Fibrelite launches the industry’s first fiber reinforced plastic above ground fill sump range.

Through collaboration with a global major oil company, the first retro-fit model was designed to replace existing concrete sumps and connect to existing underground pipework. The first installation has been completed by Kwong Ngee Engineering PTE Ltd in Singapore.

The S22SH-2/AGF model is designed to contain up to seven remote fill lines and one vapour recovery stage VR1b. The highly innovative design provides secondary containment and the upper spill tray can contain up to 83 litres of discharged fuel. On this site, the lower sump and the spill tray were supplied as solid components, so the holes could be drilled on site to fit the configuration of the existing underground pipework.

The system includes an earth cable kit to ground the system and the watertight hinged double doors provide secure easy access to the fill points for the tanker driver. Fibrelite will be expanding this new range of products in the coming months.

Coupled with Fibrelite’s fuel resistant Viton entry boots this presents a great environmental solution and a major health and safety step forward.
