Skytanking Calulo (Pty) Limited is the operator of an aviation fuel hydrant and storage system for King Shaka International Airport, as well as the into-plane fueling service.
Skytanking Calulo, a joint venture between Skytanking Holding GmbH and Calulo Investments (Pty) Limited, was awarded a six year contract by Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) in September 2010 following a public tender. The tender ranked bidders on technical competence in aviation fuelling and the proposed cost of providing fuelling services. The fuel facility at King Shaka International Airport was built by ACSA and comprises 6,000 cubic meters of fuel storage, 8 kilometres of underground hydrant system with 41 fuelling pits, a fuel depot for into-plane operations and a road fuel station for airport vehicles.
Skytanking Calulo has invested in six new into-plane fuelling vehicles to fuel the 80-100 flights that are expected every day.
