Fueling Planes In Bogota, Columbia
Tank refueling vehicles are still used in many airports throughout the world to transport the fuel from storage tanks to planes. The tank refueling vehicles add additional risks which could result in fires or even explosions caused by sparks from the vehicles’ engines. It also results in delays in getting fuel to the planes and limits how much fuel can be transferred to a plane at one time. As a result, larger airports such as El Dorado airport in Bogota, Columbia have installed an aircraft fuel hydrant system to transport their fuel. Fuel hydrant systems add additional safety and 100% reliability to the fuel transfer process while also increasing productivity and response time.
