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.
