Case Study: Pharmaceutical Emergency Fuel Supply

Many businesses that rely on fuel to keep their operations running smoothly don’t stop after the standard 8-5 day, particularly the healthcare industry. To ensure we’re there for when you need us most, we provide a 24/7 emergency service that’s available to all industries, to avoid critical disaster.

During the Christmas holidays, our sister company Crown Oil, received a call on their out of hours emergency phone line from a pharmaceutical company based in Scotland.

The problem

They had experienced a power cut and required immediate fuel for their backup generators. Many pharmaceutical companies have 24/7 operations and therefore require uninterrupted power supply. When mains power is lost, emergency power must be provided instantaneously to avoid costly delays and a damaged reputation.

Every second counts. For every minute of downtime, the company would lose significant revenue.

The Crown Environmental solution

After a quick consultation over the phone the team soon realised that they needed a supply in a matter of hours. We were able to send a tanker onsite that very evening to directly power the generators. This meant there was no downtime and no cost to their business as they could remain online throughout an operational crisis. Our emergency fuel delivery service is invaluable for any business that needs 100% uptime.

Tank telemetry monitoring

Since their near disaster, the company now has a number of sensors installed in their tanks under a bespoke telemetry system. This enables them to monitor fuel levels and contamination levels at just the click of a mouse. That way, they’ll never risk running out of fuel again.
