Oilfast expands tanker fleet with new Volvo FEs

Oilfast Volvo FE

Scottish fuel distribution company Oilfast has expanded its fleet with five new Volvo FE 6x2 Rigid Tankers.

The new vehicles, which cost more than £700,000, will be used to deliver products including heating oil, red diesel, derv and licensed AdBlue to Oilfast’s domestic and commercial customers.

They will operate out of the company’s Crieff, Grangemouth and Insch depots, in Scotland. 

Each tanker has a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 26 tonnes giving them a maximum carrying capacity of 17,500 litres. In addition, the tanks are equipped with five compartments to carry multiple products at once.

William Nicol, transport & operations director at Oilfast, said: "Our vehicle investment for 2021 is now over £1million. With a further eight tankers coming in 2022 this takes our total investment in vehicles to over £2.5million in two years. As we grow, it's important we reinvest back into the areas that got us here in the first place. We are extremely excited to see the next generation of Oilfast tankers out on the road and hopefully, our customers are too."
