The fuel industry faces numerous challenges, including fluctuating prices, regulatory compliance, and the need for operational efficiency. At MechTronic we recognise the importance of technological advancements in addressing these challenges and after listening to our customers, we sought to provide a solution that could streamline processes, increase accuracy, and enhance overall productivity – OptiMate was the solution.

At MechTronic we are delighted that since its launch in 2016, OptiMate is now operating on over 700 trucks across the UK and Ireland and we have a further 300 confirmed orders, scheduled for delivery over the next 18 months.

Roadmap of OptiMate successes, with over 700 now in operation across the UK&I.

How does OptiMate benefit our customers? 

  • Increased reliability: OptiMate is unique in its design. An electronic metering system that is driven by solid-state technology to provide hose/bulk and gravity metering through the same accurate turbine meter – regardless of the delivery method, every litre of fuel is metered and accounted for and free from contamination
  • Enhanced efficiency and productivity: OptiMate incorporates advanced automation features such as automatic line and compartment change. This functionality streamlines processes, ensuring that drivers remain at the point of delivery throughout, and as the line change is an automatic calculation, drivers and fuel operatives can be assured that line changes are clean and any potential for human error is minimised. 
  • Seamless integration: OptiMate is futureproof and designed with the fuel operative in mind. It seamlessly integrates with all road tanker infrastructure.
