Cameron Forecourt are delighted to have successfully retained the service contract with facilities management experts, Kier Workplace Services, to provide support and maintenance services to the vehicle refuelling systems operated by Sussex Police.  


Cameron Forecourt are experts in fuelling equipment management and the UK industry leader in commercial refuelling systems and have many years of experience in maintaining fuelling operations at their customers’ sites ensuring continued and efficient operation of fuelling facilities.


Kier Workplace Services operates a full facilities management service on behalf of Sussex Police.  A key part of this contract sees Kier currently managing the fuelling facilities used by the force to refuel their commercial emergency service vehicles.


In total Cameron Forecourt maintains 19 separate fuelling sites under Kier Service’s contract with Sussex Police.


Kier Workforce Services partners with key suppliers to provide its facilities management services as necessary. Cameron Forecourt were selected to maintain Sussex Police fuelling sites for which Kier has overall facilities management responsibility for.


Cameron Forecourt’s experience points to the fact that regular inspection and preventive maintenance to fuelling equipment extends the life of the equipment and often reduces the incidence of faults requiring specialist repairs. Further to this regular professional maintenance inspection to fuelling equipment reduces the potential of ground contamination through leakage.


Cameron Forecourt’s preventive maintenance operations include inspection and functional testing of the equipment.  During inspections, particular attention is paid to signs of leaks or potential leaks, which could obviously be both costly and inconvenient to customers should they arise.


Kier Workplace Services, part of the Kier Group, provides workplace solutions to both the public and private sectors and focusses on three main aspects of the workplace to provide clients with the optimal working environment; physical workplace solutions, vital workplace services and workplace transformation. 


The emergency services need to provide a quick and efficient response where the availability of vehicles, fully fuelled and ready to go at any time is a prerequisite.  This contract ensures the efficient operation of the fuelling sites which are relied on daily by Sussex Police. 


At the 19 fuelling sites, Cameron Forecourt carries out a range of regular maintenance and test activities, including fuel pump service and calibration, electrical installation testing, below ground tank inspection and TLS tank gauge and probe tests. 


“We were pleased to be partnering with fuelling experts Cameron Forecourt,” states Adrian Ellliott of Kier Services.  “Through their fuelling maintenance and testing expertise, we were confident that the Sussex Police fuelling sites will be kept fully efficient and operational, especially given the company’s reactive response team which is located in the area,” he added. 

“We have a long history of maintaining fuelling systems for our customers and I am sure that this was a key factor in Kier Services deciding to continue to work with us for this particular three-year maintenance contract for Sussex Police,” Martyn Gent, Sales and Marketing Director at Cameron Forecourt states.  “We have worked for a number of forces across the UK and were confident that our engineers can keep these three sites operating efficiently.”

About Sussex Police

Sussex Police serves the rural and urban counties of East and West Sussex and the cosmopolitan city of Brighton & Hove. Millions of visitors, holidaymakers, students and seasonal workers from the UK and overseas swell the resident population of 1.63 million people, with an additional 39 million passengers travelling through Gatwick Airport each year.


The force has almost 2,700 police officers and 2,100 police staff, including Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) and a team of dedicated volunteers that includes over 400 Special Constables and around 180 Police Cadets. The roles of uniformed officers who respond to calls and PCSOs that work out in the community are probably familiar to most people. But policing involves a wide range of different functions, many of which aren't visible to the public but are nonetheless an essential part of how we police.
