SECURE FLOATING FUEL: HUDSON RIVER BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION

Location

Hudson River, New York State

Demand

Fueling barge mounted equipment

Solution

100+ TransCube storage tanks

Response

Zero downtime

“A refuelling vessel to zig-zag between equipment would be expensive and complex”

Building bridges

Constructing a state-of-the-art, 3-mile long bridge across New York’s Hudson River came with some engineering challenges, plus a bill for almost $4b. Cranes, generators and towers were mounted on a string of barges for round-the-clock operation – but how would they get a consistent supply of fuel?

Using a refueling vessel to zig-zag between vital equipment would require expensive open water training and complex permits. Getting the logistics wrong would mean downtime the schedule wouldn’t allow. So we were asked if we were ready to unlock the puzzle.

Project Solution

Engineered for the environment

Our solution was over 100 TransCube tanks, each taken full to a waiting barge, and simply swapped out for an empty one. We supplied different sizes according to need, each with 110% containment and full load lifting eyes for total transportability.

Not only did having the right fuel ready mean minimal downtime, TransCube units were also the only ones that passed the stringent environmental standards attached to working with heavy fuel in open water. We’re proud to have played our small part in laying 14 miles of span cable, 50 miles of pilings and 220 million pounds of US steel.
