The Vermont Fuel Dealers Association and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources approved Slick Energy’s proprietary Tank Tracker software application to perform virtual tank inspections, Slick Energy says.
As a contactless data collection application, Tank Tracker addresses concerns about the health and well-being of tank owners and inspectors during the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the overall condition of above-ground tanks, Slick Energy says.
Following prompts, customers or inspectors upload tank photos and videos, answer questions, and relay information directly through their smartphones. Slick Energy’s customized solution for Vermont fuel dealers results in digital completion of a state-mandated tank system inspection form, the vendor says. The cloud-based software is compliant with the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources’ AST Inspection Checklist, the vendor says. There are more than 111,000 oil tanks in Vermont, according to the vendor, which adds that it is offering “special pricing” to dealers in the state through the end of December.
“The Slick Energy Tank Tracker software can make compliance with Vermont’s tank regulations easier, safer and more efficient,” VFDA Executive Director Matt Cota says in a news release issued by Slick Energy. “The state of Vermont has approved the use of virtual tank inspections and the Slick Energy software is one of the most comprehensive ways to ensure fuel oil is delivered safely and stored securely.”
