Location

Poland

Demand

Bulk storage of JP8

Solution

ISO container tanks

Response

High spec, bolt-together bulk storage

"Without creating permanent infrastructure, the US Army needed bulk storage of JP8 – around 50k gallons per base in Poland."

Flexible jet fuel storage, re-deployable and ready

The US Army rotates a huge number of forces personnel in Eastern Europe, using facilities hosted by home nations. Without creating permanent infrastructure, they needed bulk storage of JP8 – around 50k gallons per base in Poland. JP8 is a jet propellant widely specified by the US military. It’s similar to A1 commercial fuel but with anti-icing and corrosion inhibitors.

It’s hard to obtain commercially, so having a reliable, environmentally secure source is essential to operations. Powering ultra-sensitive engines means paying clinical attention to potential contaminants. We were tasked with supplying a clean, modular solution fit for redeployment anywhere in the world, and a solution to their lack of off-loading pumps.

Project Solution

"They needed versatile dispensing as every site could be different. We were ready to guarantee surety of supply and forward flexibility."

ISO container storage and premium pumps

We delivered three high-specification 40 ISO container tanks – with total epoxy lining. This ensured unadulterated jet propellant, free from water and microbiological contaminants. They were supplied fast with bolt-together linking kits, avoiding on-site welding. Each tank is double-walled and doesn’t require a berm or ground preparation. 

A set of fast, efficient pumps was designed on fork-liftable skid frames – creating a bulk loader capable of downloading a commercial tanker in 30-minutes. The project needed versatile retail dispensing, too – as every site layout could be different. Our JP8 solution delivers compliance, surety of supply and forward flexibility to the US Army.
