Jet Fuel Storage Tanks at RAAF Base Tindal, Australia
This project, a joint venture with Nova’s Australian sister company Nacap, includes constructing two 25,000-barrel cut-and-cover bulk fuel storage tanks to accommodate US mission aircraft training at Royal Australian Air Force Base (RAAF) Tindal in Australia’s remote Northern Territory. The fuel work consists of constructing an aircraft liquid fuel truck fillstand, fuel stand unloading, pumphouses, and a filter building. The project utilizes local materials when cost-effective and includes all utilities, automatic tank gauging systems, site improvements, pavements, communications infrastructure, backup generator, and other work necessary to provide complete and usable facilities.
Electrical aspects of the project include medium/low voltage Class 1 Division 1 & Division 2 environments for power, lighting, instrumentation, fire protection, and cathodic protection. Installation of a standby generator and extensive testing and commissioning of the new fuel and power systems is also included.
