Published 20th September 2022

Final preparations are complete after months of planning and organisation. A Team from FSS, including seven Engineers is departing for the Falklands tomorrow 21st September.

Their mission during the 6 month assignment will be to focus on fuel line improvements and tank inspections. These include tank bottom valve changes, corrosion protection along the cross-country pipeline from the beach head to RAF Mount Pleasant, and EEMUA 159 on the tanks at the PSD.

The team will fly from RAF Brize Norton on a 3-month deployment returning to the UK for the Christmas break. Then they return for a further 3 months.

Next on the agenda for the team will be assignments in the Ascension Islands, Singapore and Cyprus.

Those travelling to The Falklands include Steven Snape, Nino Langton, Darren Weldon, Kieran Wilson, Ryan Prendergast, Michael Spence and Matthew Keeton
