Around one-third of the petrol and diesel used in Switzerland is handled by the Swiss river ports along the Rhine river. The fuel arrives in ships and cargo trains, is picked up by tankers, and ultimately delivered to filling stations around the country. The huge storage tanks make for an impressive scenery.
Right in the middle of a labyrinth of pipes is Andi Wyss. The project manager at Inrag AG is standing next to an Inrag dosing system and explains the device’s purpose ‘It adds the secret, fuel brand-specific formula – which upgrades the fuel with the performance boosters from the respective oil companies – to the fuel flowing from the storage tank into the tanker.’ The Inrag technology plays a key role when it comes to transforming fuel into branded fuel: The tanker arrives, the driver checks in using a card, and the truck’s tank is automatically filled with the right formula.
