GreatGas 24/7 Santry – Ireland’s first unmanned Unleaded filling station

MDP_Michael Donnelly Studios_Tokheim & Great Gas_ Automated FillFuel supplier GreatGas has agreed a €250,000 deal  with Tokheim, an international provider of fuel retailing systems, to  open three new unmanned service stations in the next 12 months.

GreatGas  opened Ireland’s only unmanned service station on the Old Airport Road  in the Dublin suburb of Santry two years ago. Ray O’Sullivan, managing  director of GreatGas, said the company planned to partner with forecourt  owners around Ireland to open more unmanned stations in the coming  months.

‘‘We are now well advanced with plans to roll out three  more outlets around the country in the coming year and we are also open  to approaches from other existing forecourt owners who are interested in  partnering with us on this new business model,” said O’Sullivan.

Tokheim  has about 20,000 unmanned ‘pay@pump’ terminals in place in Europe. Paul  Farren, general manager of Tokheim Ireland, said the number of service  stations in operation here had dropped by 10 per cent year-on-year for  the last decade.

‘‘There are now just over 1,200 service stations  in the Republic and many are on the verge of closure,” Farren said.  ‘‘But this new ‘pay-at-the-pump’ business model has given them renewed  hope for the future of their business. In addition, many who have  already closed are also considering re-opening on this basis. This  revolutionary concept could save their business.”
