Airport Jet Fuel Storage Facility
The growth of the Alberta economy triggered an expansion of the terminal facilities at the Edmonton International Airport to keep pace with growing demand and to improve on-airport fuel reserves.
A $4 million two-year project involving the construction of two new 1.8 million litre aboveground storage tanks was undertaken by the Edmonton Fuel Facilities Corporation. The new storage tanks increased the jet fuel reserve from four to ten days. The expanded dyke area also houses storage tanks for gas and diesel as part of a motive fuel station featuring all aboveground piping.
Scope of Services
FSM Group managed the design, construction and commissioning of two new tanks, in addition to the design and implementation of a two-stage dyke expansion.
FSM Group provided procurement services for several other projects underway concurrently at the airport.
