Replacement of diesel fuel system at Malpeque Cove Harbour, PE

The Harbour Authority of Malpeque is planning to replace the existing above-ground diesel fuel storage tank and fuel dispensing system at the Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) – Small Craft Harbour (SCH) located at 382 King Street, Malpeque, Prince Edward Island.  This project will consist of removing and decommissioning the current dispensing system and above-ground diesel fuel tank and installing a new dispensing system and above-ground diesel tank.  The new dispensing will be installed at the same location as the existing one.  The new tank will be installed 10m further west of the existing one. The existing tank's capacity is 13,600 liters which is the same as the new tank's capacity.  Work will be carried out upon receipt of appropriate permits and approvals (anticipated late Summer/early Fall, 2021).
