Four new parking stands for code F aircraft were implemented by Luxembourg Airport as part of its continued development as one of Europe’s major air cargo hubs.

In the early stages of the project it was identified that hydrant fuelling of large cargo aircraft would be an advantage to the airport and so the opportunity was taken to install hydrant infrastructure.

eJet was assigned the design and engineering of the new hydrant infrastructure.

This included:The minimum allowable infrastructure has now been installed and it will be the

responsibility of the future fuel farm

developer to complete all neccesarry works and bring it into operation.

  • Detailed input into materials procurement;
  • construction contract tendering and
  • on site supervision of construction.

eJet is also working on a separate project to assist Luxembourg Airport in finding a fuel farm operator (DFBOT).

The hydrant system for the 4 new code F stands at the P7 apron will transform the way in which cargo aircraft are fuelled at this part of the airport. eJet provided design, materials procurement, construction tendering services and on-site construction supervision for the hydrant system and this was key in enabling us to deliver this complex and time-critical project
