The project entailed extensive modifications and extensions to the existing Jet-A hydrant system. The existing hydrant fueling system at Miami International Airport, Terminal E-Satellite, was insufficient to support Group IV, Group V & Group VI aircrafts. The expanded system allows the largest aircrafts to be serviced at these gates. This is part of the Miami International Airport’s long term growth and expansion plan. The overall scope of work included the field layout, fabrication & installation of Jet Fuel piping ranging from 4”-14”.
Also, all of the new airfield Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) pavements were replaced and enlarged. A highly specialized loop flushing system was designed in house, set up & operated around the clock. All of this work was phased to keep the majority of the terminal open to planes.
