Nolinor Aviation has announced that, effective Feb. 1, 2013, it will deploy the award-winning Bulk Aviation Transportation Tank (BATT) on its Boeing 737 cargo aircraft. Nolinor’s aircraft will be the first jet planes in the world equipped with the BATT which is a four-time award-winner for new technology development and a Canadian product that has revolutionized bulk fuel delivery to remote northern areas.
“We’re delighted to be the first jet operator to use this new technology which provides a substantial advantage to our many valued clients in the north and across Canada,” says David Morgan, director of charter operations for Nolinor.
“The speed at which our 737 jet travels, along with its payload capability of up to 4,200 gallons of fuel, allows customers to achieve new savings over the aircraft types that have been traditionally used to deliver bulk fuel,” says Morgan. “This literally gives us the capability to deliver fuel to the top of the world, if needed, but mostly will allow mining and exploration customers a more cost-effective option with significant savings on their fuel delivery costs.”Nolinor’s 737-200 jet aircraft are capable of landing and taking off from runways made of gravel, pavement and even ice, on strips as short as 5,000 feet. The jets operate with two crew members and cruise at speeds of up to 450 knots carrying payloads of up to 30,000 pounds.Source: skiesmag
