New Tech To Eliminate Pilferage At Fuel Service Stations

New Tech To Eliminate Pilferage At Fuel Service Stations

Fueltec Zimbabwe (Pvt) Ltd says it will soon introduce an automatic tank gauging system for the petroleum industry to improve efficiency.

In a recent interview with The Herald, Fueltec managing director Bernard Garwe said the system will remove human error in the fuel industry.

Garwe also said his company had already started a pilot project for the system with most of the major local oil companies. Said Garwe:

We have introduced automation to the fuel industry, which basically removes human error because as you know at a service station you have to reconcile what you have sold and what you have put in the (storage) tank.

We normally use dipsticks for that and people take readings from the pumps as you know wherever we have a human element, there is also the possibility of error and also sometimes things like theft can happen as well because of the involvement of human beings.

So, we are saying on a site we can actually minimize that by automating most of the processes such as taking the levels from the tank, checking the quality of the product in terms of its density and also things like what has gone through the tank.

We are coming through with new technologies in line with global trends such as automatic tank gauging and automation of sites, and remote site management.

The automatic tank gauging system is used in first world countries such as the US, United Kingdom and Switzerland, and also in developing countries such as South Africa.

@Fuel Attendant. Don't worry zvako, your employers will not use this technology because if they did, they would not be able to also steal from themselves.­čśé­čśé­čśé­čśé­čśé­čśé
