Newark Liberty International Airport’s current fuel system was constructed in 1970 and needed repairs and upgrades to meet industry standards requiring centralized purchasing of Jet-A fuel for all users, which simplifies multi-pump fuel supply systems and piping networks. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey called for upgrades to the current system, allowing it to function more efficiently.
Conti is responsible for Phase I of a three-phase multi-year fuel system modification program. We are decommissioning the old single-wall welded steel pipe and installing approximately 29,000 linear feet of buried 22-inch double-wall steel pipe for the aviation fuel main line. The pipe includes sensors for fuel leak detection and runs from the South Fuel Farm to the new Fuel Serving Area and reconnects to the Central Terminal Area. The pipeline routing will benefit a new Terminal A, which is in the planning phase.
A two-position truck fill station loading rack is being constructed airside next to the new Contact Water Treatment Facility (CWTF). This strategic location allows for faster fueling and will result in less traffic. The new CWTF consists of three holding tanks, one reclaim tank and an oil water separator.
Modifications are also being made to various components of the fueling system including valves, pumps and electrical controls. These changes will reduce both maintenance and electrical costs.
