Air BP's airfield automation operates in São Paulo

Air BP, the international aviation fuel products and service supplier has announced it completed the roll out of its Airfield Automation digital technology across São Paulo state, Brazil, the company said.

Air BP´s cloud-based platform is designed to prevent misfuelling by enhancing safety, reliability and compliance in airport fuelling operations, while providing data in real time to airline customers. It is the first commercially deployed system in the world to provide an engineering barrier to actively help prevent misfuelling.

The platform consolidates the data related to airport fuelling operations and works via an app on a handheld device in the fuelling vehicles. The ´safe2go´ app captures fuel volume readings and provides fuel grade checks to add an additional misfuelling barrier. It then electronically captures customer details which are confirmed with an electronic signature from the pilot or airline representative. By using this automated, end-to-end, paperless system, accuracy is enhanced and any potential mis keying errors minimized.

In addition to the enhanced safety barriers, aircraft operators will also benefit from faster, more comprehensive and more accurate fuelling and delivery data. The cloud-based technology will enable Air BP to offer increasingly integrated information to customers, such as delivery records and precise delivery timings.
