To support base operations and enable the removal of expensive spot generation, the U.S. government needed a centralized power plant in Konduz.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contracted WSP to support the base. WSP delivered a turnkey solution that included:
- A 4.8 MW installed, 60 Hertz plant with five DFLE 1500 gensets, expandable to 7.7 MW.
- Containerized four, 160-volt common bus and switchgear servicing a three-feeder, underground primary distribution system (combined total length of 3,000 meters).
- 17 substations providing 120/208-volt service.
- A 30,000-gallon fuel storage and supply system for five days continuous operation.
- 24/7 operations and maintenance of the plant.
