Lauderdale fuel dock is upgraded

09 Oct 2009 07:24 GMT

First phase reconstruction of Lauderdale Marina's fuel dock has been completed.



Bellingham Marine has completed the first phase of work in upgrading the fuel dock at one of Florida's oldest marinas.

The Lauderdale Marina, originally opened in 1948 and located near the famous 17th Street Causeway in Fort Lauderdale, selected Bellingham Marine to provide the unique fueling facility for the first phase of work in upgrading the fuel dock at the marina.

The marina replaced 151 feet of its existing concrete fixed dock with 151 feet of modern Unifloat® concrete floating dock including 36” freeboard for large fuel operations on one side and a heavy duty bumper fender system on the opposite side to accommodate smaller vessels. The existing fuel system was retrofitted while the electrical, fire protection and pumpout systems were upgraded to fit the many users of the facility.

In addition to relocating four of the fuel dispensers, an option for a fifth was designed into the new dock allowing the marina to offer another fueling station in the future. The electrical system was also substantially upgraded with the addition of 100A service for temporary moorage of boats up to 200 feet. Lauderdale’s complete fuel dock measures 350 feet in length and offers 12 dispensers.

The new portion of the fuel dock was built in honor of Bob Cox’s vision for the marina. Bob Cox is the founder of the Lauderdale Marina.

“The new dock is spectacular and our customers are really pleased with it,” remarked Ted Drum, President and CEO of Lauderdale Marina when asked about the new fuel dock.

Situated parallel to the ICW within five minutes from the Port Everglades entrance from the Atlantic, Lauderdale Marina is one of the best known facilities in the South Florida market and is ideally located with easy access for both large and small vessels.
