A major Ivy League University's new Alternative Fuel Vehicle Project (AFVP) advocates the use of alternative fuels in Harvard's transportation fleet and is designed to reduce the environmental impacts of campus operations. As part of this project, the University recently converted some of it's fleet of bus fleet to a more environmentally friendly Biodiesel system. To refuel these vehicles the University required a fleet fueling system compatible with alternative fuels. Harvard chose Core Engineered Solutions because of Core's experience with alternative fuels and our pre-engineered solutions.
provided a turnkey installation that included design, drawings,
installation and startup. The dispensing system included a 2000
gallon concrete encased ConVault storage tank delivered complete
with Astra pump and monitoring system. Both the ConVault storage
tank and Astra pump are compatible with most alternative fuels
including Biodiesel. A fuel management system including windows
based FMS software allows Harvard to accurately track fleet
dispensing and fuel demand. Core also provided and installed a fence
and a concrete barrier that exactly matched the ConVault tank.
