Temporary Power

A crane loads a 60,000 pound, 3.2 megawatt power plant and 5,000 KVA substation onto a flatbed truck for its return trip to the Naval Facilities Expeditionary Logistics Center in Port Hueneme, Calif. The equipment was delivered to Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., by a Mobile Utilities Support Equipment team back in July to provide temporary support to the Air Force Weather Agency headquarters facility here. At that time the Missouri River was threatening to flood the base, so the temporary portable electrical power would have been used to decrease the load on the base's generator plant and ensure AFWA's electrical power would have continued.
