REPLACE HYDRANT FUEL SYSTEM
This project replaced two existing Type II hydrant fuel systems with one Type III pressurized system with a minimum pumping capacity of 3,000 gallons-per-minute. The new system included the construction of a pumphouse, filtration, and generator buildings. The existing hydrant fuel distribution system had a mix of steel, fiberglass and aluminum piping, which was replaced with stainless steel piping.
The contract also required the demolition of two aboveground and three underground JP-8 fuel storage tanks, which were replaced with two new 25,000-barrel aboveground tanks. A 2,300-barrel diesel tank was also demolished and replaced with two 714-barrel self-contained aboveground tanks and truck fill stand. Cathodic protection and a leak detection system were installed with the new tanks along with stainless steel distribution lines.
Other new construction included a new fuel recovery system, hydrant outlet pits, a four-stand truck unloading island, and a hydrant servicing vehicle checkout station. Five JP-8 truck fill stands were replaced with five new pantograph truck fill stands.
