Prevent diesel fuel spills and contamination with Transcube’s DOT-approved transportable fuel tanks, which are double walled and provide 110-percent secondary containment of the inner container’s total capacity. The secondary containment system eliminates the need for a separate containment pan, and the tanks have no bottom or side exterior outlets that could cause spillage. The Transcube line offers tanks with 132, 264, 528 and 792 gallons, and can feed up to three generators and refuel equipment at the same time. Internal baffles prevent fuel surge during transport, ensuring reliability when transporting fuel to remote locations.
