1,200L Durotanker trailers for Babcock Engineering
Babcock Engineering is a global defence and aerospace company dedicated to improving customer capability, reliability and availability of critical assets and services. Babcock’s clients rely on their expertise across a range of fields to source and deliver the best industry products for their requirements. In 2019 one of their clients based in Amberley Queensland approached them looking for guidance to purchase reliable, refuelling heavy ground equipment. The client wanted to change their refuelling structure to avoid refuelling through fuel cells or across difficult terrain, which was increasing project lead times and decreasing productivity.
The client required trailers that were able to refuel heavy ground equipment across Australia. They needed to be able to withstand difficult Australian terrain, and long workdays whilst maintaining outstanding performance. Based on the terrain and travel requirements, the trailer’s maximum weight capacity had to be under 2000kg and also had to have excellent safety features to reduce fuel theft.
After analysing Babcock’s requirements, the team at Durotank recommended the 1200L Durotanker diesel trailer. The trailer offers a great fuel capacity whilst staying under the client’s maximum weight requirements and manoeuvres well over challenging Australian terrain. For fuel safety the Durotanker trailer has a lockable cabinet and to further prioritise this, the team customised the trailer with lockable Camlock caps rather than standard fill caps.
Initially, Babcock purchased 10 x 1200L Durotanker diesel trailers. The client was thrilled with their Durotank experience from initial conception through to after-sale service, noting that the team went above and beyond to meet their requirements. Being 100% Australian made and manufactured, Durotank has continued to work closely with Babcock, making onsite client visits to optimise existing trailers and tweaking designs to meet customer requirements.
Based on Babcock’s experience with the 1200L trailers, they re-engaged Durotank this year to provide another 5 x 1200L trailers for their customers. We look forward to collaborating with Babcock on further projects to find standout fuel solutions for their clients’ needs.

I purchased a Poly Tank Fuel Trailer from DUROTANK in April 2018. DUROTANK builds one of the best fuel trailers I have ever used. The build quality, engineering and attention to detail is unreal. The fuel trailer is rock solid, it tracks extremely well full of fuel at 100km/hr and its road worthy. All of the fittings are hoses are high quality hydraulic hose and crimped fittings so there are no leaks. The Durotank team is very easy to deal with and more than happy to help with any enquiries. The staff are friendly and it is a pleasure to do business with them. I’d buy another one in a heartbeat, that’s for sure

The Duro Cubes are going extremely well! My guys are very happy with them. Having them already saved us on oil transport on at least 2 occasions so far and has also allowed us to restructure our oil work days and use out of hours oil deliveries to make more efficient use of the time on site.

Nick Dunlop – Kelton Rentals
As a business owner I would highly recommend DUROTANK to any person who is serious about saving money, purchasing and storing their own fuel in bulk, particularly in today’s challenging economic times. DUROTANK supplied us an excellent quality Australian made fuel tank built to the specs that suited out business. Our staff love how easy it is to use and how much time it saves refuelling each week. We purchased the Smartfill System with it and its definitely a worthwhile investment both for use and fuel management. The aftersales service from DUROTANK has been outstanding.
Tony Grace – Lachlan Valley

We found DUROTANK exceptionally professional to deal with. They worked closely with us to determine our exact need and then delivered the product within their promised time frame.
