Tanker fleet expansion boosts work volumes at Lanes
Drainage and water utilities specialist Lanes Group plc has grown its service capability with continued investment in a modern tanker fleet.
In five years, the company has built a fleet of 60 tankers to support contracts with three water companies and a growing number of commercial customers.
Roland Leslie, General Manager of the Lanes Tankering Division, said: “Developing our tankering capability is allowing us to win new business and better serve existing Lanes customers.
“Our tanker fleet is strategically located across the UK, supporting geographic expansion and the development of new markets, including food production, renewable energy generation, and highways maintenance.”
Lanes delivers framework tankering contracts for Severn Trent, Anglian Water and Thames Water. Tankers are also used to support a wet well cleaning contract for Northumbrian Water.
Lanes tankering capability is augmented by its investment in specialist vehicles, including both DISAB and KOKS Cyclovac ultra high volume wet and dry vacuumation tankers.
“This is allowing us to integrate our tankering services with our sewer and industrial cleaning expertise to deliver a full-service cleaning and bulk liquid and sludge tankering service,” said Roland Leslie.
“Our end-to-end service is a safer, more sustainable, and more cost-effective way to manage and transport waste and industrial by-products, including hazardous waste.”
Lanes works closely with clients to make bulk liquid and sludge movements as sustainable and cost-effective as possible, through selecting the right tankers, streamlining transport systems and supporting dewatering initiatives.
The company operates a full range of tankers, including 3,000, 4,000 and 6,000-gallon tankers on both rigid and articulated chassis.
Services delivered include sludge transportation, leachate removal, non-hazardous effluent transportation and hazardous waste removal using ADR-rated tankers.
