Thorbjorn Larsson general manager Air BP Nordics and Aslak Sverdrup airport director Avinor mark the opening of Air BP's newly upgraded fuel terminal at Dolvik Norway.
We feel it is important to invest in upgrades that will ensure more efficient, lower carbon fuel supplies for customers. And, that’s exactly what we’ve done at Dolvik terminal in Norway.
The newly upgraded terminal has the capacity to store an impressive eight million litres of aviation fuel and will enable the delivery of Jet A-1 via pipeline to Norway’s second largest airport, Bergen. It is anticipated that delivering fuel by pipeline, as opposed to via road, will save around 300 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
What did the terminal upgrade involve? It included the rebuilding of three fuel tanks, a new jetty, the integration of two fuel systems to optimise storage, improvements to on-site safety mechanisms and control system enhancements.
Complementing us on the new fuel terminal, Aslak Sverdrup, airport director, Avinor said: “Air BP’s modern and efficient fuel terminal will secure timely and predictable fuel deliveries to the airlines and will contribute to the further development of the airport.” In reference to our commitment to supply Bergen Airport with BP Biojet, which we have been doing since August 2017, Sverdrup added: “Avinor will also continue to work closely with Air BP to develop and make sustainable biofuel available at the airport.”
