APM Terminals Mumbai facilitates India’s first export of AVGAS 100 LL aviation fuel


APM Terminals Mumbai (GTI) has partnered with the Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. (IOCL) to export the first-ever AVGAS 100 LL aviation fuel consignment from India. AVGAS 100 LL is an aviation fuel used in training aircraft.

IOCL has produced the fuel in India since September 2022. However, this is the first time that AVGAS 100 LL has been exported from India. The container, carrying 80 barrels of AVGAS 100 LL, was loaded safely onto the MV Sofia, a Maersk service Vessel. The export event was flagged off by Mr Shrikant Vaidya, CMD of IOCL, IRS Unmesh Wagh, Dy Chairman of JNPA, and Sunay Mukerjee, COO of GTI, in the presence of the senior officials of IOCL, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust and GTI. IOCL appreciated the stringent safety and operational guidelines followed by GTI to evacuate the container smoothly.

Mr Sunil Kumar Nagdawne, Deputy General Manager Aviation IOCL Western Region, mentioned, “The team at IOCL is extremely thankful to GTI for all the support and cooperation provided during this momentous event. The close coordination among all the teams to ensure a safe and smooth export of the hazardous commodity from the terminal is remarkable. Truly world-class experience, and we as customers are delighted with your service.”

Mr Sunay Mukerjee, Chief Operating Officer at GTI, mentioned, “We, at GTI, are extremely humbled and honoured to be a part of the Government of India’s vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat and the Make in India initiative by facilitating the first consignment of AVGAS 100 LL export from our terminal. We are thankful to IOCL for choosing our terminal for this historic milestone. We are committed to serving our customers by turning around their cargo safely and swiftly at our terminal.”
