In Pune, Rishu Kapoor, the Regional Head of Shapoorji Pallonji, faced significant challenges with storing fuel in barrels. Manually pumping the fuel from the barrels led to frequent wastage.

“Before, we used to put diesel in barrels at our project sites, but it got mixed up easily. Moving diesel from one barrel to another was also slow and hard and frequently led to diesel spillage.”

This isn’t just a challenge for Shapoorji Pallonji—it’s a common problem in India’s busy industrial world. Efficient fuel logistics are crucial for success. Shapoorji Pallonji, a conglomerate with a diverse portfolio spanning construction, real estate, engineering, and energy sectors, faced significant hurdles with fuel management, impacting their productivity and efficiency.  

This is how Repos Fuel DATUM transformed Shapoorji Pallonji’s operations

The turning point came with the installation of Repos Fuel DATUM (RFD) at their sites. RFD, an advanced on-site fuel management system, revolutionized how Shapoorji Pallonji handled its fuel needs by tackling these issues directly.  

Transforming fuel management has never been easier 

With Fuel DATUM, these challenges became a thing of the past. Manually pumping 100 liters of diesel used to take up to 25 minutes, involving unreliable manual metering and monitoring. Now, dispensing the same amount takes just one to one and a half minutes, matching the speed of a regular petrol pump.  

Shapoorji Pallonji Achieved a 30x Faster Refueling and 8% Cost Reduction

The efficiency of the Fuel DATUM system has transformed operations at Shapoorji Pallonji, making refueling 30 times faster and optimizing asset and equipment use. Within the first three months of installation, the company saw a significant decrease of 7% to 8% in diesel costs.

Hundreds of businesses are now refueling 10,000 assets daily and improving their diesel operations with Repos Fuel DATUM. This has set a new standard in fuel management, providing an opportunity for other businesses to streamline their operations and reduce costs.
