Tank Trucks Loading Gantry
We have fourteen (14) loading bays with fourteen loading arms, all equipped with pre-set metering systems to control the loading and delivery of various petroleum products. Our loading arms can load an impressive seven million litres of petroleum products within eight hours.
We use the AccuLoad system on each loading bay to ensure accuracy, precision, efficiency and safety of our distribution process. It also enables reliable truck loading and a 100% reduction in customer downtime.
We have fourteen high capacity pumps – engineered for operational flexibility, efficiency and durability – dedicated to each of the loading arms. Decanting pumps are in place to enable product transfer from trucks into storage tanks.
We have a robust pipeline system that comprises cargo receipt lines distinct from product loading lines, all with separate manifolds. Each line is dedicated to a particular product. This keeps our products segregated and ensures zero contamination
Truck Parking Bay and Standby Power Supply
We have a truck-parking bay in the terminal, which accommodates over fifty trucks. We also have four generators on standby.
