The JET A-1 fuel after the refining is stored to three dedicated tanks that are used only for JET A-1 and are
according to AAFPC's high quality Rules.The capacity of the two tanks is 8660m³ each and of the capacity
of the third one is 9200m³ and is used as spare.
-The jet fuel is being transferred via two pumps.
-The pumps are of centrifugal type with electric motors.
-From an operational point of view, the project is divided in two phases.
-During the present phase only two of the pumps are available, one operating, one spare.
-In the future -upon rise of capacity- two pumps will be operating connected in series and a third identical pump
will be installed as spare.
A filter/water separator is located downstream of the pump station in order to remove solid particulates and water
from aviation fuel.
A metering station is installed to measure the transferred quantity of the jet fuel including a Positive Displacement
Meter and the relevant flow control unit, a deaerator and a basket filter. The metering station is certified for custody
The pump station, the filter/water separator and the metering station constitute the Unit 6500.
The scraper launcher trap and the inlet valve of the pipeline, are located within the refinery area downstream of
the metering station and compose Unit 6100.
The inlet isolation valve is an above ground, motor operated full bore, double block & bleed gate valve with welded
ends (Actuator Rotork IQ series). The inlet valve is also equipped with a by-pass valve.
