Retrofit of legacy actuators provide Indian airport with critical performance data

An aviation fuel station at a major Indian airport has been enhanced with the installation of intelligent electric actuators from Rotork. The customer wished to upgrade to the latest in intelligent actuation technology, benefitting from the ability to gather data to plan for maintenance activities in advance, as well as a high degree of accuracy and reliability.

The airport in Kolkata is known as Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport (NSCBIA). It is the fifth busiest in the whole of India and annually handles approximately 9 million passengers. It was expanded in 2013 by the addition of a new terminal. Aviation fuel is collected from nearby Haldia Refinery by tanker and delivered to NSCBIA airport. Over 30 IQ intelligent multi-turn electric actuators have been ordered for installation at an aviation fuel station at the airport. They are replacing existing K-range Rotork actuators that operate gate valves; around half the ordered actuators have now been installed at the storage tanks at the station.
