SANTA ANA, CA – July 20, 2016. PacRim Engineering (PacRim) is proud that our portfolio includes high profiled projects for the U.S. Navy. PacRim has been working on various military projects since 2008 and today we are extremely proud to make this announcement that the past three-years of efforts in both design and construction support have come to this point of celebration! San Clemente Island Fuel Replacement project is now 100% complete and is in full operation. The ribbon cutting ceremony took place on July 6 and received a LEED Silver Rating. PacRim was instrumental in Structural Engineering Design for the U.S. Navy and remained on the project supporting the General Contractor through the entire process. Congratulations on all PacRim Staff who were involved in this project!
PacRim would like to share an excerpt from the U.S. Navy’s new release which can be viewed in its entirety here: http://www.navy.mil/submit/display.asp?story_id=95543
“…The (ribbon cutting) ceremony commemorated the conclusion of Military Construction Project (MILCON) P-704F, a $31 million project replacing fuel storage facilities and pipeline slated to ensure Navy aircraft will have the essential fueling support they need to keep flying into the foreseeable future.
During the three-year MILCON, three subterranean JP-5 jet fuel tanks were replaced with new, state-of-the art, 100,000 gallon above-ground tanks. A new pump house and pump room also complement the innumerable upgrades to the facility’s fire suppression systems, truck fill stands, and leak detection systems. The intensive construction project essentially replaced an aging fuel facility with the cutting-edge, safety and mission-focused modernizations it needs to provide unparalleled warfighter support.
The San Clemente Island fuel facility issues in excess of 80,000 gallons of jet fuel each month for hundreds of Navy, joint service and allied forces aircraft.
As part of the Navy’s ongoing commitment to the environment, much of the project was planned and executed according to "green building" guidelines. Those initiatives, in turn, led to the facility’s current consideration for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver certification for groundbreaking efforts in environmental responsibility.”
