NJ Transit Raritan Yard Fueling Facility & Crew Quarters Raritan, New Jersey
With awarding this contract, NJ Transit presented TAK an opportunity to demonstrate its unique construction planning and coordination expertise. TAK successfully allowed for continuous NJ Transit rail operations during construction of this multi-phased fueling project.
The first phase of the project included the construction of the new fueling facility. The facility consisted of a new Locomotive Shed and adjacent fuel tank pad housing four 12,000 gal aboveground diesel storage tanks, a waste oil tank, and a motor oil tank. TAK installed new fueling operation equipment including a new diesel fuel crane, a heated motor oil dispenser & hose reel system, a sand storage bin & transporter system, FRP track drainage collector pans, a Veeder Root tank monitoring system, aboveground piping and emergency generator and lighting. Once the new facility was on-line, TAK relocated the existing crew facilities and personnel adjacent to the new fueling facility. The existing facility was demolished and contaminated soil was removed. The final phase of the project included the construction of the new Crew Quarters building. The masonry/load bearing steel framed structure featured a manufactured roof panel system and EIFS wall panel system. Sitework included exterior utilities, asphalt pavement and guiderail.
