In addition to the development and supply of our own products, we also offer related services including:
Our refineries and blending facilities in Harwich, Bourgtheroulde and in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg provide more than 80 dedicated specialist fuel formulation tanks, storage tanks from 600 L to 880,000 L and dedicated automated drumming lines.
To prevent any possibility of cross-contamination, each tank is completely separate and independent. As a further precaution, each tank has its own pump and blending jet.
Outstanding blend accuracy is delivered using a highly sophisticated radar gauge system. As a further precaution against contamination or moisture ingress, all products are drummed using a 2 micron filter and hydrophilic cartridge.
All sites are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 approved so that any activity conducted on behalf of customers is of the highest quality. The development and quality control of all products is carried out by the testing laboratory at the site and is accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. To further ease distribution, extensive third party storage facilities are available for bulk and packed products all over the world.
The control and development laboratories at Harwich and Hamburg are well equipped with a range of petrochemical testing and analytical apparatus. The main laboratories includes automatic equipment for measuring density, flash point, aniline point, cold flow properties (e.g. pour point, CFPP), distillation profiles, and vapour pressure. In addition, a comprehensive range of manual equipment and wet chemical techniques covering relevant ASTM and IP methods are also available.
The analytical laboratories have extensive capabilities and expertise in gas and liquid chromatography (GC/FID, Headspace, GC/MS, thermal desorption, Reformulizer, PIONA, HPLC), elemental techniques analysis (Atomic absorption, X ray Fluorescence, atomic fluorescence) and spectroscopy (FTIR, UV-Visible). There are also distillation pilot-plant facilities within Harwich Technical Centre.
