Fast flush system

Project Background
The Fast flush systems was designed to enable bottom tank material to be drawn from the tank in sufficient quantity and at sufficient velocity to flush the maximum amount of water and particulate matter from the tank floor.

The turnkey solution eliminates the risk of AVTUR exposure to the operators and reducing the physical labour to keep the fuel on specification.

During the wet season the bund area flooded, restricting access. Elevated platforms and walkways were designed and installed above the flood level; therefore, the operators can focus on their daily fast flush procedures.

Project Challenges
Site mobilisation 30 April 2018, Site De-mobilisation 13 July 2018, a total of 74 Days for construction. The 2 x 12,000L Horizontal underground tanks arrived on 9 June 2018 and installed on the same day.

Worked in with the Operating Agent (OA) to keep Fuel Farm 7 live during construction. There were no interruptions to Military operations, maintaining rapid turnaround capability for the several unscheduled military landings.

Project Outcomes
ICD was highly committed to meeting the deadline, prioritising this project and devoting a large volume of resources relative to the size of the project.

Despite the tight timeframe, the project was delivered before the pitch-black military exercise.
