CES receives control module, steam generator for Yokota

The 374th Civil Engineer Squadron received a packaged electrical control module and a heat recovery steam generator for Yokota’s new power plant on April 13. The PECM essentially works as the brain of the power plant. The computers connected to it to run the plant remotely, while the steam generator produces steam for heating from the power plant’s exhaust.

Since 2019, the 374th CES has been upgrading Yokota’s power grid infrastructure. This project aims to increase energy efficiency up to 30% while providing generation capacity to increase resiliency.

Construction at Yokota is projected to be completed in early 2023, and is predicted to annually save approximately 75,000 kilowatt hours of electricity and 30 million gallons of water. In all, the base will gain an additional 10 megawatts of power for critical readiness capabilities, environmentally friendly facilities and reduce energy costs.
