Delta, BC, Canada – When there’s no gas station for a thousand miles, now you can bring your own. SEI Industries Ltd. recently launched its new GO-Station fuel modules, built inside ISO containers, and capable of providing everything needed to receive and transfer fuel from any bulk fuel storage system.
The concept is simple – provide a controlled, protected environment to house pumping, filtration, metering and dispensing equipment.
Make it tough, compact and portable so it can be shipped by land, sea or air. Design it to withstand remote locations and engineer it to be compatible with diesel fuel, jet fuel or lube oils (future models will also allow gas).
“The first three GO-Station units are currently in various stages of construction and are expected to be commissioned by the end of the year at an undisclosed remote mine site,” says Paul Reichard, remote site division manager at SEI Industries. “The GO-Station is ideal for remote operations and an innovative next step when it comes to permanent, safe refueling systems.”
Unique GO-Station Features
- All controls are explosion-proof and mounted within an onboard electrical room for easy access.
- Containers are insulated with doors and ports for connection to fuel lines and power. Stainless steel piping and valving is used to interconnect the modules.
- Fire suppression systems and spill protection is built-in.
- Multiple dispensing units are accessible by roll up doors with retractable hose reels to provide bulk transfer or refueling of vehicles, tanker trucks or lube trucks.
- All components are built on modular skids that can be easily moved for service or replaced, if the need arises.
- Explosion-proof lighting is standard and area explosion-proof heating is available as an option as are automated tank monitoring and fluid controls.
For the past 30 years, SEI has supported remote commercial operations, emergency management agencies and military forces with a variety of equipment options – many of which are “world-first” in design.
