Bagram Airfield (BAF), Afghanistan
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) – Philadelphia District
Client Needs and Requirements:
The U.S. Army was incurring unnecessary expense making as many as eight daily fuel deliveries via 10,000-gallon fuel trucks in order to transport fuel to the power plant. It was determined that extending the existing fuel line to the power plant via a new fuel skid would save considerable time and cost
Challenges and ISI’s Response:
Because no drawings existed, locating the existing fuel line and verifying its integrity was a challenge. Also, no drawings were available for the fuel yard pumping system, which made verifying the plant’s capability to pump on that fuel line difficult.
ISI’s in-country management team worked closely with the COTR to resolve these issues in a timely manner, allowing the project to proceed smoothly.
A fully operation fuel line was installed, which at peak capacity delivers in excess of 650,000 gallons of fuel per week to the power plant.
