Core Engineers Portable Emergency Power System

Project: Portable Emergency Power System
Customer: Siemens – Petróleos de Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA)
Location: Venezuela

Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A. is the Venezuelan state-owned oil and natural gas company which owns Citgo and other subsidiaries. It has activities in exploration, production, refining and exporting oil as well as exploration and production of natural gas. Core Engineered Solutions worked with PDVSA and Siemens to create an emergency back-up power system involving UL 142 double wall tanks that mounted on portable trailers for easy relocation. Core developed a solution starting from the design phase and saw it through to the installation process.

Application: Provide (16) 20,000 Gallon Double Wall Diesel Storage Tanks to Backup To Natural Gas Driven Turbine

Components: UL 142 Double Wall Tanks, Duplex Submersible Pumps, Duplex Filtration, Ground Mount Fill & Static Reel, Accumulator, Custom Trailers, Stainless Steel Piping, Valves & Safesite FOC Fuel Oil Controller.

Installation: FAST (Factory Assembled Storage Tank) Process provided preengineered, fully assembled fuel storage systems which were delivered to the site for pain-free installation on the custom trailers.

Scope Of Work

Utilizing our FAST (Factory Installed Storage Tank) process Core was able to build, assemble, test and mount the components on the custom trailers in minimal time while maximizing the level of quality control and safety. Throughout the process Core provided drawings, specifications, procurement, manufacturing and installation assistance for all of these custom systems.

SafeSite FOC:

The system featured our SafeSite FOC Fuel Oil Control & Power Distribution System. This is a pre-engineered product that integrates power distribution, fuel transfer, tank monitoring and fuel polishing. The SafeSite FOC is delivered with your fuel tank and includes a site schematic drawing showing conduit layout, and specific point-to-point wiring diagrams for each component. This helps to simplify the installation process and minimize on site expenses.
