Notes
Survey number HABS HI-412
Building/structure dates: 1942 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: Facility No. 60 is a diesel fuel purification plant that includes a pumphouse, eight fuel tanks (later assigned Facility Nos. 1216 to 1223), and the tunnels that connect them. This fuel complex was associated with the Submarine Base functions and the expansion of fueling facilities during WWII. There was a great need for clean diesel fuel for submarines during the war as fuel with moisture for particulates could hinder a submarine's efficiency and lead to substantial maintenance problems. This plant is a contributing resource to the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark.
