Construction Inspection, Power Systems Upgrade for Facility 8317, Vandenberg AFB, CA
Construction/Demolition (Construction Inspection): Vandenberg AFB, CAOTIE provided construction inspection for upgrades to existing power systems because the current power system did not provide sufficient capacity to support the mission needs. OTIE reworked the existing power pole for new configuration and poured a new pad and pad mount, and installed a 300KVA 12KV-480/277V transformer. We encased conduit from the new transformer in concrete filled trenches.

OTIE installed a new 400 amp 480/277V manual transfer switch, a new 480/277V distribution panel, a new 150 KVA 480-208/120V transformer, a new 200 amp 480/277V panel, and new breakers to re-support existing systems.

To avoid interference with critical mission activities, OTIE performed weekend work for steps where outage time exceeded four hours.
