Implico today announced that the latest OpenTAS 4.3 release has been operational at all German TanQuid terminals since early April. The current version of Implico’s universal administration, dispatch and automation system for the oil and gas industry was phased in gradually at TanQuid’s terminals during a project beginning in June 2009. The go-live at the Berlin terminal marks the successful conclusion of this project.

In 2008 TanQuid asked Implico to migrate the different OpenTAS systems from its predecessor companies to a central system and harmonise them. The harmonisation project was aimed at simplifying terminal management in Germany by ensuring that all sites deployed the 4.3 release of OpenTAS. Commencing with the storage facility at Salzgitter – now working with OpenTAS 4.3 since June 2009 – the rollout project then moved to the other sites. The productive start of the terminal in Berlin marks the conclusion of Implico’s consolidation project.
