International aviation fuel products and service supplier, Air BP has improved access to, and distribution of, its UL91 product in Norway by installing a self-serve automat facility at Kjeller Airport, (ENKJ). This makes Kjeller the first airport in Scandinavia to offer three Air BP fuel grades; UL91, which is certified according to ASTM D7547, Avgas 100LL and JetA1. The facility was inaugurated by Air BP CEO, David Gilmour and Air BP customer, Helge Storflor of Nedre Romerike Flying Club, on April 20th.
Demonstrating its commitment to safety, Air BP has improved the self-serve facilities at Kjeller making them easier, safer and more efficient to use. For customers using Air BP’s Sterling Card the automat will recognise each individual Sterling Card thereby activating delivery of the correct fuel grade and reducing the risk of incorrect fuelling.
The installation of the UL91 automat is the first step towards the development of a network of Air BP UL91 automats across Scandinavia, which will be rolled out in 2016.
Once in place Air BP anticipates that the addition of the third fuel grade, and the convenience afforded by its UL91 Sterling Card, will go some way to addressing the region’s high demand for, and interest in, using unleaded avgas. It also supports Air BP’s commitment to help the aviation industry achieve a lower carbon future.
As Norway’s largest general aviation airport, Kjeller Airport serves Oslo just nine nautical miles away and was the logical choice for Air BP’s first installation of the UL91 self-serve automat in Scandinavia. Additional locations in Denmark, Sweden and Norway are also scheduled to receive UL91 facilities.
