Case Study - B&B Transport, Bulk Transport, Qc, Canada
B&B Transport / Bess Tank Lines
B&B Transport, a company renowned for transit and road transport service excellence since 1976, is first and foremost focussed on the quality and reliability of its services. Working in many ways to ensure its on-road and off-road team is at the top of its game, the company constantly trains employees in cutting-edge techniques.
To increase its team’s safety, the company was looking to incorporate a tool to minimize works-at-height and tank monitoring. Furthermore, our solution reduces the risk of tank overflows by warning the operator when a critical level has been reached.
Our proposed solution
Eagleview Display with level sensor and audible alarm
- Reduce risk of tank overflows
- Reduce need for works-at-height
- Increase measuring precision
- Increase efficiency and safety
On average, drivers measure their tank level at least once a day.
- Increases measurement precision from 25mm to 2mm (1 in to 0,08 in)
- Can read the tank level on the display in real time from the ground, without having to climb on the tank
- Audible alarm sounds when the maximum tank level is reached
- Reduces 250 instances of works-at-height per tank per year
“Eagleview level monitoring systems reduce the risk of falls and overflows when we’re working with our tanks” - Gilles Hebert, Fleet Director
Following the project
B&B Transport confirmed Eagleview level monitoring systems are useful. The company has already equipped seven tanks with the system this year and is planning on adding Eagleview displays to all new tanks acquired in the coming years.
“It’s a tool that we use every day, it facilitates our team’s work and is more precise” - Eric Chartier, Driver and Trainer
A tank overflow could cost tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in cleaning and loss of productivity.

Tekinno Corporation is a Canada-based company offering control and monitoring devices for tanks and storage. Their Eagleview devices are mainly used in the demanding refueling industry. Since 2007, Tekinno products have been used by hundreds of FBOs across North America, from Texas right through to Alaska.
Our main goal is to deploy a smart environment aiming at avoiding or substantially reducing human errors and quality issues, increasing efficiency to process involving high risks, bringing a safer work environment and achieving reliable, continuous, and accurate monitoring.
