FMSi Awarded Contract to Provide Products and Services Based on MiX Telematics Technology
MUSCAT, Oman - Thursday, January 27th 2011 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FMSi, an authorised MiX Telematicspartner in the Middle East, has been awarded a tender with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO). This four year project focuses on driver safety, scoring and monitoring in order to significantly reduce road accidents and fatalities.
PDO is the premier hydrocarbon exploration and production company in the Sultanate of Oman. It accounts for more than 70% of the country's crude-oil production and nearly all of its natural-gas supply. PDO finds oil fields and develops them into productive assets by drilling wells and constructing and operating various hydrocarbon treatment and transport facilities. The crude oil that is produced from the fields is not sold by PDO, but rather delivered to a storage facility at Mina al Fahal, where it is loaded onto sea-going tankers at the discretion of their shareholders.
FMSi offers a wide range of solutions, extending from driver and vehicle performance management to tracking, two-way messaging and navigation. This is made easy using the MiX Telematics’ technology and service platforms.
MiX Telematics provides integrated driver safety solutionsto businesses that embrace a culture of ensuring employee and community safety and maintain the highest QHSE standards. These solutions report on vehicle data which allows customers to monitor and improve driver behaviour.
Raoul Restucci, Managing Director, PDO, reports, “I am pleased to report that as the Managing Director of PDO, I am the first employee to have my vehicle installed with this technology. I am now driving knowing that my driver behaviour is being monitored with my IVMS (in-vehicle monitoring system), which will be received and evaluated by an independent assessor.”
