Official DPRTE 2021 event sponsor, KBR, has won a $49.5 million contract from the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to sustain and maintain critical automated hydrant fueling systems at Department of Defense facilities worldwide.

KBR will provide program management, preventative and corrective maintenance, testing, design support, training, as well as equipment and site support for these fueling systems, which use digital industrial control systems to safely and efficiently operate.

The company’s efforts will fortify DLA’s Hydrant Fueling Automation Maintenance program, an ongoing initiative to standardise maintenance to increase system reliability and maintainability, reduce long-term maintenance costs, and improve performance and safety. This contract will help boost fuel inventory accountability, improve fuel monitoring, and prevent spills, aligning with KBR’s commitment to create a better, safer and more sustainable world.

The five-year contract includes one base year and four option years. This single award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract has a maximum value of $49.5 million. Work is expected to be performed at 90 locations around the world, and supports the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Air National Guard.

Byron Bright, KBR President, Global Government Solutions, said: “KBR will provide safe and modern engineering and maintenance services to fuel systems in key areas around the globe.

“We are excited to bring our sustainability principles and digitalisation expertise to this ongoing project.”

KBR has supported fuel handling equipment installation and maintenance for the Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic and DLA for 13 years.
