Rotork has helped upgrade and modernise a major Gatwick fuel farm, providing them with IQ3 intelligent actuators on Rotork’s Pakscan™ control network.

GASHCo is one of Gatwick Airport’s main fuel tank farms and has been using Rotork products for over 30 years. The actuators installed on the site are used on the fuel hydrants housed at Gatwick Airport.
