Case Study

carrier air wings preparing to deploy; and other units participating in training events, including joint and multinational training and exercises. To achieve this goal they utilize innovative and efficient resource management in partnership with the people of Northern Nevada and in harmony with the natural environment to continually maintain and upgrade the Fallon Range Training Complex; Van Voorhis Airfield; their aviation support facilities; and base living and recreation accommodations.

“The NAS Fallon project was prompted by Environmental Protection Agency NOx emissions reporting requirements. Tighter federal, state and municipal air quality standards are something that private sector and government users of diesel generators must comply with and represent a growth market for FloScan Fuel Log systems.”

The Bidding Process

Chugach Federal Solutions, Inc. provides general construction and construction management services for a variety of government entities including NASA and military installations in the Pacific, Alaska and the 48 contiguous States. It engages in design/build (DB), Design/Bid/Build (DBB), and competitively bid construction work. The bidding process was open to contractors capable of providing and installing fuel monitoring systems that meet the EPA’s rigid criteria for tracking fuel consumption to meet emissions and air quality regulations. Long time FloScan distributor and installer Johnson Hicks Marine Electronics (JHME) entered the bidding process incorporating FloScan Fuel Log generator systems capable of fitting all of the various diesel applications on the base. After a comprehensive analysis of the equipment and competitiveness of the competing bids JHME was awarded the contract.

JHME has been in business for over 35 years specializing in selling marine electronics with expert vessel installation including custom fabrication, service and repairs. They are known for their ability to provide and install a wide range of advanced systems in all types of vessels including high speed satellite internet, fuel management systems, Radar,

autopilot, sonar, GPS and chart plotters, charging systems and more. They have a wide ranging customer base both in the United States and abroad including Central and South America and the Middle East. The company has over 20-years experience selling and installing FloScan systems for marine use on main propulsion engines and onboard generator systems.

“The Fallon project was the first time JHME bid a job that involved installing FloScan systems on land-based generators,” said Joe Donatini, company president. “We’ve been installing their systems for marine applications for at least 23 years with excellent results and there is very little difference in the equipment needed for land-based applications with the exception of the FloScan Fuel Log gauge package with its non-resettable fuel totalizer to meet EPA requirements.”

JHME constructed a simple tree-type bracket for the FloScan supply and return line sensors and Fuel Log gauge then attached the fuel lines to complete the installation.
