The Rostov fuelling facility has a storage capacity of up to 8,900m³ and can increase capacity by a further 50%, ensuring fuel supply during the World Cup as well as meeting passenger growth and expanded airport capacity.

“It’s equipped with high-speed fuel receiving and distribution modules, a fuel pump station which enables tank-to-tank transfer, and four new refueler trucks with lifting platforms, allowing the fuelling of any type of aircraft at a speed of up to 2,400 litres per minute,” said Seamus Kilgallon, Global Head of Aviation, Puma Energy, in a company release.

Platov International Airport has replaced the “old” Rostov airport. It is situated 40km from Rostov-on-Don, which is this year’s World Cup host city.
