Case Studies

Naval Air Station, Patuxent River

In the Naval Air Station Patuxent River, DGC International supplied a fleet of state-of-the-art aircraft refueling vehicles.

With our deep knowledge of logistics and extensive network of fuel providers throughout the world, we are always able to keep military aircraft properly fueled. In the Naval Air Station in Patuxent River, Maryland, the Navy test pilots, among the best in the world, fly planes that have yet to be deployed on missions. The newest military planes in the Navy’s arsenal are rigorously tested. DGC International’s aircraft refueling trucks were equipped with unique specifications to meet the high demand needs of Naval aircraft.

We provide a wide range of high-quality military and commercial grade fuels; including JP8/F34, TS1, JP5/F44, F76, DF2/F54, AVGAS/F18, Jet A1/F35, Jet A, and JP4/F40. We also have a deployable fuel additive injection capability, which is conducted with specialized machinery that is owned and operated by DGC International.

Our logistics solutions and supply chain support play a major role to ensure military operations have the correct fuel, even on short notice, in remote and austere locations. Our direct delivery network is supported by automated information and fuel card and block chain services. This allows deliveries to be tracked in real-time, and for clients to know in advance when deliveries are taking place.

In the Naval Air Station Patuxent River, DGC International supplied a fleet of state-of-the-art aircraft refueling vehicles. Our refuelers are the new standard of the navy. They have the latest technology to make possible the highest demand on the runway for the navy. Our fleet also boasts a special refueler to fuel the F35 Lighting II, the latest multirole stealth fighter of the U.S. and our allies. The aircraft has the special requirement of chilled fuel, which is run throughout the aircraft to cool its systems during take-off. Our special refueler sticks out on the flight line due to the layer of white paint on the outside of the tank; this serves to keep the fuel at a low temperature to meet the need of chilled fuel. DGC International Aircraft refueling vehicles can be seen in the flight lines of Erbil, Iraq and Baghdad, Iraq. DGC International has long been delivering fuel to the locations of Erbil, Baghdad, and more in support of the US and our allies in Iraq.

Our customer service has consistently been rated excellent by our customers, of all nations. We can also quickly and efficiently re-position our assets as mission requirements dictate. Our senior-level planners can create strategic level fuel management plans that span multiple continents. They are equally skilled at building out tactical fuel distribution plans. Currently, DGC International has fuel operators serving in the Middle East, Central Asia, the Horn of Africa, and the Americas. We also run a Level A fuel testing laboratory in Afghanistan providing support to the entire region, so military units can be serviced with top-quality fuel reliability, no matter where they are stationed. Our team offers aircraft refueling support services at commercial and other fixed facility airfields on a 24/7/365 basis. We provide competitive pricing that allows our clients to maximize their resources. Since we are trained on both Joint Inspection Group standards and American Society for Testing and Materials standards, we ensure that the aviation fuel we deliver is of the highest quality.
