SEI Industries Ltd. is pleased to announce the launch of its new proprietary Fire Resistant Arctic-Shield™ fabric, designed specifically for above-ground secondary containment products.
SEI’s new industrial fabric represents the first time a fabric has been engineered specifically for secondary containment of hydro-carbons in arctic environments. It is also the first above-ground secondary containment fabric that is fire resistant to NFPA 701 standards. Since other types of fabric use under-ground secondary containment liners, they are tested to a less stringent fire resistant standard because they are typically buried under six inches of gravel.
Fire Resistant Arctic-Shield™ fabric is unique because it is the first fabric that combines all the critical features needed for cold climate secondary containment of fuels and has the tear, puncture and abrasion resistance to be used in above-ground secondary containment applications. It is:
Environment Canada has officially released its Technical Guidance Document for collapsible storage tanks which will be published and posted in March, 2010, at the following web address www.ec.gc.ca/st-rs. This new document provides significant information for operators.
The document covers the minimum requirements for the design and construction of collapsible fabric storage tanks used for above-ground storage of petroleum products and allied petroleum products. Installations that have storage tank systems built around collapsible fabric storage tanks will be required to meet all applicable sections of these regulations.

Delta, BC – SEI Industries Ltd. is proud to introduce a trio of lightweight collapsible fuel tanks designed specifically for extreme climates – The Desert King, Jungle King, and Arctic King. Each is engineered for rapid deployment in remote sites to deliver rugged, reliable liquid logistics. SEI Industries is a Canadian manufacturer specializing in remote site liquid logistics, including fuel storage, transfer, filtering, metering, and transportation.
DELTA, CANADA – SEI Industries Ltd. announces the release of the BB2226, a 1000 liter/264 USG Bambi Bucket designed specifically to provide an optimum balance between capacity and weight for the Eurocopter AS 350B3 Series and similar-sized small and medium helicopters.
The compact BB2226 complements the existing Bambi Bucket line, closing the gap between the 240-gallon BB2024 and the 324-gallon BB2732 Bambi Bucket. It was developed in response to customer demand and will be a permanent addition to the existing family of Bambi Bucket models.
VANCOUVER – The Province is helping to build Greece’s ability to respond to wildfires by providing training to the Hellenic Fire Brigade, announced Premier Gordon Campbell today. “British Columbia is fortunate to have a vibrant Greek community, creating strong personal and cultural links with Greece,” said Premier Campbell. “By sharing British Columbia’s expertise in fighting wildfires, as supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, we can strengthen our existing ties with the people of Greece, and help prevent future loss due to wildfire.”
SEI Industries is proud to announce the fulfillment of another UH-60 Bambi Bucket delivery to the California Army National Guard. The National Guard requisitioned two new 640 gallon Bambi Buckets, each with Torrentula multi-flow valve, and a pair of bottom filling Powerfill pumps. The new technical capabilities were requested after the July fire siege of Northern California. The technology will increase the California National Guard arsenal of Bambi Buckets that are used to fight wildfires each year.
To maximize its firefighting capabilities in a very dry year, the Nevada Air National Guard has upgraded its 2,000-gal. SEI Torrentula Bambi Buckets with a power suction system on their four CH-47 Chinook helicopters.”We already use the SEI bambi bucket,” says SFC Don Gable, a flight engineer with Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 189th Brigade. But years of drought are leaving traditional water sources far below normal capacity, making them less useful for traditional dip-fill tactics.
Gable learned that Columbia Helicopters of Aurora, Ore., has been successfully deploying its SEI bucket and power fill system, so he turned to them 18 months ago to upgrade the Guard’s equipment. Nevada’s naturally dry climate was taxed even more by three years of drought.
