DFW Ramp Expansion Hydrant Fueling
Project phasing was complicated by work in the airfield operations area, avoiding the de-icing season, and the need to keep the existing fuel system active throughout construction.
The Dallas Fort Worth International Airport is planning to expand the airfield ramp pavement off the southwest corner of existing Terminal D South Ramp to connect with the existing General Aviation ramp. It is anticipated the ramp expansion will accommodate six wide body or 10 narrow body aircraft and provide provisions to facilitate future installation of a complete hydrant system for the future Terminal F.
Argus Consulting was retained for design and construction administration services for the hydrant fueling to the new Terminal F hardstand positions. The design includes tie-ins to existing fuel mains, two cast in place concrete isolation vaults, new fuel main sections, hydrant pits and lateral piping, and an EFSO (emergency fuel shutoff) system for the new parking positions.
