Located away from operation area at the north west of VIA the new fuel storage will be approximately 37,000m2, which is roughly 3 times the size of the current fuel farm. With this development the fuel farm will host 45 million litres of Jet A1 fuel, 1 million litres of Diesel and 0.1 million litres of petrol. Three storage tanks will be installed in the fuel farm as part of this project. Furthermore, in terms of fuel demand and storage limits, an additional two fuel tanks can be established.
A fuel hydrant with a length of 8.4 kilometers has been installed to fuel aircrafts. Fuel trucks will no longer be required to fuel aircraft after the system is implemented, improving safety and reducing service time for airlines.
The new fuel farm is expected to be operational by the first quater of 2023.
