Agility announced today that it won a U.S. Defense Energy Support Center (DESC) contract to handle storage and distribution of more than 1.2 million barrels of jet fuel for the Pacific and Far East.
The DESC contract is worth an estimated $32 million over five years. Tristar Terminals LLC, a joint venture between Agility Defense & Government Services (DGS) and Tristar Transport, will be responsible for the work.
The joint venture recently purchased the Guam Agat Fuel Terminal and will manage and operate the bulk fuel storage facilities there. The Agat terminal stores and ships aviation fuel for the U.S. government and provides bulk fuel services to commercial customers on Guam.
DESC, a unit of the Defense Logistics Agency, purchases and manages energy supplies for the U.S. Department of Defense.
“Tristar Terminals has built a team that the DESC can rely on to provide the efficient and dependable fuel storage and shipping services required to support the U.S. military’s needs in Guam and throughout the Pacific Rim,” said Dan Mongeon, president and CEO of Agility DGS.
Eugene Mayne, CEO of Tristar Transport, said: “This contract award further demonstrates DESC’s confidence in our global capabilities and our ability to offer innovative energy solutions.”
The contract expands Agility DGS’s work on behalf of DESC. Another Agility-led joint venture, AFH Fuel Services, won recent contracts to operate bulk fuel facilities at U.S. Air Force installations in Portugal, Germany, Turkey, Japan, Korea and Guam.
