Fuel Oil System Upgrade
Project Type: General Contractor
Location: Gresham, OR
Date: March 2017
Scope of Work
SiTESPAN upgraded the existing fuel delivery system for the emergency generator system.
SiTESPAN was engaged by one of our clients to complete upgrades on a fuel oil system at one of their main business centers. The existing fuel system consisted of two 30,000 gallon fuel tanks with a single, submersible pump in each tank that fed two gravity discharge day tanks supplying (4) 2 megawatt emergency generators with fuel. The upgrades to this system included the installation of redundant submersible pumps in each fuel tank, the installation of (3) double walled, 200-gallon day tanks, a fuel polishing system, new fuel level monitoring system and a complete new master control system with redundant controllers tied into the owners existing BAS system, providing monitoring capability from the main control room. The system is programmed to automatically transfer from tank to tank and to operate multiple fuel pumps if required.
