GE Energy Business’ Wayne division announced today that its new Wayne Helix fuel dispenser will be the official fuel dispenser of BP’s “Fuelling the Future” Showcase in London during the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The station of the future will likely see increasing levels of bio components blended into conventional fossil fuels such as gas and diesel. As such, fuel suppliers will need dispensers that have been tested and certified to handle the rigor and demands of a wide range of biofuel blends and that also are safe, secure and easy to operate.
BP is the Official Oil and Gas Partner of the London 2012 Games and will be providing advanced fuels for many of the fleet of over 5,000 vehicles. BP selected Wayne’s Helix dispenser to highlight the advancements being made in the fueling stations of tomorrow.
Wayne has been a strategic global supplier to BP for nearly 30 years, providing fuel dispenser and payment solutions to BP affiliates in the U.S., Europe, Turkey and South Africa. This strong relationship stretches back to include the Amoco and Arco brands prior to, during and after BP acquired those companies.
BP challenged Wayne to design and build a fuel dispenser that could showcase BP’s future product aspirations from both a fueling and payment perspective.
Wayne developed the Helix fuel dispenser based on research and feedback from distributors, retailers, technicians and motorists from around the world. Helix dispensers are built on a global platform for worldwide design recognition and a consistent reliable fueling experience.
The Helix fuel dispenser family is designed to meet the standards of both ATEX and UL, global regulatory governing bodies for safety. The new dispenser also delivers Wayne’s payment-security platform, which is certified to comply with both PCI and EMV payment-security standards. Additional features such as enhanced displays with high-contrast, ergonomic design as well as expanded branding and signage areas visible from multiple angles answer the marketing needs of fueling stations.
Wayne will be unveiling Helix fuel dispensers at Expo Postos & Conveniência in Rio de Janeiro, Automechanika in Frankfurt and the NACS Show in Las Vegas in August, September and October respectively.
