STOKOTA offers tank semitrailers, trailers and superstructures in aluminium or stainless steel for the transport of both non-ADR and ADR products like fuel, heating oil, LPG and aircraft fuel.


While designing our tank vehicles, our target is to reach optimal efficiency and the lowest possible kerb weight in combination with the highest safety standards. The use of 3D design and Finite Elements Analysis allow us to build light constructions without losing quality or safety levels.


The tanks are automatic welded and accurately tested: radiographic checks on the welded joints, pressure tests, capacity measurement, safe loading tests, and brake tests.


After delivery you can also count on us for total service: servicing of your tank vehicle, calibration of measuring instruments, and tests of your vehicle. Our sales and engineering team always accompanies you with their professional support and advice.


In our offer we also have bitumen semitrailers for the transport of asphalt, crude oil or other products that must be kept hot during transportation. The semitrailers are pressure thermally insulated so that the contents of the tank will stay hot and liquid while being transported to the place of destination.


Another product in this group is the aircraft refueller. Whether it is a fuel truck or a fuel semitrailer you need, STOKOTA has the vehicle for you.
We also offer water tanks for the transport of drinkable water or water for irrigation.

» Fuel semitrailers

» Fuel tank trucks

» Fuel trailers

Bitumen semitrailers

We offer bitumen semitrailers in steel or in stainless steel. The tanks have a (stainless) steel body with a 100 mm coating of thermal insulation, again covered with a sheet of aluminium. The working temperature of the contents is around 250°C and the working pressure is around a maximum of 2 bar. The inside temperature is clearly given on a thermometer.
