Partnering with our global airline clients to develop strategies to ensure the security and reliability of aviation fuel and de-icing fluid services at airports.
FSM has helped global commercial airlines and worked with airport authorities to manage the development of aircraft refueling infrastructure to accommodate the expansion of major Canadian airports over the last fifteen years. This role has included a focus on the operational configuration of new fuel systems at airports in order to meet peak flight demands at passenger terminals.
Following this work, we have also assisted our airline clients in positioning airports for longer-term growth and stability in the fuel supply chain. Beyond airport fuel terminals and hydrant systems, we have played a key role in the planning and development of new upstream storage and distribution facilities. Whether through the establishment of rail fuel supply into Pearson International Airport, the construction of a marine terminal in Vancouver, or the current development of a marine terminal in Montreal, FSM Group assists global airlines in strategic fuel planning decisions for airports.
FSM has expanded its expertise to aircraft de-icing infrastructure project management, consortium administration and equipment procurement. Through a collaborative partnership between airport authorities and airlines, FSM is uniquely suited to navigate complex challenges and develop strategic solutions that result in more cost effective, safe, environmentally sustainable and reliable aircraft de-icing systems at major airports across North America.
Working on behalf of our airline and airport clients and alongside professional de-icing services operators, FSM spearheads the completion of new centralized, state of the art de-icing facilities which in turn provide commercial airlines and airports with a much improved environmentally sustainable, efficient and safe de-icing operation. These multi aircraft bay automated de-icing facilities include complex underground glycol recovery systems designed to capture the vast majority of de-icing fluid sprayed on aircraft thereby containing as much fluid on site as possible. Where feasible, these new facilities are designed to function as a near 100% closed loop aircraft de-icing system with recovered effluent glycol fluid being recycled back to usable de-icing fluid on site in airline owned facilities.
