FIBA Technologies has secured an order for its tubes to be installed onboard the highly specialized ships which transfer fuel to the US Navy’s fleet while they are operating at sea. The FIBA tubes will be situated within each replenishment ship’s tensioner system to enable a steady at-sea transfer of fuel.
FIBA Sales Director, Chris Finn, comments: “These ships are a vital support to the US Navy’s presence on our oceans. Their key role is to help Navy ships remain operational by transferring fuel to them while at sea. This demands the ability to keep a close control on the fueling system, which is where the tensioners using FIBA tubes come in.
“FIBA is enormously proud to have been contracted to supply these vessels which help support the US Navy.”
