During the Covid-19 period, the Wolftank Adisa team is in continuous contact with its customers all over the world. The impact on the downstream business is huge as in some countries a decrease of fuel consumption beyond 80% is observed.
Most construction activities in gas stations are stopped, we have many reports of customers that even the already budgeted construction projects are rescheduled and taken out of the 2020 budget. This includes also most tank substitution projects which cannot be carried out due to bureaucratic issues, logistic issues and the high number of workers from different companies. Hence, companies cannot make such operations during the Covid-19 phase.
Most of these problems are not faced in tank lining!
Small teams of around 3 workers per site are enough to carry out a single wall EPOFLEX® or a double wall DOPA® tank lining within a few days. COVID-19 risks are completely mitigated as on the sites of our customers technicians are experienced to work with filer masks since many years. This is a huge opportunity to give to the tanks 20-30 years more life time in a phase where the fuel sales are dropped to a minimum. In a few days tanks can be made ready for the phase after covid19 and the next decades. Not only construction companies but also station owner highly appreciate the possibility to make tank lining in this period.Read more about double wall tank lining in our DOPA® Lite case study in Germany or DOPA® 6n tank lining in China.
