With over 50million litres of liquid to deal with each year from a 2.3MW digester, we need to be very efficient on how we handle our slurry. 90% of our land is away from the plant - some up to 10miles away. It was clear that we would need to use tankers to make the most of the digestate across all of our ground. There are plenty of tanker manufacturers to choose from, but it was Major Equipment Ltd that sat down with us a really talked us through the most suitable solution for our operation. We now have four Major 3500-gallon tandem tankers in our fleet. Having tandem axles makes a big difference to stability on the road.

In order to provide a highly reliable and efficient service to our customers, we researched the bulk tanker market to establish which machines would best suit a high output capability. We spoke to Major and did the deal on three 3500-gallon Major tankers on twin axles with a steerable rear-axle, hydraulic and air brakes and a high performance 13000 litre per minute vacuum pump. In the past 12 months, we’ve hauled 26,500 cu metres of liquid waste from the AD plant to a giant tanker and dribble-bar applicator that injects and spreads the liquid waste mainly onto arable stubble fields, ready for cultivation. Each Major 3500 tanker holds around sixteen cubic metres and only takes around four minutes to load so we are normally moving around twenty to twenty five loads or more a day to the field sites. Because we need to provide the best service to our customers, day-in, day-out, we’ll only use the most reliable of equipment. These Major tankers are far superior to anything else on the market and that reflects our business philosophy of doing the job right every time and on-time.
