REPLACE FUEL STORAGE & LOAD FACILITIES
This project consisted of replacing the fuel storage and loading facilities and included the pump house, three jet fuel tanks, two JP-8 truck off-load stations, four JP-8 fillstands, the ground fuel dispensing station, four 12,000-gallon vaulted tanks, piping, ground fuel off-load and fillstand, site demolition, grading, pavement, curb and gutter, utilities, control systems, communications, area lighting, fencing and gates, lightning protection, and generator setup.
The tank bottoms of two large fuel storage tanks were replaced by tank bottoms with leak detection. The existing fillstands, off-load area, and distribution piping to the tanks were demolished. Additional work included excavation, stockpiling, handling of 800 tons of petroleum contaminated soil, and disposal that included final testing.
The new facility handles several types of fuel; JP-8 aircraft fuel, diesel, and gasoline. A new 3,750-square-foot control and pump house building was constructed to manage the fueling system. Site-work included construction of a concrete ramp for vehicles, valve pits, and four 12,000 gallon above-ground storage tanks.
