Shell’s Carson terminal project site presented the construction team with several challenges, like the buried obstructions uncovered during excavation and trenching operations. This site also required FASTECH to coordinate with Shell’s specialty pipeline and electrical utility contractors, who brought power and gas to the station from connection points several thousand feet away.
- FASTECH began with a site investigation and development of equipment specs based on the projected fueling requirements for the site. Major equipment was then sourced and purchased before breaking ground to avoid construction delays.
- FASTECH redesigned footings and realigned trenches for buried piping to avoid costly removal or relocation efforts. FASTECH also participated in regular coordination meetings with other contractors to keep the project on schedule.
- FASTECH assisted with specifying and purchasing the primary equipment for the project from ANGI Energy Systems, a leading supplier of CNG fueling equipment.
