Tardis and the Crossrail project

Link

Screen Shot 2014-10-31 at 11.44.44

Crossrail, the largest engineering project in Europe and Tardis has been part of it.

In a nutshell, Crossrail is 73 miles of railway set to serve London and the south east, improving journey times and connecting with many existing lines.

As a supplier of goods and services to the project, Tardis Environmental have invested heavily in our fleet to make them “Crossrail compliant”. This includes the provision of safety equipment that is additional to the level we already send our vehicles to work carrying.

44tonne tanker

Fresnel lenses for example, smaller but similar to those found in lighthouses in this instance they are used to bend light allowing a driver to see personnel or cyclists approaching on the inside blind spot.

Side scan detection is now standard Crossrail  equipment, designed to detect cyclists or pedestrians in close proximity to the nearside.

In practice, audible tones or warnings exterior to the vehicle are triggered when the left hand indicator is activated and should there be a person detected in the field of the scan, the driver inside the cab is alerted by audible tone also.

Some side scan systems have the added safety of exterior cameras greatly reducing the chance of a mishap.

In addition, warning livery is added to the vehicle as are under run bars down each side.

Woe betide any contractor who fails to meet the high standards lain down by Crossrail. Exclusion from all sites and fines meted out often being the penalty.

Safety is in everyone’s interest. Our spec sheets detail our Crossrail compliant vehicles which of course can be used elsewhere, where stringent safety is practised.

Bulk Water Anyone?

Do you need a bulk water supply?

If you are working at a construction site and there is no mains water, then the next best thing is a supply on bulk water. Bulk water can either can as a large 6,000 gallon water tank or a 4,000 galloon trailered ISO water tank. These are mainly for someone who has machines that need a lot of water like a hydro demolition company or if you have a large welfare unit that needs a lot of water. If you think you going to need an ISO water tank for a constant bulk water supply then a static ISO Tank would be a better choice for you.

6000 Gallon Water Tank

Bulk water tanks are not the only solution. You could hire a water bowser which is smaller and easier to find a place for. There are a few types of water bowsers that you need to keep in mind. First of you can have the massive 10,000 litre water bowser if the 4,000 gallon ISO Water tankis too big.

Large Water Bowser

Then we have our 2,000 litre static and towable water bowsers.

The static water bowser is much like the large water bowser where it will stay in one place. The towable water is highly mobile with its off road tyres. The towable bowser is placed on a trailer which can then be hooked up to a tow bar and transported to another location with ease.

All our ISO bulk water tanks and our water bowsers can also come with an electric on demand water pump for a better flow of water. Petrol water pumps are also available.

For any more information on any of our services please call 0800 731 0589

So what will the new tractor unit be doing?

The main services the tractor unit will be performing will be delivering our 4,000 gallon and our 6,000 gallons bulk water tanks. Our H2O bulk water tanks can be used for anything. Our bulk water tanks have been used for hydro demolition, where a mains water supply was not available our bulk water tanks have even been used as an emergency bulk water supply at the airport as they were upgrading the water facilities and had to turn off the water while they upgrade.

Not only will our new tractor unit be hauling bulk water around the country but it will sometimes be used to perform a septic tank emptying service. The 44ton tractor unit can haul our massive 6,000 gallon wet waste tank, this means we will be able to empty a commercial septic tank as most septic tanks mainly domestic septic tank can only hold 1,000 gallons.
