Latest CHF & CTSL tank design & tank fabrication projects for clients UK-wide!

With new manufacturing facilities and a growing team, CTSL's tank design and fabrication division CHF enjoys excellent capacity for bespoke fuel tank design and fabrication in Leyland, right at the heart of British manufacturing. Our order book is growing continually, with unique tank designs created to suit our clients' individual fuel storage and supply needs, storage spaces available and operational requirements. 

As fuel becomes an ever-more valuable commodity in the current economic market, clients are seeking larger on-site fuel and oil storage capacities to enable them to purchase in greater quantities, as well as more secure tanks and tank designs featuring more efficient pumps, debowser units and fuel polishing systems that maximise value from fuel available.

Some examples of our latest projects are a great demonstration of our versatility in design and fabrication, with reliability and quality manufacture consistent throughout our complete portfolio.

Adjustable tank for national building supplies retailer

CTSL's national retailer client is a leading name in building supplies and tool hire to trade and self-build customers. Operating from branches throughout the country, our client's wide range of services includes earth-moving plant hire and other equipment to see customers' projects through from start to finish.

CHF, our tank design and fabrication division, has created this versatile, compact bunded tank with a 1350L capacity which will be distributed to one of our client's nationwide sites. Each tank features adjustable legs, enabling the tank to be adapted for uses across the client's property portfolio and adjusted according to the site conditions and access requirements.

Each model also incorporates an efficient, high-volume electric dispensing pump, enabling plant and our client's other equipment to be fuelled quickly and safely. With a robust, quality-assured structure and ease of access to pumps, our client's tanks will serve distribution centres nationwide for years to come.

Bespoke tank design for forklift refuelling

As with many other industries, the manufacturing sector is finding ways of adapting to increased fuel needs and energy costs to ensure seamless continuity in operations. Our client commissioned this neat, 1350L-capacity bunded fuel storage tank, offering much-needed fuel storage on site at its facility in the North West.

Our tank design and fabrication, incorporating an efficient, high-delivery electric pump, will be used to fuel forklift trucks on-site at our client's premises, maintaining smooth operations by allowing for minimal downtime whilst protecting fuel supplies with a secure, bespoke fuel tank which will serve the facility for years. This style of tank is highly adaptable, making it ideal for use in agriculture and many other sectors.

As ever, tank design includes integrated crane lifting eyes and an easy-access pump area for the client team.

Back up generation fuel storage tank for telecommunications provider

Continuing our work supporting a national telecommunications provider, this bespoke 2200L bunded fuel tank is designed and manufactured to support on-site back up generation, ensuring continuity of service in the event of power failure.

Part of a national rollout of upgraded back up generation infrastructure, our client places critical importance on reliability, compliance and consistency in design and operation of tanks to allow for straightforward operation of the tank by site staff. Although tank capacities vary, each cabinet and associated equipment is identical in dimensions and features, including fuel recirculation units to recover fuel from day tanks.

This tank is a smaller design, with other models designed and manufactured by CHF reaching 12,000+ L capacities. Each bunded fuel tank is designed on a bespoke basis to serve equipment located at individual sites. 

10,000L capacity fuel station under construction

Currently under construction in our CHF tank fabrication workshop is this large, 10,000L storage capacity bunded fuel station for an agricultural client.

These unique fuel stations have been developed in-house by our bunded tank design team, incorporating a raft of features suitable for businesses across many sectors. From farming and agriculture to small businesses, plant hire and construction and vehicle rental organisations, CHF's fuel stations are designed on a bespoke basis according to client need, but include quality dispensing pumps and reels as standard.

This tank will be finished entirely in-house by our tank fabrication team, quality assured by our fuel management experts and sprayed in our own spray booth before being shipped to site for use supporting farm vehicles with easily-accessible fuel to keep operations on track.
