Rapidly Deployable Power Plants
All U.S. Military Bases in Afghanistan
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) – Philadelphia District
Client Needs and Requirements:
USACE required power generation for several bases and camps situated throughout the Afghanistan countryside. Because some of these camps were expected to be temporary in nature, the power infrastructures needed to be modular and scaleable, in order to adapt to changing needs and move quickly as required by constantly changing war-time conditions.
Challenges and ISI’s Response:
These projects each required a very agressive schedule, with a challenging periods of performance. ISI’s well-honed logistics structure, management strength, and experience, qualified personnel met the challenge.
These projects were completed on budget and on time.
ISI provided and installed both permanent and temporary generator plants at multiple locations in Afghanistan. These plants were comprised of multiple generators operating in parallel to achieve the required output capacity, and included fuel storage and delivery systems, power transformation systems and power distribution switchgear.
Three specific projects completed were at Shindand Airfield, FOB Shank, and FOB Marmal. These had generator plants installed ranging from 5MW – 10MW with disturbuiton at 4.16kV, 11kV, and 13.8kV.
