Area 82 – Bagram Airfield (BAF), Afghanistan
Program Manager Power Projection Enablers (PM-P2D)
Client Needs and Requirements:
The existing fuel storage tanks were not force-protection compliant, creating a safety hazard for personnel at the site. This requirement was to replace the existing steel fuel tanks with a reinforced concrete storage vault.
Challenges and ISI’s Response:
Due to rising tensions with Pakistan, shipping through that country blocked, forcing ISI to ship the materials and equipment needed through non-traditional northern routes. Had to put temporary fueling measures in place to carry the outage. Integrating with existing equipment – the scope had to be changed numerous times as different obstacles where encountered in the existing equipment.
In spite of material delivery issues outside of ISI’s or the client’s control, ISI was able to finish the project prior to the extended POP.
ISI completed the following tasks to successfully complete this project:
- Furnished and installed four (4) 3000 gallon above-grade CONVAULT fuel tanks.
- A change order midway through the project included adding four (4) additional day tanks to the project to supply fuel to existing generators that did not have onboard day tanks.
