OFFL (Orlando Fuel Facilities Corporation) – an Airline Consortium
Orlando International Airport (MCO)
Currier & Company, Inc.
Currier & Company was selected to complete multiple projects at the in-service MCO Fuel Facility including 1) due diligence evaluations including code compliance analysis, risk management assessment, best practices comparisons and operational improvements, 2) project programming including options, alternative approaches, and negotiations with stakeholders/code officials, 3) prime design services for the $8.5 million project, and 4) construction follow-on including resident engineering, fuel supply logistics management, and commissioning.
The project demanded uninterrupted fuel system operations, so precise phasing of construction was a project imperative. Bid documents were customized to suit competitive bidding while allowing early purchases of new systems and services including a Hansa Leak Detection system, mobile fire protection equipment, and specialized contracting services.
New scope was added in 2016 and another CP project is pending.
Major improvements included:
A new 1600 square foot operations building including a new control system, user interface, control room, and specialized fire protection system connected to an uninterrupted power supply/full generator back-up. A new fixed fire suppression system with factory fabricated proportioning skid to protect critical fuel supply system power and controls, pumping and filtration infrastructure and suction/supply manifolds. A new facility-wide IR3 Fire Recognition system with integrated CCTV capability for operator monitoring, early fire detection, and video recording was included. A new first responder loop road was provided along the site perimeter and a new fire main and fire hydrants were placed in strategic areas of the facility to meet firefighting water demands. Primary power was re-routed below ground. Construction of a new Hansa Leak Detection system employing 50 new DBB isolation valves for U/G piping evaluations (Florida compliant) was managed to minimize operational impacts. New compliant dike cell liners to suit NFPA 30 compliant cell arrangements, revised dike drainage/containment infrastructure and selected repairs to existing lining systems were all provided. To support early detection, additional temperature and vibration sensors were installed on existing fuel system pumps. A new emergency fuel shut-off (EFSO) system was designed and integrated into the controls.A facility lightning protection system and other improvements were included since the project came in under budget. The project was completed about 3 months later than scheduled because of additional scope accomplished
