To assist interested parties, a brief/general description (not all inclusive) is provided below:
Pump fuel out of 3 separate 1000-gallon underground storage tanks with various levels of product. Refill with new fuel. One tank will require the pulled fuel oil to have a moisture control additive/treatment added.

Emergency Generator 103;
656 gallons to be removed. Refill this tank to 90%, approximately 900 gallons.

Emergency Generator 99;
622 gallons to be removed. Refill this tank to 90%, approximately 900 gallons.

Emergency Generator 97;
690 gallons. Refill this tank to 90%, approximately 900 gallons.
** This fuel will need to be treated with Dry Tank moisture control additive (or equivalent) in the proper ratio of fuel/treatment mix. **

Emergency Portable Generator, Small (208V) approx. 100 gallons.
Emergency Portable Generator, Large (480V) approx. 700 gallons.
The removed fuel from Generator Tank 97 will need to have the moisture control additive added. All removed fuel will then need to be transferred and offloaded into our Boiler Plant main fuel oil tanks. There is an East and West tank that hold 40,000 gallons each. At the time of scheduled service, the tank with the lowest level of fuel will be identified and that tank will be used to offload the pumped fuel.

Distance from furthest fuel tank to be pumped is less than a B= mile to the offload location, all tanks are located on the VA Campus. There is enough room in either one of the boiler tanks to accommodate the pumped fuel.

These are fuel tanks for emergency generators. Once the fuel has been removed/pumped out, it must be refilled immediately. This will require either two fuel wagons, a tandem trailer or trailer with divided tanks. Contractor to determine best practice.
