AUSTIN, TEXAS – July 28, 2020 – Dover Fueling Solutions (“DFS”), a part of Dover Corporation and a leading global provider of advanced customer-focused technologies, services and solutions in the fuel and convenience retail industries, is delighted to announce its new agreement with Bilpa S.A. for the provision of its Fairbanks wetstock management services to the Uruguay and Paraguay markets.
Bilpa is based in Montevideo and is a longstanding DFS distributor of Wayne products, as well as those of ProGauge and Dover sister company OPW predominantly selling fuel dispensers and nozzles, swivels and hoses etc. throughout the region. Now, with the addition of the Fairbanks fuel monitoring service, Bilpa can increase its offering to the circa 500 strong fuel stations in Uruguay, starting with a significant historical data analysis pilot for a leading oil company. The new service will assist site owners to comply with the recently introduced underground storage tank control measures, with both the service itself and the accompanying reporting seen as a positive contribution towards conformity.
Bilpa is a renowned company in the industry, not only selling refuelling equipment, but also providing maintenance, construction, engineering projects and consultancy services, and employs approximately 130 staff.
Walter Dura, President of Bilpa, said: “We are honoured to be able to add the Fairbanks expert monitoring service to our offering. With the introduction of the new regulations surrounding SIR leak detection, the service will be an extremely sought-affer addition from our customer base. We look forward to working with DFS for years to come.”
Andy Sullivan, General Manager and Senior Director Wetstock, DFS, commented: “We are extremely excited to partner with Bilpa and to bring our real-time wetstock management services to the South American continent for the first time. As well as having the peace of mind that even the smallest instances of fuel loss won’t go unnoticed, fuel station operators will also be able to benefit from the full depth of our solutions, which help them to understand trends, lower operational costs, improve margins and stay compliant. As a licensee of the Fairbanks wetstock management platform, Bilpa will be able to leverage the team’s many decades of experience in providing wetstock software and services, whilst crucially maintaining the local presence and market understanding that will ensure that customers get the most compelling value possible from the service. We’re confident that fuel station operators will quickly see the benefits and come to rely on Bilpa’s monitoring services as a key component of running their businesses.”
