McConnell Dowell is pleased to announce that we have been awarded Terminal Development Plan (TDP) Fuel Diversion and Fuel Network Compliance Stages 2 & 3 by Auckland International Airport Ltd (AIAL).

AIAL manages the country’s largest and fastest growing airport and has an ambitious 30-year expansion plan it needs to implement to service this growth.

McConnell Dowell has an extensive mechanical self-perform capability and track record and we are excited at the opportunity to partner with AIAL to deliver a high quality and safe project for their aviation fuel infrastructure.

The work consists of:

  • Re-routing a new 600m section of the existing DN 450 (18”) buried steel pipeline fuel supply main to enable the construction of a new domestic jet terminal baggage handling building.
  • Excavation, civil repairs, mechanical repairs, and reinstatement to various maintenance items on the airside Jet A1 fuel supply network, with new works consisting of a 68m steel fuel pipeline and the replacement of approximately 1800m2 of concrete apron.

The reliability of aviation fuel infrastructure is critical to the airport. This project is being undertaken in a busy, operational airside environment with the pipeline being laid in sections whilst maintaining fuel supply throughout airport facilities.
