Upgraded AdBlue® Dispensers for United Kingdom Independent Fuel Retailer

Global Star™ V Dispenser with Blue1 Compact Tank, Configured for AdBlue and Installed at MRH’s Thetford West Site.

Thetford, NORFOLK, UK (March 24, 2011) — Dresser Wayne (, a global innovator of fuel dispensers and technologies, has been working with Blue 1, a principal supplier of AdBlue storage solutions, on a new AdBlue dispensing system. Together they will supply Air1®, the leading U.K. supplier of the emissions-reducing AdBlue operating fluid, to equip selected independent stations with new equipment based on the Dresser Wayne Global Star V AdBlue Dispenser. The Global Star dispenser with Blue 1 compact tank, a complete assembly that integrates pump and tank in one unit, is being installed at the BP Thetford West site operated by MRH (GB) Limited, a U.K.-based fuel distribution and retail company.

“The Global Star V AdBlue dispensing solution, and the partnership behind it, reflects our commitment to meet the growing demand for alternative fuel types,” says Dresser Wayne Sales Manager Soren Powell-Holse. “We are well known for our traditional fuel dispenser installations, and now we are playing a leading role in supporting requirements for AdBlue. We have seen significant interest in our new Global Star V AdBlue dispenser, and we believe that Dresser Wayne’s industry-recognized quality and reliability will cause more and more forward-thinking dealers to choose Dresser Wayne for their alternative fueling needs.”

With the Global Star dispenser and Blue 1 compact-tank solution, Dresser Wayne adds to its extensive range of dispensing solutions available to U.K. retailers, which also include traditional standalone dispensers and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) dispenser configurations, with or without pay-at-pump technology. The Global Star dispenser and Blue 1 compact tank, which will be co-branded Air1 and BP at the new MRH Thetford West installation, is based on the AdBlue configuration of Dresser Wayne’s innovative Global Star V series of dispensers for eco-fueling. AdBlue is a non-toxic emission fluid that is designed to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the exhaust gas systems of heavy-duty vehicles. The AdBlue product for use with the new   installation is supplied by Air1, which is a part of the Norwegian chemical company  Yara International ASA, the world’s largest AdBlue producer.
