Morristown Airport began its Fuel Farm Rehabilitation Project on Monday, March 14th.
In order to prepare for the project start, MMU sold all of its inventory at the current facility and switched over to the temporary facility on Monday, March 14th.
MMU will also be adding a third tank to the temporary facility in the next few weeks to increase our capacity.
We appreciate your patience during this project and if you have any questions, please contact Airport Operations at 973-538-3366, ext. 116.
The Reason for the Fuel Farm Project
The project will replace infrastructure built in the late 80’s with new equipment that reflects today’s best environmental and quality control practices. All components of the existing farm, except for the storage tanks, will be replaced. A new 12,000 gallon avgas tank will be installed and the existing 20,000 gallon tank will be converted to jet fuel, allowing for a total of 120,000 gallons of jet fuel capacity. Canopies will be erected over the tank dike and fueling area, ensuring that storm water is properly managed, and allowing drivers to stay dry while transferring fuel. The project is expected to take between eight and ten months.
