Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island installed a competitor’s (non-ECS) in-vessel composting system in the 1990s. Technical support had been an issue for some time, and in 2015 the vintage custom control system stopped working. The compost facility needed a company that would provide:
- A replacement automated aeration control and monitoring system to manage their existing 8 vessel system
- New VFDs, sensors, motorized dampers and other components
- Reliable service and ongoing technical support to assist with operations
This project was a perfect application for the CompTroller™ 3.0. Our
off-the-shelf technology got them up and running quickly, and we provided a whole suite of improved control and monitoring features.
The entire upgrade which included installing panels, re-landing field wires,
installing new pressure sensors, testing equipment and providing specific
training on the new Comptroller™ software and a review of composting procedures with operators and manager took three days onsite.
