Two Naval Air Sation airfields required simultaneous upgrade.  Bath was the design consultant on this $5 million design/build project.

The scope of work included a new electrical vault, electrical power, emergency generator, airfield lighting, airfield paving and site drainage. The parking aprons at both sites were expanded which required the relocation of the airfield vault at NAS Corpus Christi and modification to runway and taxiway lighting at NALF Orange Grove.  The electrical portion of the project consisted of:

• 15kV SF-6 switch
• 225kVA and 500kVA pad mounted transformers
• 250kW emergency generator
• Nine - 20 amp constant current regulators
• 15kV and 5kV power
• Field verification and relocation of all runway and taxiway circuits
• Minimize outages to airfield
• New airfield vault building
