Continuing our professional relationship with IGY, Petroleum Marine was contracted to install a high-speed fueling facility at this new Mega Yacht Marina.

  • Provide Engineered drawings with detail for client review including job costing.
  • Design a state-of-the-art fuel delivery system to meet the client’s site-specific GPM requirements.
  • Provide flow calculations for (12) designated fueling points on the new fuel dock and for in slip fueling.
  • The marina layout includes; 50 Superyacht Berths 50 Total Berths
  • Max Length: 550′ (167m)
  • Max Draft: 27′ (8.2m)
  • Max Beam: No Restrictions

Phase I: Over the water

Petroleum Marine Construction designed and installed (12) hydrant fueling positions within the floating dock system. Hydrants are installed within secondary containment using PCI fiberglass watertight sumps The Hydrant connections are installed using OPW Kamvalock fittings and stainless steel ball valves. Within the Megayacht dock system, PMC installed over 14000 ft of 3” UV stable double-wall electrofusion pipe and fittings.

Phase II – Landside

Fueling Project consists of the installation of (2) 20,000-gallon double-wall storage tanks for diesel and one (1) 6,000-gallon double wall storage tank for gasoline. The diesel delivery system will consist of (4) 5hp 3- phase Fe Petro submersible pumps delivering fuel to the (12) hydrants at 100gpm 4” double wall Nupi piping will deliver the diesel fuel and 2” double wall Nupi will deliver the gasoline from landside to over the water. Gasoline will consist of a standard speed delivery system using (1) 2hp Fe Petro submersible pump. This operation is designed for Tender fueling.

Twelve in slip fuel positions will enable all Mega Yachts to fuel while berthed. A custom stainless steel fuel wagon w/ 3” intake hose will be connected at the fueling location closest to the vessel. The connection is to be made to the 3” Kamvalok coupler located within the fiberglass sumps under the dock decking. The fuel wagon will consist of 100 ft of lightweight 2” discharge hose an LC meter and an additional hose reel of 2” x 100 ft hose will be available as required. The operation will be run from a handheld on/off switch which will act in conjunction with all installed E-stops. All fuel system components will be monitored by a state-of-the-art electronic compliance system.

All work should conform to the latest edition of the National Electrical Code, local ordinances, regulations, and state laws. Electrical work will allow a working fuel system to meet compliance and the client’s completed goals. Electrical equipment & wiring located within Hazardous (Class I, Div. I & II) areas of fuel pumps and dispensers shall comply with the provisions of N.E.C Article 501 & 514.

When completed, the fuel system will outperform the capabilities of any fuel system in the SE United States.
