Preventing Spills and Leaks

Preventing Spills and Leaks

We know it’s important to avoid fuel spills and leaks to the environment and that’s why we have brought in a number of measures to keep these to a minimum. These include training our staff on Spill Prevention Control measures, storing fuel correctly and installing detection systems so if there is a problem we are alerted to it straight away.

 

Spills

  • We have developed Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plans to prevent spills from storage and during fuel loading
  • Our staff are trained on SPCC plans
  • We have a spill hotline which is manned 24/7
  • Spill kits are placed by fuelling islands

Leaks

  • Our storage tanks are made from material that won’t corrode, they have overfill protection and secondary containment to prevent leaks
  • We also have a number of detection systems which spot signs of leaks quickly so we can deal with them as soon as they appear
  • All of our systems are checked regularly to make sure they are in top working order
