Watson Fuels shortlisted for FPS Green Award 2019

As part of a celebration of environmental initiatives in our industry, we are pleased to be recognised for our industry-leading Ledbury depot that has introduced a range of initiatives to protect the environment against spills, pollution and contamination.

As well as the pioneering use of a reed bed and attenuation pond to ensure the purity of water on the site, our Ledbury depot was rebuilt using block paving and concrete along with an underground membrane to create an almost impenetrable layer. Deep drainage gullies around the storage tank areas were created and designed to feed into interceptors. A security camera system was also installed to protect against possible local environmental damage.

Watson Fuels worked closely with local authorities and the Environment Agency to design the most advanced fuel depot in our portfolio, going above and beyond current requirements. We continue to work with the Environment Agency and local authorities to ensure our depots operate to the highest possible standards.

The winner will be announced at the FPS President’s Awards Ceremony on Wednesday 15th May 2019.
