Taking Measures for a Safer, Reliable Fuel Storage Option

For safer fuel storage, the Dallas Police department needs efficient reservoirs with polished concrete surface to charge up their vehicles. Spending on cleanup and maintenance of underground fuel tanks is complicated as well as expensive. Installing above ground fuel tanks is the most suitable option as it reduces yearly expenses and increases mobility. Furthermore, it also reduces the chances of leakage related accidents and minimizes corrosion.
Dallas Police Department is efficient and equipped with high-performance vehicles that require easy access to fuel recharge. To upgrade and supplant their fuel storage, Dallas PD chose METCO for mounting steel-made, corrosion-free fuel tanks above the ground.

Business Case

Restructuring Fuel Supply

Under METCO’s supervision, the contractor installed the fuel tank at the site for improved safety. The fuel station was first evaluated for its eligibility with respect to local ordinance and fire codes. Land area was measured to ensure that it can accommodate the above-ground tank. The site was also assessed for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, spill prevention alternates and protection from theft and vandalism.
This alternative offered an economical and efficient fuel reservation system for improved fuel distribution and access. The essential components of the project included:
1: Steel-based Fuel Tank
2: Flex Pipes
3: Fuel Dispenser
4: AC Fuel Transfer Pumps
5: Hanging Hardware (nozzle, swivels, splash shield…)
6: Monitoring Well
The responsibilities included in providing a safer, accessible and durable storage tank above the ground, which was handled by our reliable, TCEQ licensed contractor.The above the ground tanks are durable and corrosion resistant. It also prevents underground contamination as leakage can instantly be addressed, which otherwise pose a greater risk to soil health, ecosystem and water bodies.
