ECS Brings New Life to Old Navy In-Vessel Composting System

April 5, 2016

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 it came with died.  

ECS won the bid to install new controls, VFDs, sensors, and motorized dampers to
control and monitor their eight vessel system.
 
This project was a perfect application for the CompTroller™ 3.0.  Not only could
we get them back up and running quickly with off-the-shelf technology, but we
could offer them a whole suite of improved control and monitoring features. 

The entire upgrade, including 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. NAS Whidbey Island now has a
functioning food waste/yard waste/biosolids compost facility and they are very
happy about that.
