Terminals seek approval for Corio Avgas tank

The growth in the use of light aircraft locally and throughout Australia as well as South East Asia is dramatically increasing demand for Aviation Gasoline (Avgas).

As a result Terminals Pty Ltd, Australia's leading liquid chemical storage company, is considering the construction of an Avgas storage tank at its Corio site near Geelong.

The site is ideally situated to receive and store Avgas because of existing dedicated pipelines, tanker loading gantry and other infrastructure.

Terminals is proposing to build a 5000 cubic metre internal floating roof storage tank that will be constructed to strict international safety standards as stipulated by government regulations.

The company is currently seeking works approval for the construction of the tank from the EPA and planning permission from the City of Greater Geelong.

For further information about the application please contact Carlo Fasolino, state manager of Terminals Pty Ltd on O3 8387 1926.
