The fuel oil storage tanks are FRP integral, construction with aluminum baffling and hydro-tested to ABS requirements. The fuel day tanks and aft trim tanks are fabricated from aluminum; formed, welded and hydro-tested to ABS requirements.
Fuel storage tanks are filled via fill station connections located on the port and starboard weather decks. Fuel storage tanks, aft trim tanks and the fuel day tanks are connected to an expansion tank, which is then vented to the atmosphere. The fuel vent expansion tank will capture approximately 80 U.S gallons (302.8L) of overflow before it escapes through the vent. Installed low in the tank is an alarm float switch that provides a warning that tanks are full and that fill operations should be stopped or modulated.
Either the AC or DC electric fuel transfer pumps may be used for transfer operations. Main engines and gensets draw fuel independently from the day tanks through the separate fuel service manifolds.
