Fuel Storage & Distribution System Replacement for NAVFAC Southwest Desert IPT
APTIM was the general contractor constructing the new fuel storage complex and distribution piping at Naval Air Station (NAS) in Lemoore, California. This project was phased to ensure that flight operations at NAS Lemoore were not impacted and fueling operations were minimally impacted. As part of this scope, APTIM demolished six underground cut and cover jet petroleum Grade 5 (JP 5) bulk fuel storage tanks, five cut and cover operating tanks, and existing truck off-loading equipment. APTIM constructed three 35,000-barrel aboveground jet fuel storage tanks, one hydrant issue pumphouse, two double-sided truck offloading stations, three refueler truck loading stations, one refueler truck parking (2 acres), and two new piping loops from the new pumphouse. Ancillary work included system commissioning, leak detection, product recovery system, piping, cathodic protection, fire protection, automatic tank gauging, utility connections, emergency generators, access roads, security fencing and lighting, LEED BD+C new construction operations building, excavation and disposal of contaminated soil, and asbestos and lead abatement.
