Buncefield Aviation Fuel Terminal

Our Role:

Trant, with our pedigree in the Oil & Gas sector, were awarded this significant project as Civils Partner in the re-construction of the Buncefield  Fuel Storage Terminal, following the major  incident it suffered in 2005.

The Site

The site lies to the east of Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire. It is of strategic national importance, being a key component in the distribution of aviation fuel to major UK airports. A proportion of the terminal is operated by BPA and this is divided into two main areas, ‘Main Site’ and ‘Cherry Tree Farm’ (CTF). The main site is to contain eight new above ground storage tanks, consisting of three large diameter fixed roof storage tanks, three smaller diameter fixed roof interface tanks  situated within a new concrete containment bund and two new slops tanks situated in a separate bund on a new road loading island.

The CTF Site consists of two fixed roof above ground storage tanks situated within a new concrete containment bund. Interconnecting pipework will traverse the two sites via a deep RC Culvert.

Trant’s Scope

Our scope predominantly includes all Civil Engineering aspects of the project:

  • Temporary Works designs
  • Earthworks
  • Tank Foundations
  • Secondary RC containment bund
  • Tertiary containment bund
  • RC Culverts
  • Firemain
  • Roads and Drainage
