Concept development


U-Cont was a partner in the development of the Uno-X Light concept from the beginning. As a result of the development work, the customer saves about 30% of the costs for each completed job as compared to the previous one, and the sales of the fuel chain in the chain have exceeded expectations

In the summer of 2012, Kevitsa Mining Oy's mining distribution system was installed, and safety was key in its development work. A high level of safety was ensured, for example, with stone protection, fire protection and double-shell and insulated HFB tank construction. In addition, the system was built to be moved.

In addition to visually breathtaking looks, the result of the development work was the creation of very safe, user-friendly and cost-effective distribution stations. Cost-effectiveness is ensured, amongst other things, by minimized earthwork, thermal stabilization and low cost and safe maintenance. Distributing stations are fire-proof and shock-proof. Truck stations are delivered with both vertical and horizontal tanks.

Filling stations


U-Cont is a partner of the Norwegian Uno-X Hydrogen in hydrogen discharge solutions. The first co-operative hydrogen distribution unit was opened in Norway in 2016. U-Cont is currently responsible for partnering in conceptual and product development, linking hydrogen technology to traditional fuels distribution, piping and canopy solutions.

Bunker Oil's distribution station in Kristiansund, Norway, represents a very modern approach to distribution stability and its technical solutions. Pipes from the tank have been drawn to the meters from the canopy, minimizing earthwork and, for example, the risks caused by fires. In addition, the condition of the pipes is easy to control and maintenance is safe and handy. The canopy is rounded from one end and the other is secured to the tanks, giving the station a unique look. The two-compartment vertical container has a combined volume of 100 m³. The system includes a third smaller AdBlue tank

In summer 2013, U-Cont delivered one of Finland's largest distribution stations to Oulu, renewed in Limingantullin Prisma, under the order of Osuuskauppa Arina. The canopy of the distribution station is the largest area ever made and it has special design. Prisma's traffic is guided from the center of the canopy and the distribution fields, each with three islands, are located at the ends of a boomerang-shaped canopy.

Nowadays, Norway's Mo i Ranas AdContain, which operates in the name of YX, was completed by the end of 2012. This heavy duty refueling station has been implemented with a vertical tank with gullwings. The logger's doors can be lowered, for example, during a storm. AdContain's basic features include special durability, easy service, safety, visual appeal and significant cost savings.

Adcontain distribution system can be seen now in your trip to our factory in joroinen. Tower tansk visible in a 5-way. The system's protection level is very high and its condition is easy to control. In addition, the environmental safety of the system is top class

Kemi's mining project in 2010 was U-Contin's first mining filling station project. The project made a challenging ground-based tank below which the refueling points were placed: the refueling points are located at depths of 350 and 500 meters. The system is fully automated and the security arrangements in this project were particularly strict. Despite the stringent requirements, the entirety became functional and cost-effective.

The Bedzin, built in 2004 on the motorway 1, is one of seven service stations built for the Slovnaft chain in Poland. The station has four miter sails and has a capacity of 120 m3. Bedzin's position has been set up as a metal support specially designed for large canopies. One of the chain stations had to make an exceptional foundation to protect the gas station from the micro movement of the earth due to the damage caused by mining to the soil. Slovnaft then sold its fuel chain to the Lotos chain

This distribution station was built in 2010 in Korpilahti harbor. Due to the water level in the soil, the station was carried out with tank half on the ground. Half of the terrestrial tank is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective solution as it significantly shortens the underground pipelines and the filling site becomes easier to observe. Additionally, this allows direct access to the tank top. Environmental protection was particularly prominent in the project, because when it comes to nature, fuel can permanently damage sensitive lake habitats

St. Petersburg's Shell was one of our first Russian Shells. The project was implemented as U-Cont station. The choice was largely influenced by St. Petersburg's famous soil: the small space requirement and the shortest possible pipelines in the ground-based land have significant cost and security benefits.

Kostrzyn is the first U-Contin Polish subsidiary to provide a large four-meter and 100 m3 capacity distribution station. The station is located in western Poland close to the German border. The station was installed in the spring of 2004 in severe weather conditions and the proximity of the river Odra added to the project its own challenge. The station was one of Poland's first, whose meters can be fueled with both calor gas and conventional fuels.

Otwock's gas station was built in record time of U-Cont Poland: a 35-day 2000 m2 road was completed, a 400 m2 trade, three 100m3 of an island's capacity and a gas refueling module.

The ABC-Juva is a compact, highly-designed sales unit for a small area with three fuel rods and one water-air island in the 10 × 30 meter area. Environmental risks are minimized by short pipelines and fully twin-flanged structures. However, this large entity was also advantageous due to the reasonably small construction and surface area needs.

Neste Ruka is a good example of a miniature mini-station: a small roof was used and only a 30 m3 tank to minimize costs. The station was implemented with the U-Cont solution to reduce installation time and space requirement.

Oravi's filling station is a good example of a small boat station. The station is located at the port of Oravi in Savonlinna and it has a two compartment tank with a total volume 30 m3. The meter is located about 15 meters from the beach. The refueling pipes are 20 meters long, allowing for smooth refueling even when boats are moving.

Esso Hirvaskangas was originally designed for transferring and if needed, split into two different positions from a few years to a new location. Today, these U-Cont elements serve on the same site, but at a different location in ABC Hirvaskangas.



HFB tanks are delivered to Savon Voima in size ranges from 30m3 to 100 m3. There are hundreds of heavy oil tanks manufactured in Finland in the 1970s and 1980s, which have reached their end of life. HFB series tanks made for Savon Voima Oyj are the answer to this need.

U-Cont has delivered underground tanks to sprinkler water tanks. These containers can for example, be placed under the parking which is requiring large amounts of water in the sprinkler system. The example below shows an example of a sprinkler tank project where a total capacity of 300 m3 single-coil sprinkler tanks was delivered to Motonet in Tornio.

During its history U-Cont has produced a wide range of silos. The last major silage delivery was made to Fazer during 2016. For Oy Karl Fazer Ab, 30 silos were produced, in the size range of 14.5 m3 to 78 m3. Silo delivery is part of the extension of the oat mill.

During its history, U-Cont Oy has supplied hundreds of containerized tanks with Russia as the main market. If necessary, there is also the possibility of containers with sea container design, making it easier and cheaper to transport them internationally. The following standard dimensions can be used for container capacity: 60m3 40ft highcube container, 50m3 40ft container, 44m3 30ft highcube container, 39m3 30ft container, 25m3 20ft container.

An example of a sprinkler tank project and making large containers is the tanks that are already in the picture below. The larger tank size is 130 m3 and the system can accommodate a total of 480 m3 of water.

Underground and aboveground douplewalled tanks in accordance with standard SFS-EN 12285-2 and SFS-EN 12285-1 with a range of 3m3 to 150 m3 with versatile equipment and special solutions as required.

Back-up power solutions


Mäntsälä was installed in the 2014 machine room with a U-Contin fuel system with the reserve power plant. The cornerstone of the project was extensive content delivery, cost-effectiveness, project management, flexibility, durability and ease of customer experience. The delivery included the entire fuel system: tanks, piping, filtration, pumping and control systems as well as necessary services from design to installation.

Process systems


Finnish St1 Biofuels contacted our company when it started manufacturing ethanol plants to order ordinary process tanks. U-Contilla we paid attention to factory modulation and overall process thinking. With the discussion, U-Cont participated in the project, but not only as a container supplier, but also involved in the development of the whole concept and in the subsequent process: design, production, logistics, installation and service

An isopropanol system was delivered to Orion in 2010. The system includes a stainless steel storage tank with weighing, heated ATEX-rated device lighting, pumps and valves, and SMS 3008 standard piping with filters. The system is controlled by Orion's factory system. In 2011, the system was updated with a filling system for transferring isopropanol from the ibc- container to the storage tank.

The water-glycol system was delivered to WinWinD's factory in 2009. U-Cont supplied included connections to the ibc- container, pumps, piping, valves, mixing tank and operating logic installed and commissioned. The system can make 30 to 60 percent of the water-glycol mixture and run the mixture into the cooling system. The implementation is based on Siemens's logic.

Junttan's project in Kuopio is a good example of how we have been able to help the customer with our own know-how and save the customer's resources for other uses. Junttan was supplied with several quality oil equipment with suction and filling systems. There are four tanks for storing and supplying different grades of oil as needed. U-Cont always implemented the project from design to installation.
