Adam Turner, with Vitus Energy LLC., states the project purpose is to provide fuel storage for Vitus's operations in Bethel, Alaska. Fuel stored at the tank farm will be delivered to local residents, filling stations, and other customers on an as needed basis. Work being proposed, is construction of a new bulk fuel tank farm and truck fill/offload facility in Bethel AK. The new facility will include approximately 34 30,000-gallon skid mounted, horizontal, aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) for bulk storage of diesel and gasoline situated within a lined, earthen, secondary containment dike. Other features will include a drive-in truck fill/offload secondary containment area, access drives, security fence, mechanical, electrical, lighting, and other associated systems.
