Mobile refuelling solutions are required wherever heavy plant and equipment is operating. This can be in urban locations as well as more remote mine and construction sites.

The Project

This solution needed to maintain the reliability our trailers are renowned for so the battery, solar panel charge controller and delivery pump are of the highest quality.

The Supercharge 12v deep cell battery holds 170 minutes of charge. The top mounted solar panel is an 80w Protecta polycrystalline and has a strong protective unit encasing it but cleaning is still possible to maintain charging efficiency. The charge controller is also Protecta and has LED charge indicator lights. Both this and the battery are front mounted and fully enclosed and protected.

The USA Great Plains pump is self-priming and the assembly is heavy duty cast iron and is capable of pumping refuelling supplies up to 60l per minute and has a lift capacity of 3m. The retractable 10m hose and auto shut off nozzle allows for straightforward refuelling of a wide variety of vehicles.

The front assembly is a bunded front containment area which has a drain plug to safely remove and dispose of any spilt fuel. In the event of a fuel spillage when refuelling, the spill kit is easily accessible from the top mounted Tuff Box and contains the necessary equipment to deal with and contain any spillage reducing any environmental or health and safety hazards. Each trailer has a fire extinguisher fitted in the unlikely incidence of a fi re.

The solar trailers have been extensively trialled on remote and challenging rural sites including; Wiluna, Port Hedland, Karratha and Gascoyne Junction in WA and has met with nothing but praise from clients. Highlights include being user friendly, virtually maintenance free, lightweight, no diesel costs, self-priming, low noise and emission free.

Fuelfix & Tanks2Go offer the self bunded 1,200lt mobile refuelling trailer for hire or sale throughout Australia from any of our strategically placed locations. Our skilled response teams are also based across this network and can offer a huge range of services and business support.
