Fuel Distribution Construction
Aircraft Fueling System Construction
Nova is an expert in constructing systems, including hydrant fuel systems, for fueling and defueling large aircrafts. These systems consist of above- or below-ground fuel storage tanks; housing for sophisticated pumps, control valves and filters; carbon or stainless steel above- or below-ground pipes to distribute fuel to various fueling stands; and the fueling stands themselves. Fueling stands consist of either above-ground loading arms or below-ground metal or fiberglass fuel pits, called “hydrants.” Typically, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers or Naval Facilities Engineering Command manages the construction of these systems for the U.S. Air Force..
