Project Overview x

HDL was responsible for evaluating and developing a concept design and final design for upgrades to the existing Kake Tribal Fuel Corporation bulk fuel tank farm and Inside Passage Electric Cooperative power plant. Working with the Alaska Energy Authority, HDL performed preliminary research, community collaboration, and a detailed site investigation to identify code deficiencies, maintenance problems, and environmental liabilities with the existing bulk fuel tank farm. We also prepared a site investigation summary report to outline the existing facility’s components, conditions, and maintenance history.

The new design consisted of gravel pads, lined concrete containment dike, truck fill shelter, horizontal fuel tanks, power plant module, pumps and appurtenances, contained distribution pipeline, vehicle dispenser, and marine header.
