FIXED WING FUELING SYSTEM & APRON
This project expanded the fuel system for a new airfield refueling apron on a fully operational airfield. This new aircraft hydrant fueling system installation included installing over 5,000 feet of stainless steel and carbon steel return piping, all tying into existing fuel piping installed by Nova under a previously-completed rotary wing hydrant fuels system project. Along with the new piping, over 6,500 cubic yards of PCC concrete were placed for the new airfield pavement, enabling fixed wing aircraft to hot fuel at the eight new pantograph fueling stations at four locations.
Work also included a new fuel operations building adjacent to the new PCC taxiway/apron area. Additional project area features included airfield lighting work and installation and backfill of 18-inch and 24-inch RCP storm drain piping, including a new 900-foot trench drain. Structural concrete work involved forming and pouring two overflow swale structures, a drainage outfall structure, and a trench drain structure.
