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
If you’re heading to Bergen Airport (BGO/ ENBR) in Norway, then you’ll welcome the news that we’ve invested in new infrastructure to supply fuel more efficiently and with lower emissions.
Our investment has seen a significant upgrade to Dolvik terminal, which supplies Bergen - Norway’s second largest airport. The upgraded terminal now 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 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.”
The investment also highlights our commitment to support the industry in meeting IATA’s ambitious carbon reduction targets. These include a 1.5% average annual improvement in fuel efficiency from 2009 to 2020, carbon neutral growth from 2020 and a 50% absolute reduction in carbon emissions by 2050 compared to 2005. As part of our low carbon solutions offer, we’ve been supplying Bergen Airport with BP Biojet since August 2017 and will continue to work closely with Avinor to develop and deliver sustainable fuel at the airport.
