Exolum will operate the fuel storage terminal located at Shannon airport, Ireland, as the successful bidder of a tender process organised by the Shannon Airport Group. The company will manage the terminal with facilities for the receipt of fuel by vessel, as well as storage and dispatch, and will also be the only agent to provide into-plane fuelling services to the different airlines operating at the airport. Exolum will manage the terminal under a two-year agreement.
Shannon Airport offers UK, European and transatlantic flights for both passengers and goods, and will operate 35 routes to 11 countries this year. In addition to a hydrant system, the storage terminal has a capacity of over 42,000 m3.
This transaction consolidates Exolum’s presence in Ireland, where it already operates at Dublin airport, and represents another step in the company’s internationalisation strategy within the aviation fuel supply sector.
