The world’s most advanced collapsible aviation tank & winner of 4 awards for innovation and technology
The BATT is Transport Canada certified for Transportation of Dangerous Goods and is also approved by the FAA in the United States.

Advanced Construction

The unique double-walled design of the BATT incorporates a strapping system to secure the tank to the aircraft.  This allows for minor shifting of the inner tank during flight operations which ensures that the inner tank does not develop small micro tears along the seams which can eventually cause tank failure.  It also allows the tank to be more evenly secured to the aircraft because the strapping can’t shift on the outer tank.The outer tank of the BATT is made from 32 oz OBU urethane fabric.  This fabric is typically used in oil boom containment and SEI’s Type 1 helicopter Bambi Buckets that are in constant movement.  It is designed to be resistant to hydrocarbons, abrasion and puncture.  The inner tank is designed specifically to be in constant contact with hydrocarbons and is made from proprietary fabric that exceeds military specification MIL-T-52983G.Applications
Military and Aid Market
Military and aid relief clients use remote fuel caches for emergency response operations and the re-supply of forward operating areas that are cut off because ground transport is too risky or other access is unavailable. The bulk aviation transport tanks provide the perfect solution for these mission critical needs.Civilian Market
Greenfield sites and hard to access locations struggle with delivery from tanker trucks or barges so aircraft or helicopters are typically used to transport fuel supplies. With the use of the BATT, remote site operators have an innovative new option that is both economical and efficient. Operators can fly fuel out, empty the BATT, roll it up and then head back with a full load of cargo or passengers.

Features
The BATT has been approved to carry the following fuel types:

  • Diesel Fuel Class 3 UN1202, Packing Group III
  • Aviation Fuel Class 3 UN 1863 Packing Group III

Economic Savings

  • The BATT allows quick reconfiguration of the aircraft from hauling cargo to hauling bulk fuel.  Mixed loads are also possible.
  • The BATT also allows operators to purchase and transport bulk fuel while fully maximizing the aircraft’s lifting capacity since the tanks fill the fuselage area correctly and are lightweight (compared to drums or steel tanks).
  • Dead head flights (with no cargo or passengers) are minimized because the BATT can be folded up and stored when not in use.
  • The BATT eliminates damage to the aircraft caused when handling fuel drums, reduces the cost of fuel loss for fuel spoiled in drums and provides a cost savings to operators who continually lose money because they cannot return damaged drums

Increased Safety

  • The BATT comes in a range of sizes to fit various aircraft.  A built-in strapping system insures that the payload doesn’t shift unlike drums which are not specifically designed for aircraft interiors.
  • The BATT eliminates the continued handling of drums which can result in damage and spills inside the aircraft.  The BATT is double-walled to minimize abrasion and puncture damage and provides built-in secondary containment.
  • The BATT has two unique baffle designs, one for fixed wing and one for rotary wing aircraft to control center of gravity shifting in flight.

Environmental Impact

  • The BATT allows remote site operators to eliminate empty drums which are often abandoned because of the high cost associated with removing them.  This prevents environmental impacts in remote and, often, sensitive locations.
  • Fewer drums means fewer spills due to handling.
