STEAM AND COMPRESSED AIR. In general, steam and compressed air
services are not required on fueling piers.
SALTWATER AND NONPOTABLE WATER. Ships loading or unloading
POL products at fueling piers will never be cold iron and will therefore not require a
shore-to-ship fire protection water connection.
POTABLE WATER, SEWER, AND OILY WASTE. Supply potable water
systems at locations where connections may be made to existing systems. Maximum
potable water requirements are 3,785 lpm (1,000 gpm) with 276 kPa (40 psi) residual
pressure at the most remote outlet. Design outlets as for active berthing and space
about 61 m (200 ft) apart. Provide oily waste and sewage collection systems at all
fueling piers unless instructed otherwise. Consult with the Activity and the cognizant
NAVFAC EFD/EFA OR USACE DISTRICT. Provide all three systems in accordance
with the criteria defined in Chapter 3.
POL SYSTEMS. Refer to MIL-HDBK-1022A for information on piping and
other appurtenances, including manifolds, hoses and shelters, connections and
adapters, hose handling equipment, bilge and ballast lines, stripper pumps,
environmental protection, and other equipment. In general, ships use a 152.3 mm (6-in)
commercial flanged connection. Verify before commencing design of shore
ELECTRICAL SERVICE. Ships service, temporary lighting, and ships
industrial power are not required for fueling piers and quaywalls. Consult with the
Activity and the cognizant NAVFAC EFD/EFA OR USACE DISTRICT regarding
electrical systems that directly serve the pier. Evaluate all hazardous requirements and
preferences that may be encountered.
TELECOMMUNICATION SYSTEMS. Fueling piers require
telecommunication systems. However, full services that are defined for active and
repair berths are not required. Consult with the Activity and the cognizant NAVFAC
EFD/EFA OR USACE DISTRICT for specific requirements. In general, the design
guides for active and repair berths are applicable. The systems required are to be
evaluated on a project-by-project basis. Lastly, comply with all hazardous requirements
associated with fueling piers.
ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS. Refer to MIL-HDBK-1022A for
FIRE PROTECTION. Refer to UFC 3-600-01, Design: Fire Protection
Engineering For Facilities. Consult with the Fire Protection Engineering Departments,
both at the local level and at the NAVFAC EFD/EFA OR USACE DISTRICT level.
