Fuel Storage Solutions (FSS) is an award winning OFTEC-registered provider of complete commercial and industrial fuel storage solutions. Co-Directors Jonathan and Katharine Barnett launched the business in 2002, establishing it 20 years later as one of the UK’s leading, most well-respected fuel system solutions providers.
FSS is a privately owned family business headquartered in Thornton village, at the heart of Brontë country, in a former Methodist chapel, which was fully restored and converted to provide the platform for sustained growth. From this base they supply services across the British Isles and Ireland, including remote locations such as the Hebrides, the Highlands of Scotland and the Falkland Islands.
Market sectors serviced include banking, distribution and logistics, undertakers, facilities management companies, food prep, pharma and public sector organisations, including the police, armed forces, NHS, ambulance services and The Environment Agency.
The company has been recognised in the first ever King’s Awards for Enterprise – Innovation, for inventing, designing, patenting and bringing to market their APIApipe™ product – a unique ‘pipe in a pipe’ fully bunded system.
Managing Director Jonathan Barnett says: “We’re delighted to be honoured with this award. It’s a tremendous achievement for our team who’ve worked tirelessly to make APIApipe™ successful. APIApipe™ is the safest, most robust and cos teffective system available on today’s market, being suitable for use by any business that stores fuels, liquids or gases that are transported through pipework. We’re proud to put Bradford on the map for innovation excellence.”
This fully bunded ‘fit and forget’ pipework system ensures 100% uptime and is typically only 40% of the cost of traditional welded pipework due to the simple assembly system. There are no hot works involved thereby avoiding special measures during installation.
Corrosion-proof stainless-steel pipework requires no additional surface protection, which reduces costs further. APIApipe™ is approved for use by Government agencies and specified for use by several consultancies.
