The Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) released a new publication developed by the PEI Marina Fueling System Installation Committee, Recommended Practices for the Installation of Marina Fueling Systems, PEI/RP1000.
The purpose of the document is to provide a basic reference that conveys concrete, authoritative guidance on how to deal with the challenges of constructing safe, environmentally protective marina-fueling facilities that will allow reliable and economical service for many years.
These recommended practices apply to facilities that:
Serve recreational, commercial, government facilities by storing and dispensing motor fuel into vessels,
Have fixed, onshore storage tanks using submersible or suction pumps to move the fuel,
Are located in fresh water or salt water, lake or river environments, stable or fluctuating water-level conditions, and along stable or fluctuating shorelines,
Have underground or aboveground storage tanks,
Have a dispensing device that is stationary or mobile (e.g., a hydrant-type system with a mobile fueling cart).
These recommended practices do not apply to the following:
Facilities where the storage tanks are in, on, or over water (e.g., floating tanks, tanks located over water on piers or floating docks),facilities where the tank is mobile (e.g., on a truck).
