McElligotts are very proud to announce that 2023 will be a very busy year as we support Australian Government Defence and the United States Force Posture Initiatives to undertake the completion of the internal lining and the external protective coating of 13 Fuel Storage Tanks on 2 separate but related projects in the Northern Territory. Last year we successfully completed 2 tanks as part of the scheduled initiatives projects.

According to Australian Government Defence,

The United States Force Posture Initiatives (USFPI) are an extension of Australia’s existing Defence Alliance with the United States (US). The objectives of the initiatives are to improve the interoperability between Australian and US forces, provide opportunities to engage with partners in the Indo-Pacific, promote regional stability, and better posture both nations to respond to contingencies such as humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations.

McElligotts have an established long-term history in fuel storage tank linings and coatings and are elevated at the opportunity to showcase our capability to Australian government Defence and in support of these critical alliance project initiatives.
