ADF to get new fuel tankers

20th October 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Refuel International, based in Melbourne, Australia, has won a contract worth AUD$47 million to build new aviation fuel tankers for the Australian Defence Force (ADF), the Ministry of Defence announced on 18 October.

The new fleet of tankers will allow the ADF to retire its current refuelling vehicles. The new vehicles will be used to refuel helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft at Australian bases, and at the Royal Australian Air Force detachment at the Royal Malaysian Air Force Base Butterworth.

The total value of the project will exceed around $400 million. Around $360 million is expected to be contracted out over the 15-year lifespan of these vehicles for sustainment, maintenance and repair.
