Tanks are fitted with an underwing and overwing hose reel, and are available with flow capacities from low flow (up to 1,000l/min) through one hose reel, and up 3,800l/min through two deck hoses on a semi-trailer aircraft refueller.

Semi-trailer refuellers feature capacities varying from 35,000l, 40,000l and 45,000l, available in both oval shape and ‘low profile’ or ‘underwing execution’, and a 60,000l and 85,000l version in double D section.

The towing vehicle can be fitted with a complete lifting platform and an enclosed metering and operating cabinet.

All vehicles are fitted with a measuring and monitoring system, which is specifically designed for the refuelling of aircraft and helicopters, and is fully compliant with the ATEX Directive and the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID).

Air-site, or dual air and road-site configurations are available, with single or twin axles, and an optional lifting platform.

Bespoke hydrant dispensers

STOKOTA manufactures hydrant dispensers according to the customer’s specification.

The modular design of the dispensers enables a variety of options, and flow rates can vary up to 4,000l/min.

Hydrant dispensers range from standard high-flow configurations to low-profile executions (height less than 2m), both with high or low-flow levels. The dispensers are equipped with a lifting platform to access the latest generation airplanes such as the A380 or B777.

Ergonomics, safety and advanced technology are key features from STOKOTA’s hydrant dispensers.

The R1D hydrant dispenser features:

  • A 4 x 2 chassis
  • Flow rate of 3,500l/min through two deck hoses
  • Flow rate of 1,000l/min through one hose reel
  • 11m intake line (4in hose) with 3m extension pantograph. Optional execution in full pantograph
  • Hydraulically powered lifting platform with 4.3m floor height
  • 4in deck pantograph or hoses
  • 4,000l/min filter or water separator
  • Wireless deadman system
  • Closed sampling system with pneumatic shell water detector and recovery tank with electronic level sensor


Established in 1963, STOKOTA initially specialised in the manufacture of welded storage tanks. In 1967, the company started producing road tankers, quickly becoming a market leader in the Benelux region.

STOKOTA has successfully built commercial and military aircraft refuellers for the Eastern European market, and a collection of 25 military units for the Belgian Air Force, implementing bespoke designs with the latest technology and a high level of quality.
