Reliable fuel storage system
Reliable fuel storage system, that is easily transportable (stacked within ISO container) and self-contained. Medical facilities gain reliable fuel storage system.
The US Navy builds and maintains expeditionary medical platforms (EXMEDs) to support contingency operations, humanitarian assistance operations, and other real world events and exercises. The unit is responsible for mobilizing expeditionary medical facilities (ISO USMC); therefore, they store numerous Field Hospitals in their expeditionary War Reserve Material (WRM) warehouse, ready to deploy at a moment’s notice. The equipment could sit in storage for years at a time, allowing the fuel bladders to decay over time, resulting in mission critical issues when they deployed. CHALLENGE Reliable fuel storage system, that is easily transportable (stacked within ISO container) and self-contained. Medical facilities gain reliable fuel storage system. The unit continuously struggled maintaining aging bladders and spill berms. Their SIXCON fuel storage systems required secondary containment and relied on a gravity feed to provide fuel flow.
Additionally, both the bladder and SIXCON require an external manifold in order to support the new AMMPS Micro-grid; which drives more spill containment and increases the risk of leaks, pilferage, and contamination. They also needed the flexibility to consolidate or disperse the fuel tanks.
WG provided 8x TCT1000s to support their AMMPs generators micro-grid. The baffled design also offered flexibility to quickly disperse the systems full or empty. WG also included one TCT1000 with an additional Tactical Pump Kit capable of refueling anything from vehicles up to small frame aircraft. Refueling anything from vehicles up to small frame aircraft ‘tweak to’ refueling various assets from vehicles to small aircraft.

The US Navy moves all of their equipment in 20ft ISO containers and the TCT1000 fits within a 20ft ISO container, stacked 2-high, allowing them to easily transport the tanks around with their additional medical equipment.
