ECO Aviation Fuel Facility

In 2002, ECO signed a 40-year Franchise Agreement with the Hong Kong Airport Authority to design, construct and operate an Aviation Fuel Facility (AFF) supplying fuel for aircraft at the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA). This project consists of eight tanks with a gross aviation fuel storage capacity of 264,000 m3, and a jetty with two berths, of which the 1st loading platform can accommodate vessels from 10,000 to 80,000 dwt, whereas the 2nd loading platform can do so from 10,000 to 50,000 dwt. The aviation fuel is transported from Tuen Mun to the HKIA through two undersea pipelines. AFF was fully operational by Nov 2010. With its thoroughfare of 6 million tonnes of fuel a year, it is one of the largest energy infrastructure facilities in Hong Kong.
