06.04.16. Spain’s CLH Group is to operate and expand the existing fuel storage terminal at Dublin airport, in Ireland.
This follows a tender process organised by DAA (Dublin Airport Authority). The company will manage the storage facility under a concession scheme for 20 years and will renovate the infrastructure by expanding its capacity and building a new hydrant system.
During 2016-2018, the investment will exceed €40 million euros with the aim of commissioning new infrastructure in stages, for which completion is expected in three years.
The new facility will comprise three storage tanks of 5,000 cbm each, office and service buildings, parking area, pumping stations, into-plane fuelling unit loading areas and the most technologically-advanced safety systems.
The project also includes the building of a hydrant system at the airport piers in order to facilitate into-plane fuelling which will be connected to the storage terminal through a twin pipeline.
