The progress continues down on the farm, the North Carolina Global TransPark fuel farm, that is!
Site prep work has been completed, with entrance drives and drainage pipes in place. The construction has shifted toward the foundation work for the fuel tanks. The footings for the storage tanks are being dug, with supplies in place.
NC Global TransPark is constructing this new fuel farm to replace its aging system and better meet the fuel service demands brought on by recent tenant expansions and growth. For comparison, the old fuel farm’s max capacity is 40,000 gallons compared to the new fuel farm’s 500,000-gallon fuel capacity.
The new fuel farm with its three vertical tanks will be adjacent to NC Global TransPark’s 11,500 ft runway.
