  2. S.E.M.P.E.R. PROGRAM INTRODUCTION SEMPER stands for Service Extended Maintenance Program and Equipment Repair and serves military and privatized operations at petroleum storage and distribution systems worldwide. SEMPER significantly increases the life-span of existing fuel systems and components. SEMPER provides on-demand readiness on both a national and international scale. The dual-use training of our technicians on technologies of military and commercial equipment is integrated throughout SEMPER. Not only does SEMPER provide experienced repair services on existing fuel equipment, SEMPER technicians can provide refreshment training and calibration services as well. With newly privatized POL / LFM programs becoming more of a norm, repair and training is becoming crucial to operational readiness. SEMPER opens options for Military Joint Services capability over all ground, aviation, and marine facilities or bases. System longevity is increased when all equipment is calibrated, tuned, and running in peak operational condition. “Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business”

  3. DISCIPLINES AND LOGISTICS Since SEMPER was derived from four unique specialties from the fuels infrastructure industry, we have the capability to satisfy a number of repair and tune-up needs across a wide variety of fuel handling systems. Those four entities are: Air Force Liquid Fuels Maintenance Veteran Air Force POL Veteran Military Fuel Systems Controls Company Military Fuel System Parts and Equipment Supplier This union has created one of the most capable, expedient, and competitive service companies in existence. The following pages will show services offered. Our website shows the most current experience and any of the listed locations can provide testimony that SEMPER provided outstanding service.

  4. CORE CONCEPT SEMPER’s core competency is fuel system maintenance. The original ideas of constant pressure hydrant system tune-ups and recurring maintenance programs are our core concepts and capabilities. A dire need from the military fuels career field was a motivating factor to move forward to satisfy this need. Although resident Liquid Fuels Maintenance crews are quite capable, their career fields have recently been plagued with deployments, personnel cuts, multi-tasking, and system malfunctions beyond their capabilities. SEMPER has completely satisfied the call to make up that difference. We stand ready to respond short notice to equipment malfunctions and maintenance programs both mechanical and controls, so the war fighter can continue its mission without interruption. SEMPER has a history of consistent competitive pricing as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business.

  5. PROGRAM BENEFITS: SPEED and PRICE! The SEMPER Program is managed under a creative and flexible technical architecture that shares test equipment, facilities and personnel. The customer needs to contact only one provider, yet all services, regardless as to the region, are available to the customers’ demands. This integrated service platform can reduce costs in multiple contract administration, multiple source qualification processes and the need for the customer to maintain multiple stocks of repair parts inventory. A lean logistics effort by SEMPER will shrink the customers’ logistics ‘footprint’ while maintaining sustainable capabilities. Requirements for base-level service or repair personnel, test equipment and test facilities are correspondingly reduced. The anxiety of dependence on newly privatized personnel at fuel depots and over-taxed Liquid Fuel Maintenance personnel can be reduced if supported by SEMPER. This will save tax dollars, reduce military spending and provide top rated technicians to support petroleum storage and distribution responsibilities with military services around the world. SEMPER’S supplier is a fully authorized manufacturer distributor for either pumps, control valves, flow meters and instrumentation. Strategic locations of warehousing, test equipment and volumetric flow meter calibration provers in the USA and in Dubai support the regions they serve.

  9. Fuel System Tune-ups Complex hydrant refueling systems cannot go without at least annual calibration checks and adjustment. Through daily use, these systems experience drift of original settings, both mechanically and electronically. Thus bringing their operation out of its original, efficient state. Complaints of operating pressure loss, idle pressure loss, and timing of lead and lag pump starts are just a few things that happen when these system go without care for an extended period. We have developed a complete sample statement of work for the customer to see exactly what we do during a full tune-up. Sample Statement of Work Puropose This sample Statement of Work (SOW) was devised to aid prospective customers in identifying and defining requirements of a full tune-up of their automated or mechanical fueling system. Although this SOW applies mainly to constant pressure hydrant fueling systems, it covers many aspects of other fuel handling systems such as a mechanical storage system. The tune-up consists mainly of two parts; Mechanical and Controls. Scope of Work Using one controls specialist and one mechanical specialist, contractor will test and calibrate controls, instrumentation, and applicable mechanical equipment for Type II, III, IV, and V Hydrant Fueling Systems. Only minor repairs of equipment during this tune-up fall under this scope of work as long as the repair does not detract from the timeline of the tune-up. Repairs above and beyond minor repair will be communicated to a government representative and contracted separately from this SOW.

  10. Description of Services Contractor shall perform inspection, testing and calibration of all controls, instrumentation, control valves, and equipment for base fueling systems including ancillary equipment used. Excluded are testing/inspection of tanks, inventory systems, piping/tank cathodic protection systems, oil water separators and annual meter proving. Specific components and duties are as listed in Appendix 1 and attachments. Intent of this contract is to provide for and ensure the safe, effective, and continuous operation of the referenced fueling system. Contractor shall comply with all applicable federal, state, local laws and regulations, and the Base Hazardous Waste Management Plan. The contractor shall perform its work in accordance with commercial industry standards and as indicated by Department of Defense standards. Note: These services are to supplement the normal activities of the localized maintenance activity. Scheduling Although a tune-up can be performed on a one-time basis, scheduling of annual visits are strongly encouraged to maintain the health and efficient operation of microprocessor controlled fueling systems. Recurring visits are to be a result of consultation with base personnel and must allow for negotiation of annual dates to accommodate for potential conflicts with contractor’s other obligations. Base/Activity Support The base or activity representative shall provide base or DOD passes for contractor access to systems and/or required escorts for secured areas. Base maintenance personnel will be required to assist the contractor in system testing and air elimination and provide data or history on problems experienced. In addition, system as-built data will be made available to aid in inspection/calibration/testing of systems and components. Upon request of the contractor, any fuel evacuation from equipment or piping for the purpose of repairs shall be done by base personnel. Operators shall be responsible for providing equipment for the purpose of testing system dispensing components. Contractor, in performance of inspection, calibration, and testing, shall work with the operators to minimize system downtime in order to maintain base mission readiness.

  11. Records The contractor shall maintain records of services in performance of this content. The records will be used to create a report, which shall include identification of component, location, maintenance work performed, condition of component, date of inspection/calibration, statement of repairs needed, if any, with an estimated cost of repairs. Reports shall be submitted within 30 days after the tune-up visit. If an urgent repair situation arises during the tune-up, contractor will immediately report to the authorized government representative on-site at the time of discovery for authorization or advisement of repairs. Government Furnished Property There is no government furnished property provided in the contract. Quality Control The contractor shall utilize commercial quality control procedures. The records of Tune-up shall be kept and made available to the government throughout the contract performance period. Performance of Services, During Crisis as Declared by the National Command Authority or Applicable Combatant Commander The contractor shall provide services outlined in the contract. However, base workload may significantly increase during wartime contingencies, and response times could be impacted. Government representatives will advise contractor of any work stoppage as it pertains to potential interference with DoD mission objectives. Security Requirements The contractor shall make available personnel data for background checks if required for clearance into secured areas. Qualifications The contractor must have experience as a fuels “system supplier” representative as defined by the DOD standards for pressurized hydrant fueling systems – Type III specification.

In-House Parts Support Field technicians are supported by strategically located warehouse facilities with a current inventory of repair parts.

  18. Flow Meter Calibration & Proving SEMPER can provide reliable meter proving services at competitive prices. 200-gallon and 1500-gallon mobile volumetric proving trucks are available. Ground Fuels Ground fuel repair and calibration for mogas, diesel and bio fuel systems. Will address pumps, dispensers, filtration, tank integrity, gauging and automation controls. Repairs span equipment concerns from the fuel nozzle to the inventory management system.

  19. Additive Injection Since SEMPER is versed in so many aspects of fuel system repair, why not add additive injection to the list. Trained and certified the hard way, our proficiency came from places like PSAB in Saudi Arabia when the US Forces had to make JP-8 from Jet-A1in the 1990s. Several Hammonds injectors had to be kept running in the austere desert environment or aircraft didn’t fly. Our current technicians were there learning the hard way. They have kept abreast of the latest products and can provide the customer with whatever they need in this area.

  20. Refresher Training Refresher training is second nature to our technicians. With their prior military background, they are no stranger to the training process and lesson plan creation. See our sample lesson plans later in this booklet.
