Buncefield Terminal Redevelopment

The objective of the project is to rebuild the bulk oil terminal which was destroyed in the Buncefield incident in December 2005. It involves the design and construction of 8 tanks (5 bulk storage, 3 interface) totalling some 65,000m3 of fuel storage and all associated pumping, terminal and control facilities to handle and distribute aviation and ground fuels (diesel and petrol) received via associated multiproduct pipeline systems.
BPA undertook a FEED to develop the specification and establish a robust cost estimate for the rebuild and commissioning of the terminal. The design incorporated the Storage Tanks, Piping Systems, Civil Structures, Fire Systems, Electrical Infrastructure, Control and Instrumentation Systems and Cathodic Protection Systems. The designs also took into consideration the recommendations of the Major Accident Investigation and all subsequent HSE recommendations, guidance and changes to regulation in the development, and management of bulk fuel storage facilities.
Subsequently BPA managed the appointment of Amec Foster Wheeler as Main Works Contractor in March 2013.
