Kandahar Airfiled (KAF), Afghanistan
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) – Philadelphia District
Client Needs and Requirements:
The U.S. Army needed prime power connectivity to the helium refill facilities that are used to fuel their new camera-equipped observation blimps to be used for long-range visual surveillance critical to war-time intelligence and the safety of our forces as well as civilians in the area.
Challenges and ISI’s Response:
No special challenges were encountered with this project, and all activities were completed according to plan.
ISI was able to provide the required power connecivity 30 days ahead of schedule, allowing for this new safety feaure to be implemented sooner than planned.
To complete this project, ISI instlaled a 200-amp power feeder from a nearby main distribution panel, and connected to the facility vendor’s power panel.
