Bulk fuel on site and mobile refuelling at Milbrae Quarries, NSW

Based in Leeton in the Riverina region of NSW, Milbrae Quarries have been providing services in quarrying, mining and concrete manufacturing for over 35 years. With much of their work in remote locations, Milbrae Quarries approached Durotank for a fuel storage solution that would allow production to continue without disruption.

Like Durotank, delivering premium quality products and services are at the heart of the Milbrae business and they equate their continuing success to providing superior rock, meeting demand and the mobility of their operations. Often working miles from any town or services and with no power available on site, Milbrae needed a standalone solution that would enable crushes and heavy machinery to be refilled without putting them out of action or taking them to the diesel tanks. And the equipment would need to have the strength and durability to withstand the harsh conditions associated with mining and quarrying.

Solution

With space in abundance, Durotank suggested a package that included a Self Bunded Fuel Trailer and Self Bunded Diesel Standalone Tank to meet all the unique requirements of Milbrae. The lack of power at the site was countered by pairing a 12v solar System with 10,000L Self Bunded Smart Tank whilst mobile refuelling needs were met with Durotank’s highly durable premium quality 2000L Self Bunded Durotanker trailer. Both products were fitted with Durotank Mine Spec inclusion packages including reflective mine tape, emergency stop, wheel nut indicators and wheel chocks ensuring fuel could be taken to units without taking them out of the field.

Results

Ticking all the boxes, Milbrae initially purchased two of the customised packages suggested by Durotank. They were so happy with their effectiveness, they purchased further trailers and tanks and added Hatz diesel driven pumps instead of the 12v system. Harry Smith General Manager of Milbrae Quarries added,

“All our fuel trailers and on site tanks are supplied by Durotank which are built with strength and quality and always delivered on time, helpful and friendly staff, won’t get better.”

More Projects

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.

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.
