Air BP invests in Norwegian upgrade

Comment on this article

Air BP has invested in upgraded infrastructure at Dolvik terminal in Norway to provide a more efficient, lower carbon fuel supply.

Improvements at the BP-owned terminal include an upgraded pipeline and new fuel tanks with the capacity to store 8m litres of Jet-A1 fuel. This will offer greater security of supply to help meet the increasing demand for fuel at Norway’s second largest airport, Bergen. The terminal was inaugurated yesterday by Aslak Sverdrup, Airport Director, Avinor, during a special ceremony.

The project involved rebuilding three fuel tanks, building a new jetty, the integration of two fuel systems to optimise storage, improvements to on-site safety mechanisms and control system enhancements. Not only does the new facility deliver a more efficient supply route and greater supply security but it will also reduce carbon emissions. It is anticipated that delivering fuel direct by pipeline, as opposed to road, will save around 300 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
