More than 400 tons of Tenaris pipes now form part of the infrastructure of the new Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport in Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Located 10 kilometers south of Tulum city, the new airport terminal is an initiative led by the National Defense Secretariat (SEDENA, in Spanish) and is intended to become a major transportation hub in the region. One of the key aspects of the airport was the construction of a fueling station that is vital for aircraft refueling. This is where Tenaris pipes came into play.
"The 6,140 meters of pipes were used for the construction of a jet fuel pipeline that will serve to refuel both naval and commercial aircraft arriving at or departing from this airport. The installation of an efficient and reliable fuel supply system is essential to ensure smooth operations and uninterrupted service at the airport terminal,” explained Josué Zilli, Senior Sales Manager at Tenaris in Mexico.
Tenaris is also monitoring supply opportunities for other essential project components, such as pipes for micropiles, small columns or pillars typically made of materials like steel or composite, drilled into the ground and used as a structural construction element to transfer loads from buildings or bridges to deeper and more stable soil layers.
With Tenaris’ involvement in the development of the Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport, which will boost connectivity in the Mexican Caribbean, the company is reinforcing its position as a reliable partner in sustainable development projects that will enhance the country’s infrastructure transformation.
