Tanker Metering & Ship Refuelling Equipment for CNC Petroleum

Back in December 2014 Alpeco began to work with CNC Petroleum to install our MF800 tank and electronic metering equipment to three new tankers.

Established in 2008, CNC is aiming to become the largest and most professional distributor in Singapore and Malaysia.  As well as delivering fuel across Singapore, the new tankers were used to demonstrate Alpeco’s metering equipment to other oil companies seeking to enhance their own fleet’s efficiency and safety, with CNC operating as Alpeco’s regional distributor.

Over the past 12 months our work with CNC Petroleum has developed much further.  With all three trucks performing well, they are keen to upgrade to Alpeco’s latest Truck III metering system to benefit form its load inventory and anti-crossover feature.  Having recently merged with NSL Oilchem Trading, the company now has a fleet of over 20 vehicles, all of which will require upgrading from mechanical registration to Truck III in the not too distant future.

CNC have also recently won new contracts for handling ship refuelling and have commissioned Alpeco to provide two high speed dispensing units, each providing two line metered delivery systems with flow rates up to 1000lpm with electronic registers linked to EA Projects fuel management system and a truck loading skid.

Truck III CHECKMATE & ACTI-Clear selected for Thomas Hardie Demo Fuel Tanker

coboIn a joint initiative with specialist bulk discharge and tanker builder HDE, Volvo dealer Thomas Hardie Commercials has put a new FE 6×2 rearsteer fuel tanker demonstrator on the road, installed with Alpeco’s new Truck III CHECKMATE fuel discharge equipment and ACTI-Clear feature, which reduces the costly risk of fuel contamination.  This function facilitates automatic closure of the delivery manifold at a predetermined point before the end of a pre-set delivery. This leaves the manifold and associated pre-meter pipe work empty of product after every delivery

The tanker was first exhibited at FPS Expo in Liverpool in April 2016 and is now being trialled by fuel companies around the country.  



Truck III and i-Meter Upgrade


Truck III and i-MeterDreamtec Software have been working in association with Alpeco to upgrade their i-Meter vehicle tracking system so that it can now capture the inventory information as well as delivery data meaning all on board stock can  be monitored from the office.  It can also show the type of oil and quantity in each of the compartments on a LIVE real time web based dashboard.

This new development is now in use by Glen Fuels, which has the new Alpeco TE550 Truck III meter fuel delivery system and i-Meter system installed.  The truck was built by Road Tankers Armagh and is making deliveries around Gorey, Co. Wexford.
