As part of the airport expansion program at Fort-Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport, EAC Consulting, Inc. was tasked, by the Broward County Aviation Department (BCAD), with the relocation of the existing aircraft hydrant fueling system in conflict with the proposed expansion and Gate replacement of Terminal 4 and the associated South Runway Expansion.
EAC led a team of six (6)specialized sub-consultants for the $21.3M fueling system relocation. The proposed aircraft hydrant fueling system is comprised of a primary 14” doublewalled main line and a secondary 12” double-walled line. Both fuel lines are connected to the existing system at Gate F-2, Terminal 3, to the West, encircling the proposed Concourse G with a minimum 100’ offset (as per NFPA 415) and connection on the east side of Concourse G near South Terminal Drive. Fourteen (14) new hydrant pits are served from the 12” secondary line with two (2) intermediate valve vaults to isolate sections of the fuel lines during maintenance or an emergency.
