fuel delivery technology from Europe’s leading fuel dispensing manufacturer, Piusi. Available in a choice of capacities from 1400 litres to 10,000 litres, BioFuel Stations are suitable for use with BioDiesel grades of up to B100, in accordance with British Standard BS EN14214.

Harlequin’s Sales & Marketing Manager, John Switzer says, “The new BioFuel Station range has been developed specifically for the safe, secure and environmentally responsible storage of BioDiesel Grades of up to B100. BioDiesel is a specialist fuel which requires specialist containment. Grades greater than B10 are inherently unsuitable for storage in tanks manufactured from standard oil tank grades of polyethylene. In developing the BioFuel Station range, we have worked closely with leading international polymer suppliers. Every Harlequin BioFuel Station is manufactured from a unique, fully recyclable, BioDiesel resistant grade of Medium Density Polyethylene. For complete peace of mind and reassurance, all equipment fitted to the BioFuel Station range has been rigorously tested to ensure resistance to approved grades of BioDiesel."

Harlequin’s BioFuel Station range will be available in two guises - Standard and Arctic.

Standard Grade BioFuel Stations are designed for use with BioDiesel Grades of up to B100 and feature added-value extras as standard, including 240v Piusi fuel delivery pump; automatic shut off nozzle; Apollo electronic oil tank level monitor; fuel resistant delivery hose; bulkhead light; lockable cabinet access; integral bunding; emergency isolation switch; weatherproof venting; factory fitted fill, vent and access points; and fuel filtration system. Standard Grade models will be adequate for most BioDiesel storage installations in the British Isles.

Arctic Grade models build upon the high specification of Standard Grade models, but additionally and usefully incorporate a thermostatically controlled heating system. The heating system ensures that at low temperatures, the viscosity of stored fuel remains unchanged. Arctic Grade models are recommended for the storage of BioDiesel in colder climates, and will not normally be required at most installations within the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland when stored fuel has been produced in accordance with the Summer and Winter fuel requirements detailed within British Standard BS EN14214.

A mechanical flow meter can be supplied on all 1,400 litre and 2,500 litre models, and on larger capacity 5,000 litre and 10,000 litre models - a high accuracy, digital flow meter is supplied as standard.

Larger capacity models can also be specified complete with Piusi fuel management system, suitable for use with up to 80 users - allowing storage tank owners to take control of their fuel and minimising the risk of fuel theft and fraud. A bund warning alarm is fitted as standard on all 5,000 litre and 10,000 litre models and is an extra cost option on smaller capacity models.

Production of BioFuel Stations is set to commence shortly at Harlequin’s Advanced Manufacturing Facility in the UK. The complete range of BioFuel Stations will be available to purchase at the BioDiesel Expo in Newark in partnership with storage tank supplier, Firmly established as the UK’s leading online storage tank reseller, can supply the complete range of Harlequin tanks for Agricultural Fuel Oil, BioDiesel, Diesel, Heating Oil and Waste Oil Storage Tanks.
