Crowley Solutions, a leading provider of energy, maritime, technology and supply chain services for the U.S. Government, was awarded a multi-year contract from the Defence Logistics Agency Energy, to build and operate a 500,000-barrel, contractor owned and operated bulk fuel storage in Fairbanks, Alaska.
The initial contract is for four years, with an additional five-year option. Engineering, permitting and site surveys have begun, with ground-breaking expected in August of this year, and “substantial completion” expected by January 2022.
Crowley’s facility will provide 500,000 barrels of fuel storage with dedicated product pipelines, including a tie-in into the Government-owned fuel pipeline currently servicing Eielson Air Force Base.
Additional infrastructure to “provide increased operational resiliency” includes a tank truck loading facility (TTLF), rail car loading facility and on-site product additives.
This new Government-dedicated facility will be the second of its kind for Crowley in Alaska. Crowley acquired a facility used as Defence Fuels Support Point Anchorage in 2011. Then in 2015, the company expanded that terminal over a 12-month period, adding nearly 500,000 barrels of new storage. The company also installed on site product additive storage and injection infrastructure, as well as a state-of-the-art TTLF between 2017 and 2018.
