Western Global’s Abbi Blue Receives Recognition from Plantworx
In early 2015, Western Global launched the Abbi Blue, a double walled/fully bunded bowser that combines fuel/diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) storage and transportation all in one.

The innovative Abbi Blue was highly commended in efficiency by Plantworx. This dual system eliminates the need for an additional DEF unit and speeds up refueling operations.
The Abbi Blue has been engineered to hold 1500 litres (396 US gallons) of fuel and 160 litres (42 US gallons) of DEF. A smaller model is available that can store 950 litres (250 gallons) of fuel and 160 litres (42 US gallons) of DEF to eliminates the need for an ADR certificate. To ensure the tank is contaminant-free, both the compartments and the pumps are separated to avoid any cross contamination.
A key feature which increases the lifespan of the tank is the direct access to the inner tank for cleaning which has been greatly received from users. An agricultural farmer located in Somerset, UK expressed his delight at the efficiency and ease of use by saying, “The tank really speeds up the amount of time I was spending on having DEF in a separate tank. The access means I can clearly see inside should any issues arise”.
The Abbi Blue is UN approved IBC (Intermediate Bulk Container) suitable for transporting diesel fuel on the road. Like other Abbi models, the Abbi Blue is double walled/fully bunded to ensure environmental compliance with pollution prevention guidelines. All of our approvals ensure the upmost quality for our customers.
The Plantworx 2015 awards coincide with the equipment industry’s re-emergence from years of enforced concentration of research and development designed solely to make machines cleaner and greener. The Abbi Blue was chosen as highly commended by the Plantworx Innovation Awards. Western Global is honored to have been given this prestigious recognition.
The increase in attention from the construction industry will continue to grow due to the introduction of the next tranche of Euro-6 emission regulations, which applies to light commercial diesel vehicles that are type approved beginning in September 2015.
Western Global is very proud of the success the Abbi Blue has had since its launch and is always looking to design innovative solutions for industries alike.
