Fuel is the often forgotten element to business risk assessment and continuity. Don’t let the “diesel bug” or poor fuel management catch you out!
DIESEL BUG is a recognised problem affecting generators, because of new fuel mixes. Generator failure can be a serious concern when employed as a strategic back-up system in key areas, as this fire-related incident, shows.
Report on power failure at Northwick Park Hospital
“The Director of Corporate Services introduced the report on the emergency generator failure incident at Northwick Park on 3rd February, 2009. It was noted that there had been a mains power failure in the Sudbury area in the early hours of the morning. However, during the power cut, one of the emergency generators developed a problem leading to it being manually restarted. During this time the ward block and other patient areas were without power except for those items of equipment supplied by back up batteries.
An internal incident was declared, an action plan established and progress reported to Executive Directors. It was reported that the manufacturer of the generator was inspecting and re-commissioning the generator. The Chief Executive stated she wanted more generators on site, as too many key clinical areas were reliant on one generator.”
ARE YOU SURE YOU CAN TRUST YOUR STANDBY GENERATOR FUEL?
Your standby generators are there to protect you against catastrophic mains power failure, so obviously the need to ensure they are reliable is paramount.
A GOVERNMENT minister visited a Colne Valley company to find out about the challenges facing smaller firms – and share in its recent successes.
Liberal Democrat peer Lord Newby of Rothwell, who is Treasury spokesman in the House of Lords, toured the Marsden premises of specialist electronics firm Andel Ltd as guest of directors Ian Pogson, Marshall Booth, Mark Harris and Julie Greenwood.
Andel Ltd, a past winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, was one of the success stories of the London Olympics – installing and commissioning several leak detection systems in the main stadium, the white water canoe course and the Olympic village.
Lord Newby found out about the company’s Floodline system, which has been installed by organisations including BAE Systems and West Yorkshire Police to monitor and detect leaks which could damage sensitive and expensive equipment.
Mr Pogson, managing director, said: “Lord Newby is a hard-working life peer who has been very helpful to us over the past year by meeting and greeting our business contacts from Poland and China and arranging visits to the Houses of Parliament for them.
“We wanted him to visit us and meet or staff – and he wanted to see for himself how a small company operates and what kind of challenges we face in a tough economic climate.
“One of the problems is that we don’t have much of a voice and we live in a very different world to many of the people in their ‘ivory towers’ in Bishopsgate.”
Andel Ltd has operations in Poland and is eyeing up opportunities for further Olympic success at Rio 2016 by investigating the market in Brazil.

It wasn't just the sportsmen and sportswomen of GB that were winning Gold at the Olympics this year. We are pleased to announce that Andel Ltd played its part too by supplying, installing and commissioning several pieces of Floodline leak detection equipment in several areas throughout the Olympic Village for the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. The following is an article published by The Huddersfield Examiner:
A COLNE Valley company is sharing in Olympic gold.
Specialist electronic company Andel Ltd played a major part behind the scenes at London 2012 and the Paralympic Games.
The Marsden-based firm supplied, installed and commissioned several leak detection systems in the main stadium, at the white water canoe course and the Olympic village.
The equipment ensured that essential services such as lift pits, CCTV systems, the apartment blocks and the plant room controlling the white water rapids remained secure from unwanted and possibly unnoticed water damage which could have jeopardised daily events.
Now Andel is casting an eye at Brazil – and the 2016 Games.
Mark Harris, commercial director at Andel Ltd, said: “We always take real pride in every client and we believe when you look at our customer list it is a ‘Who’s Who’ of UK businesses and public sector organisations.
“But I have to say all of us at Andel take special pride in the small part we feel we have played in the undoubted success of the London Olympics and the Paralympics Games.”
Mr Harris said Andel approached the architects and consulting engineers about providing its equipment to the Olympics within a year of London winning the bid.
The firm, which has about 35 employees, designed its leak protection systems on computer having been provided with detailed plans of the buildings and sent its engineers to install them.
“Our equipment is designed to protect facilities where even a small flood could prove catastrophic, but where a leak would ordinarily be undetected until it was too late,” said Mr Harris.
Following its London 2012 success, Andel is already looking to the next Olympics at Rio in 2016.
Mr Harris said: “Brazil is our third-biggest export market. It is bigger than anywhere in Europe apart from Italy and we have a very good distributor there. We will be pushing our distributor to pursue potential contracts for the Rio Games.”
Andel, established in 1992, has remained committed to Huddersfield as the headquarters of a business which serves customers across the world – both directly and through distributors.
Its award-winning products and services have been installed in Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, most major banks and telecoms companies, data centres, hospitals, art galleries, libraries and museums.
Earlier this year, the company was shortlisted for the Sustainabilitylive! Innovation Award for Environmental Technology – pitting the business against major industry names.
