Petroleum Bulk Storage & Dispensing Design
CORE was selected by Red Hook Terminals LLC to complete designs
for both gasoline and diesel aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) and
dispensing systems at the Red Hook Container Terminal in Brooklyn,
New York. The Container Terminal is owned by the Port Authority of
New York and New Jersey, but operated by Red Hook Terminals LLC.
The project included a pre-design Site inspection, assessment of the
facility’s gasoline and diesel needs, and preparation of design drawings
and specifications following the Port Authority specifications.
CORE performed reviews of both New York City Codes and
Regulations and the Port Authority specifications regarding Petroleum
Bulk Storage, fire safety, and flood zones. Best Management Practices
(BMPs) consistent with industry-developed practices were employed to
develop a comprehensive site-specific solution. The design included the
- NYC UL-approved vaulted aboveground storage tanks and
- New York City Codes and Regulation notes for construction, fuel
systems, and fire suppression systems
- Fire Suppression System detail
- Electrical Systems detail
- FEMA Flood Zone Map and flood restraints details and Parts/Equipment List
In addition to the system design, CORE provided bid specifications
and drawings for Red Hook Terminals to utilize in bid procurement.
Successful bid specifications and drawings required CORE’s continued
interaction with both Red Hook and the Port Authority to ensure all
necessary requirements were met.
