Dover Fueling Solutions (‘DFS’), a part of Dover Corporation that delivers advanced fuel dispensing equipment, electronic systems and payment, fleet systems, automatic tank gauging, and wetstock management, is pleased to announce that it has recently taken delivery of a THOR UVC® disinfecting robot in a bid to help prevent and control the spread of coronavirus infection at its facility in Dundee. The UVC device is currently undergoing comprehensive trials to establish the best possible practice to be adopted for site disinfection and sanitisation.
The safety, health and wellbeing of its employees is of paramount importance to DFS. When COVID-19 first forced the UK into lockdown, the Scottish government classified DFS Dundee as an essential business and therefore required the facility to reopen and provide support to other essential services and key workers. Since then, DFS has been working hard to implement the strictest health and safety procedures to protect its people. Enhanced safety protocols have been in place since production staff returned to work on 31 March, 2020. At the moment DFS are trialling the device and fine-tuning their internal processes and are on-track to roll out the facility-wide UVC disinfection shortly.
