Core Helps Ease New York Traffic w/ Ferry Marina Fueling System
Traffic both aboveground and below in NYC have been an issue for decades, one way the City is combatting this is by adding and upgrading alternate methods of transportation such as utilizing ferries. When building the new ferry fueling station in the Brooklyn Navy Yard with 40,000-gallons of fuel to be stored aboveground on a Pier – the design team knew there was no other option but ConVault.
Core Engineered Solutions provided four 9,978-gallon ConVault tanks with specialty anti-flotation tie-downs and earthquake restraints to prevent any lateral movement and offer the highest level of safety in this critical location. Core-ES provided the tanks with factory-assembled tank top transition sump boxes outfitted with overfill prevention valves, submersible pumps, and control valves; 1,000ft. of 2-inch BRUGG Flexwell-HL piping to transfer product to the dispensers at each of the ferry fueling locations; remote filling stations and a tank gauging system with integrated vacuum-monitoring for the piping system.
