Alliance Partner and Schneider Electric Solutions deliver critical upgrade to help keep the planes on schedule

The airport's storage and hydrant company was faced with the critical challenge of an ageing bespoke pump controller producing spurious faults.

This client is the busiest single-runway airport in the world. With more than 660 aircraft movements daily, the efficiency of all aircraft fuelling systems is critical. The airports storage and hydrant company was faced with the critical challenge of maintaining a constant hydrant pressure of 7.5 to 9 bar. The pressure of the fuelling pumps, however, is directly affected by the number of aircraft being fuelled simultaneously. If the pressure in the fuelling pumps drops, flights are delayed.

An aging bespoke pump controller was producing spurious faults so to ensure minimal aircraft delay, the client decided to upgrade this element of the control system for fuelling and storage. One of Schneider Electric’s Alliance Partners, Cougar Automation, was employed to complete this vital upgrade.
