Replacement of the additive unit on Ascension Island


Ascension Island is a volcanic island located in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean, south of the equator.
The island is home to an airport with an aviation fuel depot. The existing additive equipment was at the end of its useful life and needed to be completely replaced.
The task was to manufacture equipment for the injection of AL41 de-icing inhibitor and AL61 fuel lubricant additive.
The delivery included measuring the levels in the additive tanks and a simple roof to protect the technology.
The lifetime of the equipment is for a minimum of 10 years and up to 20 years with proper maintenance.
