• Fuel leakage
Slow leakage can easily go unnoticed, but integrated over time and over hundreds of sites will result in losses measured in tens of thousand of dollars per month.
• Fuel theft
An unauthorized entry to the remote site creates a risk that should be prevented or at least handled on the aftermath. Unauthorized entry is likely to result in fuel theft and equipment being stolen, both having gloomy financial consequences.
• Premature fuel dry-out
Fuel may be drained out from the tank, leaving the site either non-operational or consuming backup energy sources. Both prospects are costly to the organization. Ensuring just-in-time refueling is the optimum solution in this case.
• Inaccurate fuel refilling
Refueling process tends to be inaccurate. The reported fuel quantities may be appreciably different than those actually being transferred to the site. This may result in considerable overpayment to suppliers.
Managing unattended fuel tanks
The key to efficient management of fuel tanks in unattended sites is our four component solution:
• Continuous measurement of fuel level
• Wireless communication link to a central control station
• Intelligent data analysis
• Automated reporting
Continuous measurement of fuel level is enabled by the use of ultrasonic, radar or pressure level meters. An appropriate system must be selected to the specific site, depending on characteristics such as tank dimensions, fuel level span, type of fuel (e.g. explosive prone or not), temperature range and more.
The contract for 3yrs was signed with Hypercom to make it possible to monitor diesel deliveries and consumption online. Other clients such as INTELS, Crestech Engineering, and over 100 organisation have already deployed our solution.
