Between November 2019 and July 2020, Augel renewed the complete fuel-tight drainage system of the tank terminal at Düsseldorf Airport and subsequently replaced the separator system. The entire work was done in compliance with WHG and was carried out by Augel itself.

Continuous operation was guaranteed during the work. This construction project posed a special challenge, as more than 80, 100 tonne kerosene wagons arrive and depart every day. Therefore, the construction site was divided into 6 individual construction sections, of which no more than 2 construction sections were allowed to be open at the same time. In this way the kerosene cars could be refuelled at any time.
To ensure that no drip losses from refuelling reach open trenches, a 295-metre long ad hoc protective wall was also installed, which diverted drip losses into the old stock until the plant was completely renewed.
