High requirements for fuel handling
Cooperation between Shell-Statoil-Total I/S and FORCE Technology ensures the fuel supplier valid documentation for handling aviation fuel in Copenhagen Airport.
"The rules according to which we work when it comes to quality control and fuel handling procedures in Copenhagen Airport, have been prepared internationally and include all airports in the world. Especially as regards measurements in our mobile and stationary systems we needed to get a verification and calibration performed with respect to the very strict requirements. We also needed a total solution for repair and maintenance of our equipment, which is why we decided to include FORCE Technology", recounts operations manager, Bent Mühring from Shell-Statoil-Total at Copenhagen Airport.
Top measurement capabilityTogether with Shell-Statoil-Total FORCE Technology has analysed the extensive requirements in "Guidelines for aviation fuel quality control and operating procedures for joint airport depots", and prepared a plan as to how verification and calibration should be performed.
"At their disposal, FORCE Technology has reference equipment, which accuracy in measuring ability is fully on a par with the requirements in the international rules. We have developed this equipment, which is also applied when calibrating technical equipment in the North Sea oil fields, and it suits Shell-Statoil-Total’s purpose perfectly. This is the expertise that we have brought into play at Copenhagen Airport", explains inspection engineer Lars Parmo from FORCE Technology.
Total serviceShell-Statoil-Total has been granted the very important documentation that their fuel handling is in accordance with international requirements and they look upon future inspections with peace of mind.
"The service agreement we have with FORCE Technology, makes many of our daily tasks easier. It is very convenient to have a contact person who holds the total expertise and who can have a competent dialogue with us. We get new rules and regulations on a continuous basis, e.g. from EU that require thorough professional knowledge in the field. Also in this respect is our cooperation with FORCE Technology very beneficial", says Bent Mühring.
