Project Overview

Fuel is vital to the conduct of all operations and ‘raise, train and sustain’ activities. The current deployable capability has obsolescence issues which are increasingly impacting materiel availability. JNT8190 will address this issue and provide a modern, integrated and sustainable capability.

Defence needs a semi-permanent means to meet the capability requirement for distribution, storage and supply of bulk fuels to a deployed force in accordance with an operational requirement. The capability must be robust, scalable and rapidly deployable by air, land or sea. It must also be operable within current and proposed future operating frameworks. This system is referred to as the DBFD System.

Joint Project 8190 (JNT8190) – Deployable Bulk Fuel Distribution (DBFD) seeks to provide the Australian Defence Force (ADF) with a modern, integrated DBFD capability. The capability will enable the distribution, storage and supply of bulk amounts of fuel, in order to support deployed joint force and Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR) operations.

Within the Project Scope there are seven system capability elements:

  • Command Centre;
  • Fuel Storage;
  • Fuel Distribution;
  • Fuel Dispensing;
  • Fuel Monitoring
  • Environmental Management
