Fuel facilities upgraded at Al Maktoum, reducing vapour loss
Cylingas Engineering & Construction, a subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC Group), has completed upgrades to fuel facilities at Al Maktoum International Airport.
The project comprised a refurbishment package that included mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation, as well as civil and structural works for five jet fuel tanks.
The upgrade and retrofitting works to the jet fuel terminal and within the airfield will eradicate vapour loss, resulting in long term cost benefits as well as emission controls, which will support sustainability initiatives.
Cylingas was awarded the main contract by Dubai Airport Engineering Projects (DAEP), the engineering organisation responsible for the design, master planning, infrastructure development and construction of Dubai’s aviation sector.
The design work for the Al Maktoum International Airport project was completed in coordination with Dar Al Handasah, with zero lost time injury.
“The region’s aviation sector continues to record robust growth with Dubai Airports setting global records in their operational efficiency,” said Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group CEO of ENOC. “The upgrade and maintenance works by Cylingas at Al Maktoum International Airport defines it as a national engineering and contracting company, capable of executing key infrastructure projects to further develop the UAE’s aviation sector.”
Al Maktoum International Airport is set to be the world’s largest airport with a capacity of 160 million passengers per annum when it is completed.
“With the airport poised to achieve impressive passenger traffic growth, we are honoured to be part of a project that will define Dubai as the region’s aviation hub,” added Al Falasi.
Dar Al Handasah recognised Cylingas for its best EHS practices and performance. The project team was able to recycle the largest quantity of solid hazardous waste among all the active contractors working with DAEP at the airport site.
With over four decades of experience in the oil and gas industry, Cylingas has executed several projects for global oil majors and for regional NOCs and has a proven track record of providing safe, reliable and world class products and services.
Cylingas provides design, engineering, project management and construction services as well as the commissioning of bulk storage terminals including vertical storage tanks (API and other codes), plant piping, structural, mechanical, civil and electrical instrumentation works for process plants, oil & storage terminals at airports and power plants.
It also manufactures a wide range of static equipment such as pressure vessels, columns, spheres, tanks and skid modules.
