Oil marketer, OLA Energy Kenya has launched a clinic to serve its customers at their locations in an effort to offer a convenient solution to equipment diagnosis.
Dubbed “O’Lab Clinic”, the mobile clinic is set to modernize vehicle testing by conducting rapid tests conveniently at a customer’s location, give a snapshot of the condition of their vehicle equipment, and serve both industrial and automotive customers.
It will help in condition monitoring and diagnostics, which includes a battery tester to check battery health, an emissions tester to check the health of the vehicle exhaust systems, an engine diagnostics tester to check for errors within the engine, and an infrared thermographic imager to give a spectrum of temperature within operating equipment. It has an oil filtration unit to test for oil viscosity and clean oil that may have dirt. The lab also has a vibration meter, a stroboscope, and a vehicle electronic diagnostics kit.
During the launch held at the oil marketer’s head office in Muthaiga, vehicle diagnosis and testing, battery and emissions testing were carried out for the company’s staff vehicles. This was done to ensure their safety and educate them on best practices in lubrication. The launch was also held for the staff to appreciate the lab’s benefits and to enlist them as O’Lab brand ambassadors among customers.
“We provide services and products that keep our customers going. The launch of this O’Lab Clinic is one such product that was developed to give a proactive approach to our client’s needs. We can now take tests on-site, do condition monitoring of equipment, and offer technical support to inspect equipment and give recommendations,” said the OLA Energy Kenya general manager, Dr Yousef Elhemalli.
O’Lab is a specialized tool that was added to OLA Energy Kenya to enhance Field Engineering Services and provide value-added services to its current and prospective customers. The lab enables rapid tests to be carried out as opposed to previously when the OLA Energy team had to take samples to a stationary laboratory in Mombasa and wait for days to receive results. O’Lab is part of OLA Energy Kenya’s aftersales Technical Support Services that are offered free of charge to customers.
