Terminal Automation Project Feature
Tank Storage Magazine: April/May 2017 Edition
MHT Technology have completed a successful Terminal Automation project in Ireland for Flynn Fuels, part of Thomas Flynn & Sons. The project has enabled the oil distributor to expand services and cut costs.
Flynn Fuels wanted to expand their operation to allow authorised fuel tankers to load product from a new, unmanned site. MHT’s Tank Gauging software, VTW was installed which integrated with new gauges on the storage tanks. SmartTAS Terminal Automation Software interfaced to the load computer and VTW, ensuring that only authorised drivers and vehicles could take product from the site.
Flynn Fuels can log in to the system from Head Office to manage stock levels, drivers, vehicles, orders, review transactions and print Bills of Lading. Because of the remote location of the site, an SMS modem was installed to send Unauthorised Movement Alarms by text message to a nominated member of the Flynn Fuels team.
