We understand that fuel distributors need safe, fast and reliable methods of loading their tankers.
That’s why Alpeco’s range of bottom loading skids and depot tanker loading systems have been selected by leading fuel distribution companies around the world.
Cost-Effective Customised Solutions
With over 32 standard build options to choose from, our cost-effective bottom loading skids can be configured with 1 to 4 loading arms, pumps and mechanical or electronic flow meters offering loading rates between 900 and 2200 LPM.
Highest Quality Materials & Components
Designed and manufactured in accordance with recognised industry standards, our fuel tanker loading skids are constructed using only the highest quality materials and components such as loading arms, EPS 3 phase centrifugal pumps, Liquip Overfill prevention rack monitor, vapour recovery system and Liquid Controls fuel flow meters with a choice of mechanical or electronic registers.
Assembled and Tested in the UK
With each bottom loading skid being fully assembled and tested in our Aylesbury workshop, onsite installation is reduced significantly, requiring simply securing the unit to a concrete base, pipe work connection between the skid and storage tanks and 3 phase electrical connections. We can have a loading skid installed and operational within 3 to 4 days, reducing both time and on-site engineering costs.
Tanker Loading Case Studies
The Watson Group chose Alpeco bottom loading skids for its growing number of fuel depots across the UK.
“We’ve just supplied a fourth skid to Watson Petroleum for installation at another new depot,” says Adrian Baskott, Alpeco sales director. Stuart Morgan, Watson’s operations manager now specifies Alpeco skids for installation in all the company’s fuel depots.
Having fitted Alpeco equipment on two new tankers last year, Standard Fuel Oils chose the same company to supply and install a new 3-arm bottom loading skid at its Merseyside depot in Knowsley
When Nolan Oils decided to upgrade the fuel delivery station at their depot in Bicester, Oxfordshire, they turned to fuel distribution equipment specialist Alpeco Limited.
In upgrading their depot Nolan faced severe space constraints which meant that Alpeco had to design and build a bespoke unit in order to be able to site the skid where Nolan Oils needed it to be located.
