Australia-based analytics and field technologies company Leighton O’Brien has expanded its global fuel cleaning operations into Ireland following an agreement with retail petroleum solutions provider, TSG Ireland.

TSG’s fully trained and safety certified technicians will deliver Leighton O’Brien’s patented tank cleaning and fuel restoration technology, supported by expert fuel data analysis and reporting by highly qualified analysts.

Paul Farren, general manager of TSG Ireland, said: “We’ve been at the forefront of developing innovative solutions for oil companies for many years and this partnership with Leighton O’Brien enhances our solutions portfolio.

“Fuel quality is a key issue that fuel retail operators are continually trying to manage. With the introduction of ethanol fuel, biofuels and modern additives, simply filtering the fuel is no longer enough.

“With this technology our customers can address fuel quality and water intrusion issues, malfunctioning dispensers, blocked filters, bacterial growth, diesel bugs and phase separation.

“Leighton O’Brien’s patented fuel cleaning system doesn’t require manned entry, providing a safer, faster, more effective cleaning process with the least fuel loss.”

Leighton O’Brien head of international distributors Jason Park said: “This is another key milestone for Leighton O’Brien in the growth of our fuel cleaning business. Fuel quality is a global industry issue. We’re pleased to partner with TSG Ireland to resolve product quality issues for their customers backed by a very knowledgeable and results-focused management team.”

TSG Ireland is part of the wider Tokheim Services Group network, with its own head offices in Dublin. It offers services across the island of Ireland including Northern Ireland, and is also able to dispatch the new cleaning truck to mainland UK.

Farren said TSG Ireland was focused on capitalising on significant interest with major oil companies.
