ELECTRIC REFUELING VEHICLES
A World First in Jet Fuel Supply
As TFS Akaryakıt Hizmetleri A.Ş., we have achieved a first by having the jet fuel supply vehicles we use on the apron electrically manufactured with a project we developed together with our domestic stakeholders within the scope of the jet fuel supply service we carry out at Istanbul airport. By converting 50 jet fuel supply vehicles we supplied within the scope of the project into electric, we have achieved 9000 tons less carbon emissions so far. In the transformation of electric vehicles, Önderyol and Katmerciler companies from Turkey played a role as responsible stakeholders.
An Exemplary Project in Domestic Know-How Development
The project is the first among global jet fuel companies and was shared with members at the IATA Technical Forum. Thanks to this project we have realized, know-how has been acquired in the field of industrial electric vehicle transformation in Turkey and has contributed to the reduction of environmental and noise pollution and energy consumption.
With this project, TFS has realized an exemplary project in the electrification processes of industrial vehicles in Turkey.
TFS Green for the Environment:
TFS Management, who stated that they will continue to increase environmentally sensitive applications and that this project is only the beginning, stated that more than 650,000 replenishments have been made with electric dispensaries since April 2019. Among all replenishments, the rate of replenishments with electric dispensaries was 97%. With the project:
- 5385 tonnes less CO2 emissions in total
- 1024 m3 less diesel consumption per year
- Noise pollution prevention was achieved.
