The 673d Logistics Readiness Squadron tested a tanker truck offload facility at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, July 25, 2019.
The purpose of this facility is to provide a secondary means to receive JP-8 (aircraft fuel) in the event JBER’s fuel pipeline is out of service due to maintenance, damage or natural disaster.
Prior to 2018, JBER had only one means to receive fuel and a pipeline from the Port of Alaska to JBER.
