  • Fuel System Testing and Maintenance

    With many fuel systems only used in emergency situations, regular and complete testing is vital to ensure integrity. MEMS can provide a comprehensive maintenance package to cover all aspects of fuel storage, pump transfer and safety systems associated with bulk diesel fuel storage.

    Tank Cleaning & Fuel Polishing

    With all bulk storage systems, fuel will degrade over time due to contamination from various sources. This problem is further exacerbated by the increased levels of bio-diesel found in modern fuels which promote bacterial growth, furring pipes, blocking filter elements and potentially causing serious damage to engine fuel systems. MEMS can offer a cost effective tank cleaning and fuel polishing solution to keep your fuel up to specification, thus eliminating expensive repairs resulting from poor quality fuel.

    Fuel Deliveries

    MEMS operate an extensive tanker and fuel bowser fleet, enabling us to provide diesel to site either as a regular delivery, or as a emergency response within 4 hours of instruction.
