Gazprom Neft reveals concept of robotic fuel station

Gazprom Neft has presented the concept of a robotic system for loading petroleum products into a fuel tanker truck at the Sheremetyevo international airport. The fuel filling process was automated with the help of a robot manipulator and implemented for the first time in Russia without the participation of personnel.

The robot manipulator is currently being tested for further implementation at airport fuel stations. Gazpromneft-Aero and the Digital Innovations Center of Gazprom Neft in cooperation with the Central Research Institute of Robotics and Technical Cybernetics developed this pilot project under an agreement signed at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2018.

The introduction of robotic technologies is one of the stages in the implementation of automated process control at the modern Gazprom Neft fuel station. The technologies that form the basis of robotic manipulators provide maximum efficiency and safety.

The next step in the implementation of the project will be the integration of a robotic system into the overall automated process control system of the Gazpromneft-Aero fuel station. The creation of a digital fuel station is part of an extensive roadmap of projects within the digital transformation of Gazprom Neft’s business.
