Alternate Power Solutions

About The Project

The existing APU’s had reached end of life and were no longer supported by the OEM’s.  BASE was hired to replace the existing APU’s and electrical systems and to improve system reliability.  Outage timeline was critical and required creativity to stay on budget and schedule.  BASE provided solutions for engineering, construction and commissioning to minimize risk and overall project cost that met the critical timelines.
