Agility JV wins new US Air Force contract
Kuwait City, July 8, 2008
The US Defense Energy Support Center (DESC) has awarded four fuel-management contracts worth $8.6 million over five years to a joint venture led by Agility Defense & Government Services (DGS).
The joint venture, AFH Fuel Services, will operate, maintain, secure and provide safety and environmental protection for aviation and ground bulk fuel storage operations on US Air Force (USAF) installations at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam; Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan; Misawa Air Base, Misawa City, Japan; and Osan Air Base, South Korea.
Agility DGS is the majority shareholder in AFH Fuel Services, which also includes Ferguson-Williams and Hammer.
DESC, a unit of the Defense Logistics Agency, purchases and manages energy supplies for the Department of Defense.
AFH Fuels Services won three European fuel-management storage contracts worth $7.7 million over five years in June. Those awards were for Ramstein Air Base, Germany; Lajes Field, Azores, Portugal; and Incirlik Air Base, Turkey.
“The AFH team is already hard at work for the Air Force in Europe and is well prepared to provide premier bulk fuel services to these key Air Force installations in the Pacific,” said Dan Mongeon, president and CEO of Agility DGS. “Agility is committed to providing global support to the Defense Logistics Agency and the DESC.” - TradeArabia News Service
