Australia's First Self-Loading and Relocatable Bulk Fuel Storage Tanks from FES TANKS are Now Being Used in the Outback

The Hydraulic Un-Loading Kit (HULK) is revolutionising fuel logistics in remote locations

QUEENSLAND, Australia, Aug. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The founders of FES TANKS, Australia's market leader in self-bunded tanks, are pleased to announce that the continent's first—if not the world's first—self-loading, relocatable bulk fuel storage solution is now up and running in Outback Australia.

As a company spokesperson noted, the Hydraulic Un-Loading Kit (HULK) is an optional self-loading system that is grafted onto a bulk self-bunded tank. HULK, which was commissioned by Diamantina Shire Council—mainly due to its isolated location—features a complete self-sufficient relocatable bulk fuel storage solution.

Because Diamantina Shire Council is located on the border of Queensland, Northern Territory and South Australia, they are quite aware of the difficulties of properly managing the dispensing, storage and relocation of fuel in remote areas.

Thanks to the newly-launched HULK self-loading system, there will be an improvement in both the logistical costs of hard-to-access work areas as well as fuel management.

"The FES team, who are known for creating tailor-made fuel solutions for business, consulted on the adaption of the HULK system to a self-bunded, high quality 28,000-litre FES Grande tank," noted the spokesperson, adding that when the built-in hydraulic legs are engaged, the truck can drive away.

"The system makes it easy to position and relocate tanks at remote sites without the cost or logistical issues associated with a crane lift."

The new HULK system also means the council can carry high volumes of fuel more safely and securely in a single self-bunded tank, and since the pump is inside a lockable door, the chance of theft is greatly reduced.


FES TANKS are the market leader in self-bunded fuel storage tanks in Australia. Established in 2013, their reputation for offering environmentally friendly fuel storage tanks with unique fuel management solutions has lead to fast growth and expansion. FES TANKS works with Industries on the move to provide innovative next-generation fuel storage solutions designed to take business into the future. For more information, please visit
