Air BP invests in upgraded terminal to deliver biofuel


In Norway, Air BP invested in upgrades to its fuel infrastructure at Dolvik terminal, which has the capacity to store eight million liters of aviation fuel and will deliver Jet A-1 fuel via pipeline to Norway’s second largest airport, Bergen. As part of its low carbon solutions offer, Air BP has been supplying Bergen airport with BP Biojet since August 2017.

The project involved rebuilding three fuel tanks, building a new jetty, the integration of two fuel systems to optimize 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 via road, will save around 300 tons of carbon emissions annually.
