  3. 3. SupplyLine Fuels Team Plans Super Hornet Biofuels Flight Test By Robert Kaper, Naval Air Systems Command The Naval Air Systems Command fuels team is gearing up for biofuels flight tests in an F/A-18 Super Hornet at Patuxent River, Md., by next spring or summer, according to NAVAIR’s fuel expert. Rick Kamin, Navy fuels lead, explained that before “biofueling" the plane, the team will first conduct laboratory and rig tests at Pax River, followed by static engine tests with the Super Hornet’s F414 engine on a test stand at the Lynn, Mass., facility of manufacturer General Electric. The static tests will take place probably in the December-January time frame,” Kamin said. The NAVAIR fuels team is also getting ready to kick off a similar effort to test and certify biofuels for use on ships. The upcoming tests are part of a larger effort to test and cer- tify promising biofuels in support of the Navy’s energy strategy to enhance energy security and environmental stewardship, in- maritime environment. cluding reducing greenhouse gas emissions. For the upcoming static and flight tests, the biofuels will be “Our major goal is a drop-in replacement” for the Navy’s mixed in a 50-50 blend with conventional petroleum-derived jet petroleum-based fuels, Kamin said. “The field won't know the fuel to provide the necessary specification properties.

Photo by Bill Pointer, FISC Norfolk Once the ship arrived at Pier 7, preparations of the quay wall by FISC Norfolk’s Ocean Terminal stevedores allowed the ship to lower its roll-on/roll-off ramp to allow access to the ship’s storage area. The ship also had to ballast the ship down 3 feet so the ramp would align properly to the quay wall. In 100+ degree weather, the stevedores took great care in building the wooden approach to the ship’s loading ramp to prevent a low hanging radar done on the V-22 aircrafts from hitting the ramp. This was the first time a V- 22 has been loaded on any cargo vessel and by ever measurement; this test was a resounding success. On hand to conduct and witness the test were the V-22's crew, USMC personnel (headed by Lt Col Richard Sinese, USMC), CAPE RACE's crew (headed by Vessel Master Mr. Patrick Wright), aircraft handling personnel from Chamber's Field, Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Surface Deployment and Distribution Command's Transportation Engineering Agency (SDDCTEA), Naval Station Norfolk Security, Naval Station Norfolk Port Operations, Cargo Handling Battalion 11, and FISC Nor- folk’s Ocean Terminal personnel.

  6. 6. SupplyLine FISC Norfolk’s Oil Recycling and Re-use Program Lean and Green By Lt. Cmdr. Dave Roddy, SC, USN nue.

One program that has been lean and green from as far back as the 1950's is the Craney Island oil recycling and re-use pro- gram. Located in Portsmouth, Virginia on picturesque Craney Island, Craney Island Defense Fuel Support Point (DFSP) is home to the largest fuel reclamation operation in the Department of Defense. Although the program has been in place for over 50 years, this is no static program. Over the past five years, Craney Island's thriving operation has enjoyed a 71% growth in sales of their premier reclaimed product- Fuel Oil, Reclaimed (FOR).

The product is sam- pled and tested periodically until meeting the FOR specification. Once the product meets proper fuel specifications, it is stored in Craney Island storage tanks until pur- chased by a customer, such as PWC Utilities. The FOR is then transported to Naval Station Norfolk via one of Craney Island's organic YON fuel barges, where it is burned at a steam plant for power generation. The Product The FOR specification is approved for use by the Department of the Navy, and is available for use by all Departments and Agencies of the DoD. FOR is a product of a mixture of a variety of oils, and is subject to regulation by 40 CFR 266, Sub-part E.

  9. 9. SupplyLine Top 10 Mistakes to Avoid when Moving Household Goods Moving. It’s an accepted fact of life if you are a Sailor or military family member. The moving process can be stressful. This is particularly true the first few times you move. The mili- tary has many rules, restrictions, and requirements that can be confusing. Worse yet, if you make a mistake it can end up cost- ing you money out of your paycheck. So, what are the most common mistakes and how can you avoid them? Naval Supply Systems Command’s Navy Family Support Household Goods team members put their more than 100 years of experience together to develop these simple rules: Exceeding the Maximum Weight Allowance Service members are limited to a set amount of weight based upon their military rank and dependent status. This limit is set in law by Congress. If a member exceeds his allowed weight, the Navy will pay the mover on behalf of the member, but will then initi- ate collection action from the member. “Navy auditors located in Norfolk, Va., review every move, so if someone should ex- ceed the authorized weight allowance, a bill will eventually come his way. Dispose of worn out and unnecessary items be- fore the move to avoid wasteful packing, moving, or storage expenses which increase the cost of the move. If you feel you are close to your authorized weight limit, request a re-weigh of the shipment prior to delivery at destination. The Government will pay on the lower of the two certified weights and subse- quently the member will be charged based on the lower weight,” said Kermit Horn, Navy Household Goods Traffic Management Specialist. Committing Fraud It may sound harsh, but it is a fact of life that some people will always be tempted to try to beat the sys- tem. Navy Household Goods Audit Division audits 100 percent of all personally procured moves, according to Navy Household Goods Director Frank Piacine. “Cases of fraud detected by the audit team are reported to the Naval Criminal Investigation Ser- spouse's professional equipment.

Beware. The ‘estimated’ payment on the Form DD2278 (Application for Do-It-Yourself Move and Counseling Checklist) is based upon that ‘estimated’ weight. So, if you give a higher weight estimate than you actually move, you may very well end up owing money back,” Piacine said. Not Understanding Full Replacement Value Insurance Customers can settle disputes over lost/destroyed household goods directly with the moving company for Full Replacement Value (FRV). “As a general rule, the Transportation Service Provider (TSP) will repair, or pay you for the repair of damaged items, or replace, or pay you for the replacement of items lost or destroyed beyond economical repair. FRV also covers your items placed in Storage-in-Transit (SIT) as well as Non- Temporary Storage (NTS). There are limits to the TSPs liability for loss or damage to personal property: In order to obtain FRV, claims must be filed directly with the TSP, not the Military Claims Offices (MCO),” said Navy Household Goods Traffic Management Specialist Richard McIntire. “FRV claims must be filed within nine months. If your claim is filed directly with the TSP within nine (9) months of delivery, the TSP’s liability on each household goods shipment is a minimum of $5,000 per tion, check it out with the local Personal Property Office before shipment, or a maximum of $4.00 times either the net weight of making any transportation commitments." the household goods shipment or the gross weight of the interna- Failing to Update Your Non-Temporary Storage Ac- tional unaccompanied baggage (IUB) shipment, in pounds, not count “Active Duty Service members and retirees who place to exceed $50,000.
