Solvochem becomes a supplier of aviation gasoline in the Middle East

Posted 18 September 2018 · Add Comment

Solvochem, a supplier of chemicals, petrochemicals, solvents and plastics worldwide, has invested in state-of-the-art facilities for drumming aviation gas (AvGas) at its Jebel Ali location.

 

The investment sees Solvochem become one of the leading suppliers of AvGas across the MENA and SEA regions. 

The facilities will increase the availability of AvGas, the fuel commonly used for piston engine aircraft, across MENA and SEA. This will enable aviation businesses in the regions to provide a prompt service to their customers by reducing delivery time of the fuel, while also assisting them to meet urgent or unexpected demand for AvGas. 

Tony Jouzy, Managing Director of Solvochem FZCO, commented: “This new facility provides our company the opportunity to become a leading supplier of AvGas throughout the MENA and SEA regions, including acting as a hub for other regions.” 

Alongside this investment, Solvochem has signed a Technical Service Agreement with Shell Aviation for HSSE support to ensure full adherence and compliance with the latest safety standards at the facility. Shell Aviation will also supply and ship AvGas loaded in ISO tanks for Solvochem’s onward distribution. 

Jouzy added: “Our collaboration with Shell Aviation is an important part of this development. As one of the world’s leading providers of aviation technical services, Shell Aviation brings a wealth of global operational experience, technical expertise as well as local knowledge, and we look forward to working with them.”
