Defence Estates & Babcock DynCorp
Location & Overview
As part of the decommissioning of this former WW2 military airbase situated to the east of Ipswich, Defence Estates’ objective was to remove fuel tanks, pipelines & associated buildings during their ongoing remediation scheme to facilitate future development. The majority of the 42 tanks were underground, their volumes ranging from 300 to 1 million gallons. Much of the site was overgrown, with the tanks being covered by established woodland.
