Exolum secures contract to manage the fuel terminal at Shannon Airport in Ireland
The company will provide fuel operation, maintenance and into-plane fuelling services under a two-year agreement
Exolum will operate the fuel storage terminal located at Shannon airport (Ireland) as the successful bidder of a tender process organised by the Shannon Airport Group. The company will manage the terminal with facilities for the receipt of fuel by vessel, as well as storage and dispatch, and will also be the only agent to provide into-plane fuelling services to the different airlines operating at the airport. Exolum will manage the terminal under a two-year agreement.
Shannon Airport offers UK, European and transatlantic flights for both passengers and goods, and will operate 35 routes to 11 countries this year. In addition to a hydrant system, the storage terminal is an upper tier Seveso site with a capacity of over 42,000 cubic metres.
This transaction consolidates Exolum’s presence in Ireland, where it already operates at Dublin Airport, and represents another step in the company’s internationalisation strategy within the aviation fuel supply sector, in which the company has extensive experience.
Exolum is an IATA Strategic Partner and member of the Joint Inspection Group (JIG). In addition, it belongs to the aviation committee of the Energy Institute and is an affiliate member of the Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association (ALTA) and Airports Council International (ACI).
