Project Description

Bravo Zulu (well done)! This was the resounding praise declared by members of the project team upon completion of the U.S. Navy’s San Clemente Island Fuel Facility renovation and upgrade project, which opened in July 2016.

The project focused on replacing aging fuel storage facilities with cutting-edge modernizations used to support Naval aircraft missions. The renovations were conducted on Navy- owned property located on San Clemente Island in California. The site serves as a live-fire range and research facility, providing tactical training for both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft squadrons assigned to Navy Region Southwest. All work was completed while the site remained operational, issuing in excess of 80,000 gallons of fuel each month for hundreds of Navy, joint service and allied forces aircraft.

Partnering Results

  • Aligned the project team by setting common partnership goals
  • Mitigated environmental impact
  • Completed work without interrupting naval operations, servicing one of the largest naval concentrations in the world
  • Completed the project as a united team, praising everyone involved for a job well done

“To have such a busy fuel facility undergo a construction project of this magnitude—while still meeting all mission requirements in supporting aggressive warfighter training — speaks volumes about the caliber of personnel we have on the job. Everyone involved, from our civil service and military personnel to our trusted contractor partners, has certainly gone above and beyond in ensuring this project resulted in success. I am certain I speak for America’s warfighters when I thank them for their tireless efforts and congratulate them on a job well done.”

– NAVSUP FLC San Diego Commanding Officer Rear Adm. (Select) John Palmer
