Project at a glance
Saunders International Ltd was awarded the contract for the design and construction of eleven jet fuel tanks for Crowley Solutions’ U.S. Defence fuels facility in Darwin. In addition to this design and construction works Saunders will provide the “EPCM” management services and construction expertise to develop the balance of plant works packages for the project.
The project has been awarded by the U.S. Defence Logistics Agency-Energy to Crowley, a global solutions provider based in the U.S., for the provision of fuel management and storage services for Pacific military operations. The new fuel storage facility will be built at East Arm at the Land Development Corporation's future bulk liquids area site in Darwin. The project is forecast to be completed over the next two years and will support the U.S. Defence operations in the Indo Pacific region. With a capacity of 300 million litres of ship aviation grade JP-5 turbine fuel and commercial grade Jet A-1 fuel, the facility will be the largest fuel storage project in the Northern Territory once built. The project is expected to create 400 construction jobs and 20 ongoing roles.
