Project overview

Sutton Harbour is the original port of Plymouth in Devon, still a busy fishing port and marina, as well as a spectacular waterfront destination with places to eat, drink, shop and visit.

Amongst the facilities at Sutton Harbour is Plymouth Fisheries, one of the most important fisheries hubs in the UK which plays a crucial role in the local economy. More than 6,000 tonnes of fish are sold from the site every year.

As part of an upgrade at Plymouth Fisheries, a new fuel storage system was installed by contractor OTS Group Ltd, a leader in delivering advanced fuel storage systems.

The system included 50,000L bunded tanks manufactured in the UK by OTS, automated dispensing pods for fuel, electric and water, and fuel control systems with two-inch fuel hoses on motorised wheels. The support system for the fuel storage system required ten metre deep piles and three metre high steel tank supports.
