Air BP opened its new fuel farm at Den Helder Airport (DHR) in the Netherlands, which represents a $1.4-million investment and follows Air BP’s take-over of fuel operations at the airport in September 2012. The facility will provide a fit for purpose fuel farm serving core business customers including CHC Helicopters Netherlands, NHV, HeliHolland and DanCopter as they transport offshore personnel to and from oil and gas producing platforms in the North Sea.
The project was completed in February, and is expected to increase the company’s general aviation business in the Netherlands. Air BP secured the new fuel operations business at Den Helder based on its ability to offer a full package of technical expertise including project management, equipment maintenance and services to support the airport’s future expansion plans. Air BP’s new fuel operation at Den Helder is set to significantly increase its General Aviation (GA) business in the Netherlands and further optimize its logistics in the area.
