Double Fuel Tank Removal and Replacement – OC Fuel 247 at Harbour Island Marina

Project Description:

OC Fuel 247 at Harbour Island Marina, a beloved marine fueling station in Ocean City, Maryland, recently overhauled its fueling system. This project had a tight timeline – to finish before the 2022 boating season began.

Our extraordinary project team was able to take on this challenge, including removing and replacing the existing underground diesel and gasoline storage tanks, piping, and fuel lines, and giving new life to this high-volume summer destination.

This project featured more than tight lines but also a very narrow excavation. With an approved easement of 3 feet, our team worked carefully and quickly to ensure the new tanks would have a secure and safe resting place. The original storage tanks, installed in 1982, were removed, and cleanup began. We worked to remove the existing APT lines and dock fuel lines.

Installation day came, and our team found a soggy job site with the excavation site holding water. After quickly pumping the excavation site dry, we installed the new tanks. The two Xerxes by Shawcor fiberglass storage tanks are set quickly. Both tanks feature double-wall insulation that stores gasoline and diesel fuels without the tank becoming corrosive.

Project Highlights:
Removal of 4,000-gallon UST (Gasoline) and 10,000-gallon UST (Diesel) (installation: 1982)
Removal of existing APT lines and installation of new double-wall Franklin Fueling APT lines
Replacement of dock fuel lines
Installation of new 4,000-gallon Xerxes (Gasoline) fiberglass tank and new 10,000-gallon Xerxes (Diesel) fiberglass tank

“Dependability means everything and these guys tell us what they’re going to do and then they do it.”

- Brian, Project Superintendent , Doster Construction

“We put out an RFP to remove our underground fuel storage tanks and build a new fuel site with aboveground storage tanks. Tanks Direct went above and beyond the RFP and included pricing for removal of dirty ground. They offered the best equipment at the best price point and were very transparent throughout the whole process. There was nobody else that came close to offering the same package and value. We ended up doing eleven different sites over four years. Today, Tanks Direct is a one-call stop. If I have a concern, I don’t have to follow up on anything – it’s taken care of almost instantaneously. Tanks Direct have always been very responsive and it’s not common in my experience.”

- Steve Hughes , Trade Shop Supervisor II, M-NCPPC Montgomery Parks
