Fuel Transfer Facility—Fender System Replacement

This paper is a case history of a fender system replacement at a fuel transfer facility located on the gulf coast. The facility is a pier 14.02 meters (46 feet) wide by 122.53 meters (402 feet) long. The type of construction is concrete bearing and steel batter piles, a concrete deck, and associated steel pipe racks and fuel transfer hoses. The owners needed to replace the existing fender system to safely increase the size and displacement of the ships using the facility. It is an older facility that has had many repairs, renovations and additions over its life. The paper will discuss the use of cutting edge technology and innovative solutions to address design and construction issues, including congestion under the existing structure, deterioration of the structure, safely increasing the size of ships using the pier and a short construction window.
