Airfield Automation technology enhances our airport fuelling operations

We've had interest from across the globe since unveiling our Airfield Automation technology back in May. We continue to roll this innovative solution out across our network and expect the technology to be fully operational at around 350 locations by 2020.

Our new cloud-based platform has been designed to enhance safety, reliability and compliance in airport fuelling operations. It’s also the first commercially deployed system in the world to provide an engineering barrier which actively helps prevent misfuelling. 

How does it work? The digital platform consolidates the data related to airport fuelling operations and works via an app on a handheld device in the fuelling vehicles. 

Named ‘safe2go’, the app captures fuel volume readings and provides fuel grade checks. It then electronically captures the customer’s details which are confirmed with an electronic signature from the pilot or airline.

With misfuelling one of the biggest risks faced by our industry, we’re proud to be playing our part in ensuring the fuelling process at airports is fast, efficient and safe.
