Marine fueling station to receive needed repairs

Major repairs are planned next year for an aging marine fuel station near Aquatic Park that’s used to fill the tanks of Coast Guard cutters, tugs, bar pilot boats and other small vessels.

Load and berthing restrictions currently apply to the Hyde Street Harbor Fuel Dock, which is a Port of San Francisco-owned facility that’s operated by General Petroleum, because its substructure has become dilapidated.

The Port will soon begin seeking bids from contractors interested in repairing the facility by installing steel frames to support the structure and adding composite fenders around the pier’s perimeter.

At least one vessel will be able to fuel at a time while the repairs are under way, Port documents show.

Repairs are expected to begin in May and finish by next December.
