|EIP came into being in 1997 through the coming together of EFT and IEE.71, whose activities are complementary.|
EFT, created in 1979 is an engineering company specialised in petroleum depot automation systems.
EFT uses its intrinsically safe electronic equipment expertise in other areas:
hazardous area marine loading arms for FMC, oil product loading bays, industrial centrifuge control systems for Guinard Centrifugation.
EFT is actively involved in the establishment of standards relating to on board electronic metering systems for petroleum product delivery trucks.
| IEE.71 was specialised in fabrication, installation,
and maintenance of oil depot automation systems.
IEE.71 also carried out commissioning, start up and operator training for the installations.
