Brooklyn Tank Farm

Astoria Generating Company

Project Overview

Astoria Generating Company had three mounded 3 million gallon kerosene tanks and one 1.8 million gallon diesel tank that needed to be removed from their Brooklyn generating station.

MVN handled every aspect of the job, from the design phase, right through the completion of the project. Our local knowledge kept the job on track, including when we changed the word “demolition” to “dismantling” on the paperwork to avoid objections from NYC officials.

We successfully removed the tanks and relocated a 24” gas main on schedule, not an easy feat in NYC. We also relocated the fuel oil supply, cargo, transfer lines, and fire piping, putting our client in compliance with the strict NY Department of Environmental Conservation guidelines while minimizing costs.
