BPCL Enhances Aviation Fueling Capacity with New Hydrant Facilities at Manohar International Airport

Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL), one of India's leading downstream oil producers, has inaugurated cutting-edge hydrant facilities at the newly established Manohar International Airport in north Goa.

The inauguration ceremony, led by Shri Sukhmal Jain, Director (Marketing) BPCL, saw the presence of Shri Kanwarbir Singh Kalra, Deputy CEO of GMR Goa International Airport Ltd (GGIAL), along with senior leadership from both BPCL and GGIAL.

BPCL's introduction of these advanced hydrant facilities is a strategic move to address the escalating refueling demands at the new greenfield airport. The Manohar International Airport is a significant addition to Goa's aviation infrastructure, complementing the existing Naval airport in Dabolim. The latter has faced limitations due to restricted operational hours for civil aircraft. With the commencement of operations at Manohar International Airport, the combined traffic at both airports has surged.

Shri Sukhmal Jain emphasized, "The inauguration of these state-of-the-art hydrant facilities at Manohar International Airport marks a significant milestone in BPCL's efforts to enhance aviation infrastructure in India. This strategic expansion aims to meet the increasing refueling demands and ensure seamless operations. BPCL remains committed to pioneering advancements that support the robust growth of the aviation sector, reinforcing our dedication to efficiency, safety, and customer satisfaction."

Spanning across 6 acres of land, the hydrant fuel farm boasts a storage capacity of 8,270 KL. The hydrant system features an intricate network of underground pipelines seamlessly connecting to the airport's 13 aircraft parking bays. The entire operation is meticulously managed through a fully automated console, ensuring efficiency and safety in fuel distribution.

Furthermore, in addition to the inauguration at MOPA, Aviation Fuelling Stations were virtually unveiled at nine other airports, bringing BPCL's total count of operated facilities to an impressive 75 airports nationwide.

This expansion aligns with the upward trajectory of India's domestic air passenger traffic, which witnessed approximately 15.4 crore passengers during the fiscal year 2023-24, signaling a significant resurgence in air travel.
