Exolum has begun operating the fuel storage terminal located at Lisbon’s Humberto Delgado airport, Portugal. Exolum was the successful bidder of a tender process organised by ANA – Aeroportos de Portugal VINCI Airports.

The company will manage and maintain the fuel storage terminal and the hydrant network. The agreement also covers the improvement to existing infrastructure, which must allow the supply of biofuels such as SAF.

This transaction, which is Exolum’s second European one outside Spain, after Ireland, consolidates Exolum’s presence and represents another step in the company’s internationalisation strategy within the aviation fuel supply sector. The company operates in nine countries (Spain, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands, Panama, Ecuador, Peru and Portugal) with a pipeline network of over 6,000 km, 68 storage terminals and 47 airport facilities, and a total storage capacity of more than 11 million m3.
