DCC & Shell Aviation Denmark*, a joint venture between Shell Aviation and DCC Energi, has signed an agreement with the leading fuel management tech firm i6 Group.
Starting with a deployment at Copenhagen Airport, the largest independent supplier of aviation fuel in Denmark will benefit from Fusion6, an into-plane management platform for more efficient refuelling operations, and Reconcile6, a fuel inventory management platform to help DDC & Shell Aviation Denmark better track and manage the fuel supply chain.
“This is an important partnership for us providing new digital tools to leverage and strengthen our ability to manage fuel and refuel aircraft. We look forward to seeing the technology maximise our operational efficiencies and among other things support the growing demand for SAF we see in the market. In that sense i6’s strong digital backbone and the data insights it provides will also assist airlines to meet their climate ambitions.”
- Sune Petersen, Head of Sustainability and Strategy at DCC & Shell Aviation Denmark.
Alongside Denmark, i6 recently announced new partnerships in the Nordic region, including major Swedish airports and numerous Norwegian airports. This means that airlines in the region could benefit from increased data availability through i6’s data portal, Perspective6, and multi-site e-fuelling efficiencies through eHandshake®.
Airlines such as SAS, Norwegian and FlyNorse could automate and digitalise fueling processes, saving time and providing visibility into global fueling operations. Major US carrier, Jetblue, recently realised these benefits and was able to streamline its fuelling operations with accurate, real-time data.
Alongside increased visibility for airlines, i6 technology minimises over-fuelling and ensures that only the optimal amount of fuel is uplifted to the aircraft, reducing unnecessary emissions due to extra weight. This is essential as the European Commission recently announced new rules as part of the ‘Fit for 55' legislative package which requires aircraft operators to refuel only with the necessary fuel for the flight.
"We’re proud to partner with Shell DCC, Denmark's largest aviation fuel supplier. Our innovative platforms will transform fuel management across the region, providing real-time data and operational efficiencies for airlines."
- Steve Uhrmacher, CEO at i6 Group
