Harlequin launches new 1100 litre and 3500 litre Bunded Oil Tanks


Leading storage tank manufacturer Harlequin, has previewed two important new additions to the pioneering tank manufacturer's range of environmentally preferred, Bunded Tanks at FPS Expo. The new 1,100 litre and 3,500 litre models both combine the very latest advances in storage tank design, with a manufacturing pedigree that stretches back almost 3 decades.

The 1,100 litre Slimline model is an all-new replacement for the company's long-serving 1100BND/ENV model – the very first bunded tank to be manufactured by the company which first appeared in 1996.

The new model builds upon the success of the original, and combines compact dimensions with the environmental integrity that only integral bunding can afford. Designed to exceed the most demanding technical, environmental and regulatory requirements, the product is already OFCERT Licensed in accordance with the requirements of OFS T100 – the only independently acknowledged standard for the design and manufacture of rotationally moulded bunded tanks in Western Europe.

Harlequin's Marketing Manager John Switzer says, “The new 1,100 litre Bunded complements our existing 1,000 litre and 1,300 litre Slimline Bunded models, as well as the new 650 litre Slimline Bunded which also made its debut at FPS Expo. With four Slimline Bunded options now available in a choice of capacities from 650 litres to 1300 litres, Harlequin offer installers an unrivalled choice at smaller domestic oil heating installations, where space will often be at a premium and where a bunded tank is now normally required.

Also making its debut at FPS Expo is an all-new 3,500 litre Bunded Tank from Harlequin, primarily developed in response to demand from customers in mainland European markets.

John explains, “Our existing 2,700 litre and 5,000 litre models are strong sellers in all markets in which we operate. However, increasingly installers have been asking for a tank which fits somewhere in between, as fuel delivery quantities in some European markets tend to be considerably higher than here in the UK. The new 3500BND/ENV addresses that demand. And whilst we expect that the majority of sales will be outside the British Isles – we are confident that the arrival of a 3,500 litre Bunded Tank option, will provide installers with a useful option for larger domestic and smaller commercial heating oil storage installations.”

Both new models will shortly enter production at Harlequin's Advanced Manufacturing Facility in Moira, Co. Armagh and will be available to order from Harlequin Accredited Resellers throughout the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France and Iceland.
