A range of bespoke specialist environmental products and services for electricity distribution companies and site operators
Andel has worked in this specialist sector for over 30 years, providing peace of mind to electricity distribution companies and site operators throughout the UK
Andel's experience in this sector started In 1992, when in response to the UK electricity industry's urgent need for an effective dewatering solution at substation sites across the UK, Andel launched BundGuard®, now the market-leading bund dewatering system. With considerable hands-on experience, Andel has gained invaluable insight into the daily challenges of electricity distribution companies and site operators and works with some of the largest public and private sector organisations in the UK.
It is also Andel's pledge to be a net-carbon zero business by 2025 and our services are designed to minimise environmental impact and to help customers achieve their own environmental objectives.

Stored Fuel Maintenance
Is your stored diesel fuel ready for an emergency?
Failure to maintain stored fuel and storage tanks could be a disaster waiting to happen.
Site operators rely on the continuity of their electricity supply. Because modern fuel contains lower sulphur content and significantly higher amounts of biodiesel, bacterial and fungal growth are both common in stored fuel. Microbial contamination, known as the diesel bug, is a problem that faces every substation site storing fuel.
Contaminated fuel supplies will result in at best machinery not operating efficiently and at worst in total breakdown. Failure to regularly inspect stored fuel and storage tanks can result in emergency, mission-critical equipment failing, when you need it most.
A cost-effective solution
Andel provides a comprehensive range of oil storage maintenance services including:
- Site surveys and fuel sampling – providing effective, early warning of potential problems
- Fuel and tank maintenance – removal of contaminated fuel, thoroughly cleaning tanks of contamination, filtering, polishing and stabilising the fuel using specialist state-of-the-art remedial equipment, then returning the refreshed fuel to the clean tank.
- Permanent filtration systems – installation of permanent fuel oil polishing systems to your tanks to regularly circulate the fuel and remove contaminants.
Pollution prevention and compliance
Andel has been carrying out oil storage compliance inspections for over 30 years for both public and private sector customers. Andel can ensure that robust pollution prevention measures are in place and your site’s fuel storage is fully compliant with regulatory requirements.
Inspections are carried out by OFTEC registered, qualified technicians and provide detailed reports for all on-site fuel storage equipment.
Andel’s annual oil storage compliance inspections go beyond standard OFTEC recommendations to give you total peace of mind that your oil storage remains compliant with all current regulations.
Andel offers a range of innovative products for any size of fuel and oil storage installation.
