About York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals
York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a comprehensive range of acute hospital and specialist healthcare services for approximately 800,000 people living in and around York, North Yorkshire, North East Yorkshire and Ryedale – an area covering 3,400 square miles. The Trust covers one of the biggest geographical areas in the country and is also a teaching hospital
The trust wanted a comprehensive service provider to test the current system, but to then also be able to compliantly remove the current tanks and deliver, install and commission a new system. The trust had found it difficult to find a provider who could deliver a complete turnkey solution.
Storing large quantities of liquid fuels has various challenges, but it is especially the case in a critical care environment. The trust was challenged with the prospect of a critical back power system being supported by a fuel system that was soon to be outside of it’s warranty period. Testing of both the fuel storage tanks and the associated supporting pipework meant the system needed to be replaced.
The trust decided to both replace and upgrade their incumbent storage tank with a new system which was both compliant with OFTEC regulations, and could provide them with real-time visibility and additional resilience. The soon to be out of warranty fuel storage tank was replaced by two new and bunded fuel storage tanks. The choice to have two new 30,000 litre fuel tanks was based on a risk profile which included the ongoing maintenance associated with Class A Gasoil.

The trust had found it difficult to find a provider who could deliver a complete turnkey solution.Read more
