Design / Build
Brief Project Description
This project was a negotiated, design/build project awarded to design and construct a new jet fuel storage complex for the Air Mobility Command at Scott AFB, Illinois. The contract included sitework, a new 3,500 bbl aboveground storage tanks per API 653, new pumphouse and control building and associated piping. The system includes two 600 gpm pumps for truck loading and two 300 gpm pumps for unloading, inbound and outbound filtration, primary and secondary power distribution systems, and emergency power generation and controls.
A new pre-engineered metal building pumphouse was erected containing fuel pumps, issue and receipt filter systems, 2 new truck unloading stations, 1 truck fillstand. Electrical work included electrical power, lighting and controls, new 15 kW underground electrical service, a 125 kW emergency generator system, installation of cathodic protection and leak detection for the tank and underground piping systems. Related work included a concrete lined containment dike, a drainage system with oil/water separators and a pump station, environmental abatement of contaminated soils, flexible membrane liner installation, all associated underground and aboveground fuel piping systems, pre-stressed concrete piling and concrete foundation for the new tank and new pumphouse, and interior and exterior tank coatings.
Rehabilitation of two existing 5,000 bbl aboveground jet fuel tanks consisted of installing a new elevated tank floor complete with flexible membrane liner, telltale piping, new welded-steel floor plates, new fill and withdrawal lines, new shell manholes, new gauging wells, new level alarms and shut-offs. The tank interiors and effected exterior areas were recoated. All work was done per API standards to bring the tanks into compliance.
