Rosneft Aero introduces digital Into-Plane fuel accounting technology
Moscow. Rosneft Aero is adopting digital jet fuel accounting for into-wing refuelling as part of the Rosneft-2022 Strategy. The company has renewed airfield equipment fleet of Pulkovo International Airport by purchasing TZA-45 refuellers, which are equipped with the latest integrated automated fuel mass measurement system. In 2019, Rosneft Aero sold 52,000 tons of jet fuel in Pulkovo, becoming one of the largest fuel suppliers.
Business processes digitization and technological development in all areas of the Company’s activities is an important element of the Rosneft-2022 Strategy, primarily due to the accelerated replication of digital solutions.
The new equipment with an automatic accounting system is able to register the volume, weight, temperature, and density of fuel supplied, generate and send reports to print, reducing the time required to complete primary documentation when refuelling an aircraft by 60%. The system improves the accuracy of mass measurements during fuel shipment to aircraft and eliminates the human factor.
In the short term, Rosneft Aero plans to continue updating the fleet for refuelling aircraft in other regions of its presence.
