Cameron Forecourt, the UK’s leading commercial Fuelling Specialist has supplied a new centralised fuelling system to significantly overhaul all aspects of one client’s fuelling operations.
The new system has amalgamated three separate fuelling sites, operated by waste specialist, Chambers Waste Group, which provides a total waste management and recycling service in the South of England.
Cameron Forecourt has upgraded the existing Optima PC units at the company’s three depots to the Eclipse fuel management system. This interfaces into the Cameron Forecourt web-based fuel management software, allowing complete, real time management and monitoring of fuel supplies.
Cameron Forecourt also supplied and installed three OLE tank gauge systems to Chambers Waste’s above ground tanks located at sites around the Aldershot area. The three fuelling sites are located at Runfold (Farnham), Slyfield (Guildford) and Jacobs Well (Guildford).
Established in 1969 Chambers Waste has evolved into an integrated recycling, waste management and aggregates business, servicing a wide range of commercial and domestic customers. The company is involved in all aspects of waste collection, management and recycling service for trade customers, including universities, construction companies and householders. They provide a complete portfolio of waste management services in Surrey and the surrounding border areas of Sussex, Hampshire, Berkshire and Middlesex to customers of all sizes.
Chambers Waste operate a sizeable fleet of 55 operational vehicles, most of which are on the road at any one time. The fleet comprises a variety of types, from skip vehicles, tippers and articulated HGV’s, through to roll-on/roll-off vehicles (RORO’s) and volumetric mixers. Chamber’s total expenditure on fuel is in excess of £1 million per annum.
Given the nature of Chambers Waste’s business, environmental management is high on the company’s agenda. The system installed and managed through Cameron Forecourt contributes towards Chamber’s goals of being environmentally responsible, through more effective management of its fuel.
The new system has enabled the centralisation of all Chamber’s fuel management activities replacing the previous three-site arrangement, bringing the added benefits of overall management and visibility of the company’s extensive fuelling arrangements, given the company’s sizeable fleet.
High accuracy electronic gauging provides instant information on fuel stock levels, remaining tank capacity and ullage, allowing managers to maintain safe working levels and to arrange replenishment as and when necessary. Fuel drawings monitored by the Eclipse system can then be reconciled against fuelling from the tanks. All Chambers Waste’s vehicles & drivers have key fobs to access the fuel as necessary.
Explains Cameron Forecourt Sales and Marketing Director Martyn Gent:
“We have implemented a system at Chambers Waste which brings together what were three separate sites, bringing with it the benefits of a total, professional overall fuelling management solution. Fuelling can take place at any time of day or night. The integrated package allows the customer to keep a constant check on fuel movements, stock levels, and consumption, providing complete and accurate wetstock reconciliation around the clock.”
