LEED Project for Fueling Back-Up Generators

This installation features a LEED project completed for a U.S. Army facility. Certified LEED projects fit these perameters:

  • Lower operating costs and increase asset value.
  • Reduce waste sent to landfills.
  • Conserve energy and water.
  • Healthier and safer for occupants.
  • Reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Qualify for tax rebates, zoning allowances and other incentives in hundreds of cities.
  • Demonstrate an owner's commitment to environmental stewardship and social responsibility.

This installation has been awarded Gold Status. This project consisted of two 6,000 gallon double wall tanks installed to deliver diesel fuel to 14 backup generators. Other installed equipment includes OMNTEC OEL8000II to monitor interstitial and tank volume using a BX-PDWS to distinguish between diesel fuel and water in the dry interstitial space of the tank. Also having two BX-LF-1 to monitor tank fuel levels and water levels in the tank storage area. Both OMNTEC units are housed in an ENC-4X and heat controlled thermostatically with an HTR-1 and a TEM-CS.3. We also installed GM50ARP-2Z GPI Positive Displacement Flow meters with a 4-20 MA transmitter with display,”GX500.” This allows the flow meter to transmit data to the EMT system on the base. Another important element of this installation was a RAS-1 audible and visual remote high level alarm to warn transport of overfilling of the tank.
