St1 Offers Green Fueling Experience With Dresser Wayne Global Ovation iX™ Dispensers At Wind And Solar-Powered Sites
MALMÖ, SWEDEN (July 15, 2009) – Dresser Wayne, a global innovator of fuel dispensers and technologies, helps Finnish energy company St1 (www.St1.eu) to bring new alternative fuels to market. St1 leverages the Global Ovation® iX™ dispenser’s alternative fuel compatibility and state-of-the-art technology, including stage 2 vapour recovery and highly accurate XfloTM fuel meters. St1 distributes its new Refuel RE85 ethanol biofuel at five eco-conscious wind and solar-powered retail fuel sites in the greater Helsinki area and plans to soon expand to other locations in Finland. Two of the sites are partly wind and solar- powered, while three are already fully powered by on-site energy production and additional industrial wind power.
“We want to engage our customers with an informative experience – one that also offers the reward of doing what’s right for the environment. The Dresser Wayne Global Ovation iX dispenser’s user-centric design and leading technology help make this possible,” says Mikko Reinekari, St1 sales director.
The Global Ovation iX dispenser includes many elements that support the customer service objectives. The iX Technology Platform, with the iX Media 10.4 inch, in-dispenser color digital screen, enables St1 to offer educational videos about St1 Refuel RE85 ethanol and the company’s eco-friendly mission and philosophy during the fueling experience. In addition to environmental videos, the platform offers the option of promotional campaigns to drive sales of other St1 offerings and provides St1 with the revenue-generating option of selling merchandising space to other businesses. The Global Ovation iX dispenser features the Xflo™ fuel meter, available in an eco-fuel compatible design. The Xflo meter significantly reduces meter drift and shows benchmark accuracy through its advanced axial dual spindle technology. Plus, this accuracy helps ensure precisely-blended alternative fuels. “We applaud St1 and their efforts to offer sustaining, alternative fuels for motorists. We are pleased to be able to offer highly-accurate dispensing, vapour recovery and marketing solutions for this innovative retail fueling initiative,” says Damian Tracey, President EMEA.
St1 is employing Dresser Wayne’s Stage II Vapour Recovery System in the Global Ovation iX dispenser to reduce fueling emissions beyond current legal requirements.
