Defense Logistics Agency Energy Americas at Houston Commander Army Lt. Col. Martine Kidd attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony marking the completion of a three-year construction project at Naval Supply Fleet Logistics Center, Jacksonville, Fla., Jan. 31.
The nearly $23 million military construction project replaced seven 60-year-old bulk fuel tanks with five new 80,000 barrel state-of-the-art fuel storage tanks.
"The project at Jacksonville is a model of the DLA partnership with the Services at its very best. The project was extensive, yet came in on time and under budget," said Kidd. "Even more impressive, with the Navy's superlative focus, the day-to-day warfighter support functions continued uninterrupted," she added.
“Successful completion of this project demonstrates the Navy's continued commitment to environmental stewardship through the upgrading of fuel facilities with the latest technology for safe storage and movement of petroleum products," said NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville Southeast Regional Fuel Director Navy Lt. Cmdr. Michael Lorrain.
