Industry standards once allowed airlines to specify sources and brands of aviation fuel for their respective aircraft fleets.
Built in 1971, Newark Liberty International Airport’s fueling system infrastructure was built around this standard and is now in dire need of major modification and upgrade to comply with current standards and address the facility’s growing demands.
Mott MacDonald is designing the fueling infrastructure modernization throughout the airport, extending from the fuel farm to hydrant fueling systems.
Our design will include new main transmission lines from the South Fuel Farm to the Fuel Selection Area (FSA) and installation of all distribution lines to the terminals and FedEx from the FSA.
The modifications will enhance system operation and efficiency, bring the affected portions of the system into compliance with the latest environmental regulatory requirements, and allow for the forecasted airport master planned improvements.
Meanwhile, we will keep Terminal A operating efficiently and reliably and fuel flowing to the existing concourses throughout the project construction, which requires detailed phasing and to incorporate flexibility into the new concepts to allow future changes to be made to terminals.
