Tolsma Tankbouw and EUROPOWER Generators: a successful combination!

Ladies and Gentlemen

Since 2010 EUROPOWER has been cooperating with Tolsma Tankbouw, from Heerenveen (the Netherlands), for the production and distribution of Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC). An IBC is a bunded steel container that can be used for the storage of fuel and oil.

Why use an IBC?

When you work on site, you often lose precious time by refuelling elsewhere. If you use a generating set in combination with an IBC, you can considerably increase the autonomy of the generating set. Working with a generating set on site does not have to be interrupted this way and becomes easier. You can use the IBC at events, in road construction and during levelling operations to provide all your machines, like excavators, rollers, bulldozers, forklift trucks, heating and air-conditioning devices, with fuel. In brief, a Tolsma container guarantees safety and continuity while working on site! The container can also be used for road transport. An ADR-permit is obliged for transport of containers as of 500 litres.

Choose safety

To avoid fuel leakage, the Tolsma IBC is bunded. This way you do not risk damaging the environment. With ordinary fuel tanks, the chance is bigger that leakage occurs. Fuel will leak into the soil and soil water will become polluted, with all its consequences. Moreover, the owner/renter/user of the fuel tank is responsible for the costs of cleaning up the soil and excavation works.
