Taylor’s Atlas Oil Co. is at the Data Center World 2019 trade show this week (March 19-22) in Phoenix, Ariz., previewing its prototype fuel automation station that is designed to help data centers and other mission-critical organizations continue operating during unexpected power outages.
With more customers experiencing wide-spread power outages, Atlas says its fuel automation station prototype – currently being utilized in Atlas’ Frac division – features “unique automated fuel delivery and management technology that distributes consistent, high-quality fuel supply to up to 28 individual tanks at one time.”
“Mission-critical businesses across the nation have been hit with immense emergency fueling challenges this past year,” says Jayme Oyen, director of emergency services at Atlas Oil. “According to Eaton’s 2018 Blackout Tracker annual report, 18 percent of companies experienced a loss of more than $100,000 as a result of their worst outage.
“This upgraded FAS unit is perfect for data centers and other mission-critical customers looking for an efficient, safe, and tech-savvy solution for fueling generators and vehicles during power outages.”
As part of its ongoing StormProof campaign, Atlas offers fuel assurance plans that guarantee fuel to contracted customers in the wake of a power outage, natural disaster, or other unplanned emergency. The plans are customizable with an always-guaranteed priority response time, emergency fuel allocation, and on-demand fleet, according to Atlas.
Recognizing that an effective business continuity plan includes tank upkeep and fuel quality control, Atlas also has partnered with Diesel Fuel Doctor to provide Gen360 plans. Tailored to each customer, Gen360 plans offer a wide-variety of tank and maintenance solutions including fuel polishing, water removal, top-tier diesel additives, and annual fuel testing.
