EarthSearch for Ghana fuel delivery monitoring

No more fiddling with fuel delivery thanks to location-based spicket padlock.

Ghanaian-based MultiPlant has delivered an anti-fraud solution for oil trucks leveraging technology from EarthSearch. The system monitors fuel deliveries by recording tap opening and closing times, fuel levels and the GPS location of the tanker. Certified delivery information can then be submitted for payment.

EarthSearch technology includes the LogiBoxx wireless radio and RFSeal, used to secure the tanker’s spicket (tap) while travelling. The GPS system is pre-programmed with delivery destinations and , when on location, communicates with the RFSeal lock to time deliveries. Status can be visualized in Google maps and an alert generated if an anomaly is recognized.

Earlier this year, MultiPlant’s own ‘Nsoroma,’ solution for fleet management won a 2011 World Summit Award. Nsoroma automated fleet reporting and issues SMS alerts on driver-tampering, route deviation and emergency situations. MultiPlant CEO Harry Baksmaty said, ‘Our services allow clients the flexibility to choose from a variety of mapping servers such as Google Maps, Bing, OpenStreet Maps and Google Earth, freeing clients from the headache of managing their own software.’ More from
