Fort Campbell has a fleet of winged aircraft and helicopters that needs to be maintained and fueled. The fort also receives visiting aircraft of all kinds that need refueling.
In an expected 20-year agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency Energy, WSP was chosen to operate and maintain all aviation fuel functions at Fort Campbell. The contract is a combination of government and contractor-owned facilities. As contractor, WSP operates all facilities.
Under the agreement, WSP:
- Built and operates a 600,000-gallon JP8 fuel storage facility, a hydrant system that can refuel heavy aircraft, and a truck bulk loading facility.
- Operates existing bulk JP8 fuel storage facilities and pipelines.
- Assumes fueling responsibility at the Oasis fuel storage site and helipads (for hot helicopter fueling) and at the Sabre Army Heliport AHP and helipads.
- Provides a fleet of refueling tankers for cold refueling services to Army and visiting aircraft, ranging from light helicopters to the heaviest fixed wing planes.
