Based in Aalborg, Denmark the company is a leading solutions provider to the downstream fuel logistics market in Europe, manufacturing fuel tankers and SafeCon® fuel delivery control systems.

HMK Bilcon’s SafeCon® III is the next generation of IT control systems for fuel tankers with a modern touch screen with all the latest features. New and smarter features are constantly being developed for SafeCon® III and 24-hour support is now available. Besides managing valves, pump and other components, SafeCon® III also controls the meter system to provide easier and fast loading and delivery with an improved ability to see compartment status along with many other new features. SafeCon® III is the only fuel delivery control system on the market that minimizes idling via electronic controls and it is therefore the world's greenest fuel tanker control system. It is also the safest control system, as product mixing is prevented through a series of built-in alarms.

Touchstar’s flagship mobile application is FuelStar, which can be fully integrated with HMK Bilcon’s systems. FuelStar is often deployed on the in-house manufactured, ATEX-rated Android tablet, the TS3200.

A recent meeting between Peter Jensby, CEO of HMK Bilcon and Mark Hardy, CEO of TouchStar plc. led to both organisations committing to a strategic partnership. HMK Bilcon has a large market share in Scandinavia and TouchStar has similar in the UK Ireland and beyond. Both organisations come from two different disciplines, but high levels of integration between TouchStar’s OBTC devices and ePOD Application FuelStar, with HMK Bilcon’s SafeCon® III control system meant both Peter and Mark identified a great opportunity for collaboration within a number of geographical target markets.

The companies have already supplied a fully integrated solution to DCC Energi. The DCC business comprises sales of more than 200 million litres of heating oil and transport fuels to domestic and small commercial and industrial customers throughout Denmark. The fuel distribution system for DCC Energi in Denmark is fundamental in maintaining their high levels of customer service and to ensure highly flexible and cost-effective operation.
