Prague, Czech Republic – OPW Fueling Components EMEA, a global business unit of OPW Fueling Components Group, a Dover Company (NYSE: DOV), is pleased to announce the establishment of a Technical University dedicated to its AVANCE by OPW family of fueling nozzles, breakaways and hoses. The AVANCE Technical University has been developed to offer AVANCE training seminars, which have been designed to ensure AVANCE service technicians are more effective through hands-on training.

November 20-21 and 22-23

The AVANCE technical University also provide customers in the EMEA region with localized support through online instruction via repair videos, troubleshooting topics, service and maintenance manuals.

To enroll now for an upcoming AVANCE Technical University training seminar, which has limited seating, please email marketing@opw-fce.com. On-site training seminars may also be conducted at customer facilities, if desired.

“Prior to its launch, the AVANCE was tested thoroughly and completed, on average, more than 1.5 million shutoff cycles before maintenance was needed,” explained Carman Kobza, Managing Director of OPW EMEA. “However, as with any OPW product, the company developed this Technical University to provide complete technical support, which is a key component in the continued success of our channel partners.”

OPW’s AVANCE next-generation nozzle and system solution, which was introduced to the EMEA market in April 2012, is the direct result of extensive research. AVANCE’s technical innovations will increase profitability, decrease service and maintenance costs for operators, and protect customers and the environment during the filling process. The AVANCE product line is available as a conventional nozzle, a vapor-recovery nozzle, and as a fully certified and complete system solution with AVANCE hose and AVANCE swivel breakaways. The multi-plane AVANCE swivel breakaway is designed to rotate 360 degrees around its axis and 70 degrees from side to side, offering superior customer convenience and safety. All AVANCE components are fully compatible and retrofittable with the installed base in the field.
