Airport fuel infrastructure forms a vital part of the fuel supply chain. Jet fuel pipelines and bulk storage tanks require special operating and maintenance considerations. Jet fuels, specifically Jet A-1 and JP-8, are subject to tight quality requirements necessitating special equipment and engineering. While at most airports the fuel facility appears to be adequate, some airports are perceived to have insufficient or excessive facilities. In case of supply disruptions, insufficient capacity could result in non-availability of jet fuel. Moreover, licensees of aerodromes that have facilities for the storage of fuel are required to include, within the Aerodrome Manual, procedures to ensure that, throughout the processes of receiving, storing, managing, and distributing fuel, it is at all stages fit for use in aircraft.

Airport ACE comprehensive ''know-how'' ranging from the initial concept and feasibility stage of bulk storage facilities and adjacent pipeline systems to the front-end detailed engineering design, project management, engineering, procurement and construction, including QA/QC, Inspection and safety management implementation provides the Aerodrome Operator with the essential framework in accessing the right balance between storage capacity, operational reliability, quality assurance /quality control and cost.

Our consulting services include, while not limited to the following:

  • Planning and design, construction, commissioning, final acceptance and operational handover of existing and new aviation fuel storage installations and pipeline network, hydrant distribution systems and aircraft refueling equipment
  • Airport fuel storage capacity feasibility studies, according to IATA Guidance on Airport Fuel Storage Capacity Handbook
  • Airport Fuel Storage and Distribution Pipeline Network QA/QC, Inspection and safety management, HAZOP HAZID and SIL reviews, Environmental impact assessments, Value engineering, Authority liaison
