HVO CASE STUDY
We are the experts in the transition from fossil fuels to cleaner burning alternatives
Site Name: Undisclosed
Description of works: Changeover from Gas Oil to Enzyme Energy HVO
Tank Size: 20,000 litres
Location: Southampton, UK
The process before the transition stages:
For this particular case, we looked at various different companies in which could be looking to make the change to HVO or GTL. We called this particular company and to our delight, they were looking at making the change to HVO.
The customer had previously looked into HVO
and GTL and decided that HVO would benefit their business In many ways. We had a brief discussion with the customer over the phone about our Enzyme Energy HVO and they were interested in working with us.
We arranged a face to face meeting the following week to have a further, in depth discussion about the way in which SDM Fuel Solutions would create this changeover.
The stages of the transition to Enzyme Energy HVO:
After our discussion with the customer, they had agreed that they wanted to carry out the changeover. We started with a technical survey in which would show the compatibility of Enzyme Energy HVO with the current generators and fuel systems.
After the technical survey was complete, we were able to produce a scope and programme to help with the transition to Enzyme Energy HVO throughout the site.
After discussing with the client the results of the technical survey and the process moving forward including a generator change, a fuel pump change and a slight change to the fuel infrastructure. The customer was happy to continue.
The existing fuel was uplifted from the tank. We then put the fuel on the market for the best possible price, which was then offered to the customer as a rebate.
After the uplift was complete, we continued to a SDM Fuel Solutions manned entry tank clean. This is where we removed any trace of contamination and old fuel.
This meant that the new fuel could be replaced therefore leading to no mixing of fuels or the new fuel becoming contaminated. Some companies are happy for the fuel to be mixed however, from a technical perspective, SDM Fuel Solutions believe it is best to fully clean and remove any trace of old fuel to then replace it with a newer, cleaner fuel.
The fuel was then replaced with Enzyme Energy HVO.
After the transition to Enzyme Energy HVO, we like to offer the installation of Jetstream. Jetstream is our innovative fuel tank cleaning
system, this guarantees no further fuel contamination after the transition to Enzyme Energy HVO. In this situation, the client was eager to
install Jetstream to increase their business resilience.
How did the client benefit from the changeover to Enzyme Energy HVO?
After leaving the customers site, we implemented a PPM strategy, in which we would attend site biannually to sample the fuel and provide a
fuel analysis report to confirm that there was no contamination present in any fuel on their site. We were informed by the client that
they were very happy with the changeover and stated that
“SDM Fuel Solutions were extremely professional and carried out the works safely, efficiently and too a high standard.”
