374 CES and USACE partner to remove abandoned fuel tanks

Headquarters Air Force, Office of the Director of Civil Engineers

In November 2020, Airmen Engineers from the 374 CES at Yokota AB, Japan, worked in partnership with Resident Office personnel and the US Army Corp of Engineers’ Japanese contractor, NIPPO, to remove 16 abandoned fuel tanks at the construction site of a new AFSOC complex on base. The fuel tanks prevented contractors from advancing the project past the excavation phase. In this photo, three bulldozers that are strapped to one fuel tank, haul the tank away to a designated disposal location.
