NCYC Fuel Tank Replacement Project Starts 30 September 2013 – September 28, 2013

NCYC’s Fuel Tank Replacement Project

NCYC will be commencing a Diesel and Premium Unleaded Fuel Tank Replacement project on Monday 30 September 2013. As a result, NCYC’s supply of Diesel and Premium Unleaded fuel will be unavailable from close of business on 30th September 2013 until approximately 18th October 2013(approximately 19 days)

The project will consist of:

  1. Excavating part of NCYC’s car park under which the tanks are situated;
  2. Removal of the existing underground tank;
  3. Shoring, sheet piling and dewatering, as required;
  4. Environmental testing and soil analysis as required under NCYC’s approved Development Application for the project;
  5. Installation, anchoring, connection and infilling of a new underground tank;
  6. Concrete capping of the area; and
  7. Commissioning and completion of the project.

During the period of construction approximately 8 car park bays along the boat yard shed side of NCYC’s car park will be fenced off and unavailable for use. During the project, one way access (N to S) from one end of the car park to the other will be maintained for all but a couple of days. For several days during the project, NCYC’s car park adjacent to the construction site will need to be closed off due to the need for access to the site by heavy machinery which will prevent access from one end of the car park to the other with diversion on to Hannell Street necessary. The first such day is likely to be Monday 30 September 2013 from 7am to midday during which a crane will be on site to provide lifting services for an unrelated project which has been scheduled to occur prior to the commencement of the Fuel Tank Replacement project.

During the Fuel Tank Replacement project, NCYC Management requests that all members strictly abide by fencing restrictions and signage on site to ensure the highest level of safety is maintained. Further updates regarding the project will follow each Friday and Members are more than welcome to observe the goings-on of the project from behind the fenced off areas. Please also comply with requests from contractors on site who will be working in confined spaces and who need to ensure safety of both their employees and the public is given the highest priority.

This project will cause some inconveniences for members and tenants mainly related to a reduction in parking on NCYC’s precinct for the duration of the project. NCYC apologises in advance for any inconvenience caused however this project will assist to ensure that NCYC can continue to supply good quality Diesel and Premium Unleaded petrol to its members and local the local boating fraternity in a safe and environmentally sound method in the future.
