IPU were called in the investigate issues related to fuel at a site for a critical data storage centre in a secure location.

Challenges faced

IPU Group established that the site had had a critical failure on their generators. A high water table in the area and heavy rains meant the manhole of the underground tank had filled with water. This left the fuel at high risk of water contamination.

Solutions delivered

The IPU Testing service diagnosed the problem and was able to provided key tests to diagnose the exact contaminants and the level of water contamination inside the stored fuel. An IPU Diesel Defence Fuel Polishing system has now been installed to constantly filter the stored fuel, ensuring it is free from water and other forms of contamination.
