August 21, 2017–  Fort Lauderdale, Florida – Petroleum Marine Construction, LLC announces their major development for the USCG Tybee Island, S.C.

Petroleum Marine Construction, LLC   accepted the challenging project after being awarded the highly sought-after bid to completely rehabilitate their marina fuel distribution system.

For this assignment, the company was required to perform a closure of the existing marina fuel facility as well as to develop a brand new marina fuel distribution system under specific USCG guidelines. Additional Guidelines that were used for this project were; NFPA and PEI RP/1000.

This incredible undertaking began as fuel was purged from existing piping and existing dispensers.

The entire existing over the water fuel distribution system was removed and properly disposed of offsite.

In addition, onshore all above ground storage tank appurtenances were removed and replaced with new compliant equipment

The new installation included above ground stainless steel piping from tank to transitioning to Tricon double wall piping over the water.

Stainless Steel pipe hangers were installed at 5ft intervals.  All fuel delivery components are installed per the USCG and NFPA 30A requirements.

The Fuel delivery system to USCG Vessels is designed with the installation of Pump Measure Control Marine USCG dispensers

Two (2) diesel Pump Measure Control Model # CG-520MA Marine dispensers were installed on the main pier.

One (1) gasoline Pump Measure Control Model # CG-515MA Marine dispensers were installed on the main pier.

Per the contract, a brand new electrical distribution system was installed for activation and dispensing fuel.  After the project is completed, the USCG Tybee Island can boast that they now have a site-specific, compliant, and efficient fuel distribution system.
