Dead River Benefits from Upgrading to OPW Fuel Management Systems’ SiteSentinal® iSite™ Automatic Tank-Gauging System

By OPW | Aug 31, 2011

A century after being founded, Dead River Company, Portland, Maine, has become one of the largest distributors of petroleum products to retail and commercial customers in northern New England – particularly throughout the states of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Of course, this success didn’t happen by accident, and didn’t come overnight. It was the result of sensing a shift in existing market dynamics, identifying new opportunities, and then having the fortitude and wherewithal to move the company in new directions.

As part of this wherewithal, Dead River aggressively adopts new technologies to improve operations. For instance, Dead River recently upgraded its bulk facility to utilize the SiteSentinel® iSite™ Automatic Tank-Gauging System from OPW Fuel Management Systems. By upgrading to the latest in tank-monitoring technology, Dead River eliminated the man-hour intensive task of manually monitoring tanks, while improving cost-efficiencies.

OPW-FMS Tank Gauging Systems

The SiteSentinel® iSite™ tank-gauging system provides bulk plant operators with improved accuracy and versatility. The system is built on Windows® technology that provides the horsepower that site operators need to ensure that sites are being managed as efficiently and effectively as possible. The OPW SiteSentinel® iSite™ tank-gauging system was developed to offer easy, low-cost installation; easy-to-manage user interfaces; highly accurate and precise tank-monitoring peripherals; easy reconciliation of inventories and deliveries; a variety of probe and sensor options; tracking of regulatory-compliance reporting; an easy-to-read LCD touch-screen with an icon-based menu structure; and the latest in communications technology that allows access to the system from anywhere in the world.
