Replacement of Bulk Fuel Storage Tank
Replacement of Bulk Fuel Storage Tank, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
LGC completed the construction of a field-erected 63,000-bbl welded steel JP-5 fuel storage tank. The tank was installed atop a raised, thickened concrete ring wall with multiple access platforms and tank manways, multiple stilling wells for tank gauging, and complete interior and exterior coatings meeting MIL-spec paint system requirements per UFGS 099713.15 and 099713.27. Secondary containment was provided by a concrete perimeter wall with a geotextile liner surround and tank and site water and drainage lines. A new concrete access road was constructed around the perimeter for regular maintenance.
