ICA chose FASTECH and Fiedler to roll out their second of six retail hydrogen refueling stations in North America.
One of the project’s conditions was to keep the existing gas station and operational repair garage open during construction. This made it challenging to install the station modules, storage vessels, dispensers, and ancillary equipment.
FASTECH utilized a phased construction approach to minimize the impacts on the existing gas station’s operations. Relocation and reconstruction of an air-water station, propane tank, driveways, and ADA pathways were all sequenced to avoid a complete station closure.
The new station also required that electrical utility power be brought in from over 300 feet away – the same area that the piping and conduit to the dispensers needed to be installed.
FASTECH used two station modules and supporting equipment from NEL. FASTECH installed the equipment and the first ICA dispenser spanners, special architectural branding elements that overhang each dispenser.
- 2 NEL station modules and dispensers
- A 48-vessel assembly of Tenaris high storage vessels
- All the ancillary equipment to support the new station, including a site emergency shutdown system and security cameras.
