Location: Nellis AFB, Nevada
This hydrant fueling project included a new Pumphouse, with five 125-HP fueling pumps to provide a 2,400-GPM hydrant fueling system. The project also feature two 10,000-barrel fuel storage tanks with concrete containment berms. Additional project elements included nine hydrant fuel pits, 3,500 linear feet of 12-inch fuel distribution piping, a 4,000-gallon product recovery tank, cathodic protection (impressed current) for fuel piping and fuel storage tanks, cathodic protection (galvanic anode) for all other metallic lines and structures, two truck fill stands, a hydrant hose truck checkout station with unloading capabilities, and a 6,700-square-foot canopy shelter.
Nova installed a new carbon steel fuel transfer line from the base bulk storage facility to the new pumphouse, along with utilities to support the Type III Pumphouse, underground electrical distribution and lighting, and a 300Kw electrical generator
Also included were airfield pavement removals and replacement, truck fill stand reinforced pavement, service road pavement, and a new chain-link security fence.
Phasing was required to install the fuel distribution piping on the airfield and on the fuel transfer line. Both were coordinated to minimize disruption to the base fueling operations.
