Air BP Adds New All-electric Refueller at Brisbane Airport

Air BP, the international aviation fuel products and services provider, has welcomed a new all-electric refueller at Brisbane Airport (BNE) Australia.

The Jet A-1 refueller uses Lithium-Ion batteries and digital charging mechanisms, and is expected to reduce Air BP’s operational and maintenance costs. The company said it is the first all-electric hazardous goods vehicle and refueller approved for use in Australia.

The refueller, manufactured in collaboration with SEA Electric and Refuel International, carries approximately 16,000 liters of fuel and can operate for a full day following an overnight charge.

“Our work reflects Air BP’s ambition to become a net zero company by 2050 or sooner and to help the world get to net zero by working with our customers to help decarbonize fueling operations,” said Daniel Tyzack, Managing Director, Air BP Asia-Pacific.

“This refueller delivers to the aircraft with zero fuel consumed and zero tail pipe emissions whilst meeting the requisite levels of safety and regulatory compliance,” Geoff Pinner, General Manager, Refuel International.

Air BP launched its first electric refueller in 2002 at Long Beach California and introduced the first generation of electric hydrant dispensers at Brisbane airport in 2005.
