Norton Consultants Pty Ltd has been awarded tender from Adelaide Airport Limited
10 July 2018
Australia’s Norton Consultants Pty Ltd has been awarded a tender from Adelaide Airport Limited for the replacement and upgrade of existing automation and controls associated with the Adelaide Airport JUHI hydrant refuelling facility. Work has begun on this significant project and is expected to be completed later in 2018. The Adelaide Airport Joint Operated Service Facility (JOSF) Depot, as it currently exists, was designed and constructed for The Shell Company of Australia in 1989 and completed, with some minor modifications in late 1994. Upon completion, the Adelaide JOSF Depot comprised two large above-ground JET-A1 storage tanks and one AVGAS tank relocated from the original depot. Tanker truck loading and unloading facilities, a new administration office and workshop, firefighting and emergency generator facilities were all provided as part of the new depot, then operated by Shell Aviation. More than a decade after completion, Adelaide Airport Limited began the design and installation of the Joint User Hydrant Installation (JUHI), comprising the installation of four new hydrant pumps, a diesel hydrant pump, new standby generator and upgraded electrical instrumentation, controls and automation. In 2004, as part of a general upgrade at Adelaide Airport, including a new passenger terminal and fuel hydrant, Adelaide Airport Limited initiated the design and installation of the JUHI facility, comprising four new 110-kW electric hydrant pumps, a diesel hydrant pump, a new standby generator and upgraded electrical instrumentation, controls and automation. This JUHI Upgrade was completed in late 2005 and handed over in early 2006 to ExxonMobil, which had taken over the operation of the Adelaide JOSF Depot from Shell some years earlier.
