Latest Projects & Achievements
Stokota latest projects include the build of 3 aircraft refuellers for the civil airport of Belgrade for NIS (Petroleum Industry of Serbia). These are aircraft refuellers with a 45.000L semi-trailer, towed by an MAN chassis with a lifting platform and operating cabin. Measuring equipment is the Alfons Haar PreciFUEL system.
Maximum flow rate is 2500 l/min through the deck hoses (these are 2 fuel hoses which can be connected with the fuelling couplings of the aircraft). Defuelling is possible with the underwing nozzles.
The Second project is the build of 3 aircraft refuellers for the civil airport of Malta (Company ENEMED). These are aircraft refuellers browser + trailer with a combined capacity of 49.000L. The chassis is also a MAN chassis. The measuring equipment is also the Alfons Haar PreciFUEL system. Maximum flow rate is 2000 l/min through two deck hoses on the lifting platform. The unit is also capable of defueling through the underwing nozzles.
Final project includes the build of 1 aircraft refueller for the airport of Chisinau in Moldovia. The customer here is Lukoil. The aircraft refueller is a 25.000L bowser on a 8x2 DAF chassis. The measuring equipment is Alfons Haar PreciFUEL equipment as well. Maximum flow rate of the unit is 1200 l/min.
Stokota has won another small project for the airport of Schiphol in the Netherlands for ground support equipment. This involves building a drain cart. This is used for collecting fuel samples and daily drained fuels.
- 6 hydrant carts with solar installation and Avery Hardoll MasterLoad III measuring equipment are delivered to the airport of Schiphol in the Netherlands. They are performing perfectly. Together with the hydrant carts there were also 6 fuelling stairs which we’ve build (all according the ongoing standards). They can vary in height between 400 and 900 mm from ground level.
- We will be attending the inter airport show in Munich in October. (Outdoor Area, Stand D56 Sector: interRAMP).
- We have attended the bi-annual IATA fuel forum in St. Petersbourgh where our company CEO, Ronald Lefebvre, has given a presentation on the sense or non-sense of sensors in modern aircraft refuellers.
