Savings take off at Copthorne Parking with on-site fuel installation08 February 2016

Airport parking business Cophall Parking, near Gatwick, has full visibility of fuel stock and is making “significant savings” thanks to a new on-site fuelling system installed by Cameron Forecourt.

Cophall is located a few minutes from Gatwick and operates a fleet of minibuses to take customers to the airport. Until recently, it used public forecourts to refuel its vehicles.

Now, it has a 10,000-litre bunded fuel storage tank, with an integral cabinet with secure roller shutter door access, together with a 70 lpm Alpha Pump and Cameron’s Nova web-based fuel management system.

The Nova system gives live fuelling information, showing current fuel stock and reconciliation data. It also issues low stock warnings and notifications of any pumps that become disabled.

The money saved in moving to the Cameron Forecourt system has proved to be significant, says the company, and the savings will continue with the on-site installation, which complies fully with oil storage regulations.

Cophall says it has already noticed operational improvements, with more secure and efficient control of fuel stock levels and vehicle performance, as a result of the new clean and reliable fuel installation.

Andy Joyce, operations manager, says: “We couldn’t have imagined how big an impact this has had on our fuel management activities – the system has proved a godsend in allowing much more efficient management of our usage, with the associated cost benefits for our business.”
