Town of Holden DPW Fuel Island and Canopy

Town of Holden DPW Fuel Island and Canopy

CommTank won a bid to install two (2) 10,000-gallon above-ground fuel tanks and two (2) shelf-mounted fuel dispensers at the Town of Holden’s DPW facility. The project included the construction of a fuel island and fuel canopy. Fire suppression was installed in accordance with current codes. Footings for each canopy pedestal and subgrade drainage were installed prior to the aboveground tank pads being poured. The first aboveground tank was configured for gasoline storage and dispensing while the second tank provided diesel fuel dispensing. A fuel management system was installed and connected to the town's servers so that fleet access to the fuel dispensing stations could be controlled from a central location.

Aboveground Fuel Tank Installation Steps:

  • Day 1: Set tanks and stairs, ground bond tanks, and anchor stairs and tanks
  • Day 2-3: Place dispensers, hoses, nozzles, shear valves, mount brackets, fire extinguishers, e-stop, and fire pull stations at four locations on the tanks. 2 dispensers per tank. Every dispenser location has a fire extinguisher, e-stop, and fire pull. GC electrician is responsible for wiring and conduits.
  • Day 4-5: Place in submersibles, solenoids, safety, pressure relief, and ball valves. Plumb to dispensers 1 ½” lines. Install submersible controller, wire to FuelMaster, dispensers, and submersibles. GC electrician is responsible for wiring and conduits.
  • Day 6-7: Install FuelMaster pedestal and wire to dispensers, Veeder-Root, and submersibles. We are responsible for low-voltage wiring into GC electrician-provided conduits. GC electrician is responsible for all other wiring and conduits.
  • Day 8-9: Install probes, probe risers, float kits, leak sensors, and adapters, caps, Veeder-Root panel, and wire up. The overfill alarms will be installed and wired up when the canopy goes up because they get mounted on the columns near the fill buckets. GC electrician is responsible for the wiring and conduits. We would provide and install the probe and sensor wiring and connect to the Veeder-Root panel and sensor/probes with seal kits.
  • Day 10-11: Install tank fill buckets, adaptors, (gas tank gets EVR vent, EVR drop tube, EVR rotatable adaptors, and EVR caps), vent risers and caps, emergency vents, no plastic caps or plugs to remain on the tank.
  • Day 12: Paint any new piping and install signs (overfill, no smoking, …).
  • Day 13-14: Once the customer has a delivery of fuel, start-up, and prime tank systems.
  • Day 15: Correct any hit list items demobilize and clear the work site.
