We have received an order from US Air Force base RAF Mildenhall to supply advanced ground support equipment.
The order includes Cavotec fuel hydrant pits on the apron as well as specialist equipment such as high point vent and low point drain pits. As part of the contract, Cavotec will also supply specialist off apron, rolling cover pits such as test and flush pits and prefabricated tank truck refuelling pits.
Mildenhall is situated in Suffolk, England and became a joint USAF-RAF operation base in 1950. The host unit is the 100th Air Refuelling Wing, which provides in-flight refuelling to US and NATO aircraft. Cavotec also supplies ground support equipment for a number of military bases in the UK, including RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, the largest station of the Royal Air Force.
