Hi-G-Tek installs fuel distribution monitoring system for Rompetrol
May 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Hi-G-Tek (www.higtek.com), a developer of RFID sensing and control systems for tracking high-value cargo and sensitive materials, has installed a fuel distribution monitoring system for the Rompetrol Group (www.rompetrol.com), a multinational oil company operating in 13 nations.
The Hi-G-Tek system monitors and communicates real-time information regarding the fuel in the company's secondary distribution chain, from depot to pump, in both Romania and Bulgaria. Data captured by the active-RFID Hi-G-Tek system is processed and then transmitted to Rompetrol's enterprise software system, which receives and records the information letting Rompetrol track and monitor inventory, deliveries, and asset levels real-time.
Rompetrol uses Hi-G-Tek's wireless remote sensing technology to monitor and secure both standard gas stations and unattended, automated gas stations. The unattended stations are remote freestanding facilities in isolated areas of Romania and Bulgaria with aboveground tanks secured with electronic seals. The Rompetrol system also includes the Hi-G-Tek Tanker Truck Monitoring Solution (TTMS), providing real-time visibility during transport and delivery to fuel stations.
The Rompetrol project employs Hi-G-Seals, Data Readers, and reusable Hi-G-Locks to secure and track fuel tanks while in transit, providing automated visibility for an approximately 2,000-mile supply chain. Seals are used on in-ground tanks at the gas stations, while the readers prevent product crossover and grade mixing by sounding an alarm to alert technicians of potential grade contamination. Hi-G-Locks work to secure container doors and provide automatic warnings of unauthorized tanker access.
