REMOTE MONITORING IF DIESEL GENERATORS FOR MOBILE BASE STATIONS

In an ambitious project for implementing the real-time remote monitoring system of mobile base stations in East Africa, Galooli turned to Omnicomm to integrate their LLS fuel-level sensors to monitor fuel consumption of diesel generators powering the base stations.

Galooli Telecom recommends OMNICOMM LLS fuel-level sensors as highly accurate.

Galooli Group is a leading innovator of smart end-to-end solutions for remote asset performance management. Galooli’s IoT-based solutions use cutting-edge technology to convert operational inefficiencies into financial savings.

THE CHALLENGE

THE SOLUTION

Diesel consumption is one of the major operational costs for telecom tower owners. At the same time the fuel fraud at remote facilities is a serious issue.

While implementing a real-time remote monitoring system of mobile base stations in East Africa, Galooli decided to include a robust and highly accurate fuel measurement solution into their system: to precisely monitor the fuel consumption of diesel generators powering mobile base stations and eliminate fuel fraud.

After integration of OMNICOMM fuel-level sensors to monitor fuel levels in more than 2.000 diesel generators powering mobile base stations in Uganda, Galooli managed to reduce fuel cost by 30-40%. Overall savings amounted to over 5 million USD annually.

THE RESULT

  • Fuel consumption of diesel generators powering remote base stations in Uganda was reduced by 34% just in two years after implementation.
  • The company was able to save their customers more than $5 m annually.
  • Omnicomm solution helped to identify persons responsible for fuel fraud at remote facilities.
