GILEP companies can supply all kinds of vehicles for armed forces logistics for fuel, water and chemical products transportation. Specialized trucks for carrying and delivering oil and related products are the bulk of Defence POL logistics. Trucks are often designed to be employed in the tactical area in operations: robustness, autonomy, manoeuverability in rough terrain are key factors of success.
Relying on adequate mobile storage capacities is a key factor in POL maneuver, in operations as well as in the permanent posture of armed forces. Mobile refuellers of various capacities able to operate in hostile areas (rigid or semi-trailers units), containerized storage capacities air-lifted on operations theaters, aircraft refuellers and refuelling carts, hydrant dispersers are on the top of the dedicated GILEP companies catalogs.
EQUIPMENT & DISTRIBUTION
In Defence POL logistics, complex installations for storage and distribution, as well as trucks and trailers, need to be equipped with efficient, robust and reliable components, such as refuelling skids, filtration units, metering and loading solutions, fuel management systems, turbines, pumps, connectors, dry break couplings, filling nozzles,… . Security of operators, protection of environment, accuracy of measurements and speed of implementation are taken in account by the GILEP companies supplying these key equipments.
PRODUCTS / PROTECTION SERVICES & TRANSPORTATION
Defence POL logistics need high quality products: fuel itself, key factor of mobility for vehicles, assault tanks, aircraft and ships; lubricants and greases for various engines and equipments; industrial paintings and coatings for external protection of vehicles and other key Defence assets.
Transportation of the POL equipments and vehicles to and from the operations theaters is also a critical point.
All these challenges are met by the dedicated GILEP companies.
SECURITY & SUSTAINABILITY
High protection of equipments and of the men operating them, ability to last in rough climatic and terrain conditions are strong requirements in the Defence POL logistics, especially on operations theaters. Firefighting equipments, protected or armoured vehicles, hardened equipments (fuel tanks, tires, wheels,..) are needed at any time.
Additionnally, a global logistic support for the military camps on operations theaters is supplied as well as water treatment systems and rapid deployment systems of tents to protect equipments and personal.
The GILEP members dedicated to security and sustainability meet these requirements.
STORAGE & HOSES
Defence POL logistics is mainly based on operating and maintaining ground tanks of various capacities: easily transportable (rubber bladders), more fixed (larger bolted tanks easy to assembly) or permanent (high capacity tanks, mainly on national territory) to deliver fuel and other oil products to the Armed Forces (vehicles, assault tanks, aircraft, ships).
As a necessary complement to these capacities, a various set of hoses are needed as well in the permanent fuel depots as in the forward tactical deployments in land operations and on the logistics Navy ships.
The GILEP companies have a long experience in providing these key equipments.
