Proper fuel containment is critical to safe refueling operations, especially when crews are working outside an airport environment.  AFTCO’s secondary containment system is a fully enclosed system with 110% capacity.  It safeguards the entire fuel storage in the unlikely event of a fuel tank or supply line rupture.  This system offers peace of mind in ecologically sensitive environments such as national forests or near major water supplies and wetlands.

Traditionally, off-airport refueling means relying on a berm-style containment tarp.  These can weigh up to 3500 pounds, are subject to tearing, and require substantial set-up and take-down time.  AFTCO’s secondary containment system is fast and worry-free, saving you time and money to give you a competitive advantage.
