• Tebodin wins design of 131 service stations
  • Upgrades will convert facilities into ‘smart service stations’
  • Fuel dispensers will include vapur recovery systems

Tebodin has been awarded a deal to design a project to convert UAE petrol stations into ‘smart service stations’ and implement vapour recovery systems, according to a source familiar with the project.

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) Distribution plans to upgrade 131 service stations in the UAE to allow self-service of fuel by a number plate recgonition system. 

Through the system, fuel will be automatically dispensed and charged to the user’s account. This will integrate technologies such as radio frequency identification-based authorisation and payment, near-field communication readiness, as well as mobile and e-commerce platforms.

The fuel dispensers will be replaced to include vapour recovery systems.

Tebodin, a company of Germany-headquartered international engineering and services group Bilfinger, has been awarded several design contracts in the UAE this year.
