Airport Jet Fuel Hydrant System Expansion
The growth of the Alberta economy triggered an expansion of the terminal facilities at the Edmonton International Airport. An $8.5 million expansion of the jet fuel hydrant system was undertaken to accommodate the continued increase in aircraft movements.
The project consisted of the temporary relocation of five gates, a full build-out of eighteen new aircraft gates, aboveground valve stations, and a jet fuel hydrant system. The aboveground valve stations eliminate the risk and labour concerns of underground vaults. The jet fuel hydrant system is looped to provide redundancy in the event a pipeline section needs to be shut down. An earlier expansion of fuel storage capacity complements this expansion.
Scope of Services
FSM Group managed the construction of new underground piping to accommodate the temporary gates.
FSM Group provided detailed design and long-term system planning of the jet fuel hydrant system to serve the new terminal.
