Fuel and flooding experts at Data Centre World 2015

Adler and Allan, leaders in oil and environmental services, will be exhibiting at Data Centre World, taking place at London’s ExCel, 11-12th March 2015. The two-day event brings together data centre experts and service providers from across the globe, with exhibition stands as well as a series of conferences led by key industry speakers.

Stand C85 will play host to Adler and Allan’s team, ready to advise on how to ensure data centres keep running through fuel polishing and general tank services, as well as the pertinent matter of flood mitigation. Alan Scrafton, Group Marketing Manager, at Adler and Allan, explained:

“With most data centres holding large amounts of fuel to feed generators as back-up power, it is vital that the quality and cleanliness of the fuel within storage tanks is maintained to minimise the risk of blockage, contamination or fuel system wear. Our tank services are available 24/7 to keep businesses running smoothly.

“In addition, flooding poses an ever-increasing threat to data centres. Businesses need to protect their assets, actioning risk assessments and implementing flood mitigation steps to minimise the damage flooding can cause. It is far better for businesses to be proactive, rather than reactive; think long-term, calculate the risk to protect these often essential facilities.”

Fuel and flooding experts
For data centres with oil generators, Adler and Allan can provide regular maintenance programmes to ensure fuel quality, helping to reduce downtime and maintenance costs. Its mobile tank cleaning service can treat any amount of fuel from 3,000 to 100,000 litres per hour, using custom-built fuel polishing and tank cleaning units in a safe and efficient environment.

Where flooding is concerned, Adler and Allan carried out rigorous Flood Risk Assessments (FRA), establish a flood plan and then put in place the appropriate flood defences, which could range from lightweight demountable systems to our newest product, JBAR, a modular flood defence system which can also provide spill containment.

The entire team that attended today were completely professional and are a credit to Adler And Allan. Due to the nature and extent of the works, they were monitored throughout the activity and at no point did they conduct themselves in a less than professional manner. The works were visible to all persons within the building and demonstrated the professional supply partners that Norland use. Well done!
