VIVA Energy – Case Study
One of the largest areas of concern for any operation is the fear of a leaking tank. Adding to the consequences, even a small fuel leak can result in legal and cleanup costs and potential fines by the EPA. Whilst Viva Energy’s existing fuel management process had prevented these hazards to date, they recognised significant inefficiencies in their current processes and required a more transparent fuel management system. Wanting to proactively advance their business performance, Viva sought help from our team at EMS.
Viva Energy needed complete visibility of what was going on in their tanks at all times. They wanted to ensure they had access to accurate site data, quickly, efficiently and at a low cost.
Upon deploying EMS’ Fuelsuite system, Viva Energy gained access to reliable, secure, and real-time data from their tanks around the country – anytime, and anywhere. Not only does Fuelsuite reduce the likelihood of tank errors, it also removes the complexity of fuel management by ensuring Viva’s site data is accessible at all times via a contemporary cloud-based platform.
“The direct connectivity of Fuelsuite has allowed us to identify issues and map a history of events on each site. In once instance, there had been high water alarms oscillating on a tank. When mapped against the deliveries to the site, it was noted that the high water level was occurring at the same time of the deliveries. This ended up being due to the physical configuration of the fill tube deflector, but allowed us to confirm that no water was present, and therefore no product quality issues.“ Anthony Cornish, Viva Energy Facilities Maintenance Contract Lead.
