Sunoco Logistics Fire Water Intake
AT A GLANCE...
Sunoco Logistics L.P.
Marcus Hook, PA
Commerce Construction was contracted to construct a Firewater Intake Structure for Sunoco Logistics LP in Marcus Hook, PA. The Firewater Intake structure was added as a significant upgrade to comply with the required firefighting capabilities which were a result of other facility upgrades.
The project consisted of a 50 x 100 cofferdam, with a 30 foot deep excavation. The cofferdam walls were installed using 36” Pipe and NZ 19 Sheetpiles. The interior space had 2 levels of steel bracing. The actual intake structure was constructed using both cast in place concrete and pre-cast concrete which provided schedule benefit and also decreased the impact from cold weather variables. The project is scheduled to conclude during the 2nd Quarter of 2017.
