Unusual Turning Circle at Doha Airport

Wed May 01, 2019 8:21 pm

I have noticed something unusual on FR24. There is a turning circle positioned adjacent to the taxiway at the threshold of runway 16L.
I picked this up from an A350 being stopped there having departed from what I think is the cargo terminal. It looks like some kind of fuelling point. Or maybe a holding point for slot restrictions? The satellite picture though shows ground equipment around an aircraft.

What is it? Never seen one before.

It's labeled as an isolation stand in the Jepp chart, possibly for quarantining aircraft
