Commercial fuelling specialist Cameron Forecourt has responded to an emergency call from one of its customers by carrying out a complete 40,000 litre fuel tank replacement in under one working week.

MJD Vehicle at refuelling point

Cameron Forecourt’s service engineers wasted no time when faced by the dilemma presented by customer The MJD Group of Companies Ltd after the fault rendered a tank unusable at the company’s base in Swanscombe, Kent. 

MJD, which handles distribution for companies including a well known drinks company, alerted their service contractor Cameron Forecourt, to the problem with the 40,000 litre above-ground tank on a Friday afternoon.

A replacement tank was immediately sourced from Simon Engineering for delivery the following Thursday, at which point a team of Cameron service engineers worked flat out to recommission the fuelling installation, including pumps, fuel management and the Ad Blue tank. They also supervised the transfer of the remaining fuel tanks from the old tank to the new replacement.

The installation was up and running again in less than a week from the fault being first reported. Explains Cameron Forecourt Major Account Manager Clive Brewerton: “MJD have been on service contract with us since we renewed their dispensing and fuel management system about a year ago. When they called us out we were able to respond immediately and located a replacement tank within a few hours.”
