Fuel Tank Construction Project Out to Bid

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Comment | More

The Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority will accept sealed bids Sept. 1, 2010, for the construction of a new, 550,000-gallon-capacity, jet-fuel tank at a gas turbine facility.  The welded-steel tank, 50 feet in diameter and 53 feet high, will be enclosed within a welded-steel outer containment tank 60 feet in diameter and 45 feet high. 
 
The interior floor surfaces and bottom two feet of walls will be abrasive-blast-cleaned to a White Metal finish (SSPC-SP 5) and coated with a glass-reinforced epoxy system. The exterior tank surfaces will be abrasive-blast-cleaned to a Commercial finish (SSPC-SP 6) and coated with an epoxy primer and two coats of acrylic high-solids polyurethane finish. The coatings work requires SSPC-QP 1 certification.
 
The project also includes cleaning, decommissioning, and possibly demolishing an existing 5.5 MG steel fuel tank with exterior lead-bearing coatings.
