Autonomy in Africa: Fueling the French Army in combat

Location

Africa – conflict zones

Demand

Long run-time generator refueling

Solution

Customized 100TTS

Response

Re-deployable military refueling

"They needed a solution that could be airlifted into place to provide generators with uninterrupted energy for 28-days or more."

A 28-day supply for constantly moving camps

In Africa, the French Army frequently moves camps through war zones. Everything they deploy in-theatre needs to be picked up and relocated to keep pace with transitional conflict. With unreliable, dirty local fuel supplies, they needed a solution that could be airlifted into place to provide generators with uninterrupted, secure energy for a minimum of 28-days. 

Every asset specified had to be operational and compliant across vast territories, including Africa, the Caribbean and at home in Europe. Our in-house engineering team fine-tuned a battle-proven solution precisely fit for purpose: ready to keep kit running in truly hostile conditions.

Project Solution

"This tailored solution was delivered with global certifications – BS799 for France and UL142 for Africa and the Americas."

Upgraded and resized for tactical delivery

We reduced the height of our tried and tested 100TTS tanks, allowing them to be air freighted via the French military fleet and commercial aircraft. We added extra feed and return points to simultaneously fuel four generators per tank, and aligned quick-release hoses to match their equipment provider’s spec. 

With some power units too small to prime the system, we added a hand priming pump, leaving nothing to chance. This tailored solution was delivered with global certifications – BS799 for France and UL142 for Africa and the Americas – and arrived as a plug and play solution, finished in the correct camouflage for its army unit.
