Cylingas upgrades fuel facilities at Al Maktoum Int’l Airport

ENOC subsidiary, Cylingas, has completed the upgradation of five jet-fuel tanks at Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai

Cylingas Engineering & Construction has completed upgradation and retrofitting activities for fuel facilities at Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai.

The company, which is a subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), conducted mechanical, piping, electrical, and instrumentation, as well as civil and structural works for five jet-fuel tanks at the airport.

The contract was awarded by Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects (DAEP). Cylingas worked as the project’s main contractor, and design work was completed in coordination with Dar Al Handasah.

The work was completed according to the original schedule without lost-time injury (LTI).

Commenting on the project, HE Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group chief executive officer of ENOC, said: “The region’s aviation sector continues to record robust growth, with Dubai Airports setting global records in their operational efficiency.

“The upgrade and maintenance works by Cylingas at Al Maktoum International Airport defines it as a national engineering and contracting company [that is] capable of executing key infrastructure projects to further the UAE’s aviation sector.”

The fuel facilities’ upgradation and retrofitting works will eradicate vapour loss, resulting in long-term cost benefits, according to Cylingas. Emission control-related benefits, meanwhile, are expected to improve the tanks’ environmental performance.

Al Maktoum International Airport is set to become the world’s largest airport, with an annual capacity of 160 million passengers once all phases of expansion have been completed.
