RAAF Base Darwin - Fuel Farm 7: Development Proposal

With the original controls contractor unable to deliver the system on time to suit the project’s constraints, TopTroniX was brought in towards the end of the Fuel Farm 7 project to provide a fee proposal to:

  • develop the RTU code and SCADA for monitoring and controlling of a new Fuel Farm at RAAF Base Darwin;
  • design the communications infrastructure to be used for the new Fuel Farm;
  • integrate the new Fuel Farm with the existing Fuel Farm at RAAF Base Darwin, allowing for fuel transfers; AND
  • complete the works in an exceptionally tight time-frame.

The farm itself was tasked with providing F34 + FSII fuel on demand, via a pressurised ring-main, to RAAF aircraft.

The outcome of the proposal? Well, as you’ll see in the Projects listing, we won the project and kicked some great goals!
