Expansion Fuels Greater Capacity

Increased Demand Requires Increased Resiliency and Capacity in Fuel Supply Chain

Airport fuel systems rely on many outside factors, and an upstream hardship can easily slow or prevent fuel from getting to the tanks. From a refinery shutdown or pipeline closure to bad fuel, many elements affect an airport’s incoming fuel supply. A failure of any of these factors can be catastrophic, thus creating the need for resiliency. One key way to provide resiliency is through increased capacity. An expansion project begins by performing a fuel storage capacity study to determine future capacity needs, making airports more resilient to future fuel supply issues.
