One of 16 tanks ordered by Essex Bulk Services through Tankquip to fulfil the TarmacMortars contract they won against stiff competition in the industry. Designed especially for this job the tanks are 31cu mt capacity and feature a compact footprint with lift up axles front and rear to maximise manouverability and minimise tyre wear. The specially built tanks replace rigid multi-wheelers and provide both productivity and environmental benefits. The gain in payload reduces road miles significantly for Tarmac and their contractor Essex Bulk, reducing traffic congestion and the carbon footprint of both companies. All the latest FORS requirements are included on the tanks with cyclist keep clear signs and Brigade left-turn indicator alarm. Operator safety during loading and unloading is also fully recognised with an emergency stop system that de-pressurises the tank and cuts off material flow.
