Reduce the emissions of your construction fuel by switching to HVO

With many businesses in the construction sector under pressure to reduce their environmental impact, HVO fuel offers a great solution to significantly reduce net CO2 emissions (by up to 90%) without the need for major operational changes. It’s completely miscible with regular diesel, making it easy for construction sites to switch to the fully renewable alternative.

Benefits of HVO fuel

  • A shelf life of up to 10 years – a perfect fuel to store and transfer long-term
  • Exceptional cold weather performance – with a high cetane number and low cloud point of up to -32oC
  • Zero FAME, sulphur and fossil content – cleaner burning with a reduced need for regular testing
  • Approved by a large number of OEMs – for both on and off-road use

We’re such an advocate of HVO that we use it in our very own delivery fleet! If you’d like to join us, call 0330 123 1144 today to get a quote from one of our fuel experts.

Other common fuels we supply to businesses in the construction sector include

Free fuel management for construction sites

Fuel management is crucial to construction projects running smoothly but can also be overwhelming when managing multiple activities across your site(s) such as health and safety, sourcing materials or shifting equipment. When you opt in to our free fuel management service, we’ll bear the burden of managing your fuel supply, monitoring your usage and automating deliveries based on your consumption.

Fuel storage tanks and expert installations for construction sites

If you’re starting work on a new construction project and are looking to store fuel onsite, we’re here to help. We supply 500 – 120,000 litre fuel storage tanks throughout the UK, with expert installation to ensure your tanks are secure and safe. No matter the size of your building site, we can meet your needs and budget to suggest a suitable tank based on your requirements.

Environmental fuel services to prevent construction fuel leaks

If your diesel is stored onsite during the winter, it may become susceptible to gelling as a result of the cold temperatures and an increased chance of water entering your tank. Over time, this gelling can start to damage your fuel tanks and clog pipework and fuel filters. With our environmental services, we can remove nasty sludge and breathe new life into your fuel and storage tanks. Some of the environmental services that we offer include:

If you’re looking to avoid business disruption as a result of your fuel supply, prevention is always better than a cure. Get in touch with a member of our planned preventative maintenance team on 0330 123 1144 today.

Waste oil collections, fuel uplifts and construction fuel tank removals

When removing or transferring fuels from a construction site, it’s important that all regulations are met to avoid spillage, environmental damage and to ensure the safety of your staff. Our waste oil collections are perfect for construction businesses that are finishing work on a site and need to remove their fuel or transfer it to a new location.

Frequently asked questions about storing construction fuel onsite

During our time working with construction companies of all shapes and sizes, we’ve learned a thing or two about the needs of our customers in the sector. Take a look at the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions from other businesses in your sector below.

How should diesel be stored onsite?

To ensure onsite safety for your workforce and the local environment, all fixed oil tanks must meet the British Standard 5410 and be stored at least 10 meters away from water, away from areas at risk of flooding and 50 meters clear of a spring to avoid pipework breaking and causing a fuel spillage.

If you’d like to find out more, take a look at our free Oil and Fuel Storage Regulations Guide or call 0330 123 1144 today to speak to an expert.

Can you manage fuel supply across multiple construction sites?

Yes! Thanks to our large tanker fleet and nationwide network of supply depots we can manage your fuel supply across multiple construction sites. Whether you run multiple sites in a region or across the nation, we’ve got the capacity to meet all your fuel needs.

For businesses looking for more visibility of stored fuel across multiple building sites, our tank telemetry monitoring systems allow you to see your fuel levels remotely and top up your tanks before they run empty.

Call 0330 123 1144 today to request a tank telemetry installation today and a member of our team will be able to assist you.

What excavator fuels do you supply?

We supply high-quality diesel, fully renewable HVO fuel and a vast range of industrial lubricants, oils and greases, ensuring you maximise the performance of your vehicles and equipment.

What diesel is used on construction sites?

White diesel or HVO fuel (renewable diesel) must be used on construction sites since the removal of rebated red diesel eligibility for construction sites in April 2022. It is illegal to still be using red diesel for construction purposes – if you’re still using red diesel and need to switch, get in touch immediately by calling 0330 123 1144 and we’ll safely remove your fuel from your storage tank and supply you with a fresh batch of the correct fuel.

How do you protect construction fuel from theft at night?

A few ways that you can secure your construction site fuel at night include locating your fuel tank away from a road or path, installing additional security features such as motion triggered lighting, or by investing in tank telemetry. Our experts have compiled advice to prevent fuel theft onsite but if you’d like to learn more, you can speak to a member of our team today by calling 0330 123 1144.

Can you transfer fuel to another construction site?

Yes! If you’re finished on a building project and moving on to the next job, there’s no need to buy new fuel and storage tanks. We can safely transfer your fuel and fuel tank to another site, adhering to all regulations and safety standards.
