EarthSearch Communications has entered into a partnership agreement with Cynox, the Nigerian technology solutions provider, to monitor fuel levels in oil tankers.
In Nigeria, the cancellation of government oil subsidies has lead to increasing concerns over oil theft. EarthSearch’s integrated RFID and GPS product, together with level sensor technology will be used to monitor sudden drops in fuel level to detect the unauthorized siphoning of oil from the top of tanker.
Using RFID and GPS technology, the solution is able to communicate vital information regarding the distribution process so that the system can compare location information with manifest information, alerting officials if there is a theft in progress.
A pilot order has been shipped with a full deployment soon to follow.
