Project Description:

The Project includes, but not limited to, the following electrical infrastructure repairs (each item is described in full detail in the attached study titled - Airfield Electrical Infrastructure Assessment, dated April 2015.):1) Repair/Replace the North (Main) Airfield Lighting Vault:

The Main Vault houses the majority of the airfield lighting Constant Current Regulators (CCRs) which power the airfield lighting. The building is significantlydeteriorated, has exposed high voltage wiring, does not meet electrical safety codes and industry standards, and lacks most safety and energy saving features available. High voltage electrical distribution and switchgear is within the generator room that is not separated from other spaces by firewalls.

The obsolete airfield lighting vault building can be repaired by replacement with a new building adjacent to its current location. The project includes the replacement of the building with an approximately 3,000 SF masonry structure in accordance with UFC 3-535-01, replacement CCRs, transformers, and emergency generator. CCR and airfield circuit configuration will be installed according to an Airfield Re-cabling Plan to utilize the North Vault to power circuits associated with Runway 13L- 31R and 13R-31L and for the South Vault to power the Runway 17L-35R and 17R-35L operating areas. The project includes separation of circuits and replacement of homeruns to theairfield to connect to existing circuits.

Items include, but not limited to: demolition of existing cable vault bldg., electrical demolition, conduits, junction structures, ALCS, stand by generator, lighting, CCR’s and Misc. Grading, drainage and site work. Only minimal pavementrepairs to repair airfield lighting. No major pavement repairs will be accomplished.

2) Repair RW 35L Carrier Deck Lights:

Carrier deck lighting power and controls will be repaired and modified to provide control at the ATCT and homerun cables to the South Vault in accordance with a Master Re-cabling and Vault Repair Plan.

Items include, but not limited to: Misc. demolition, Junction structures, (ALCS), Runway threshold lights, Runway edge lights, taxiway edge lights, taxiway carrier deck lights, carrier deck edge, carrier deck athwart ship lights and carrier deck centerline lights, conduit, trench, installation of junction box/conduit to connect PAPI system at a later date. Only minimal pavement repairs to repair airfield lighting. No major pavement repairs will be accomplished.

3) Repair RW 17L Carrier Deck Lights:

The in-pavement simulated carrier deck lighting infrastructure is significantlydeteriorated and in need of repair by replacement. The fixtures are deteriorated and the wiring is exposed between the lights in shallow saw-kerfs subject to intense wear from carrier deck landings. Carrier deck lighting power and controls will also be repaired and modified toprovide control at the ATCT and homerun cables to the South Vault in accordancewith a Master Re-cabling and Vault Repair Plan.

Items include, but not limited to: Misc. demolition, Junction structures, (ALCS), Runway threshold lights, Runway edge lights, taxiway edge lights, taxiway carrier deck lights, carrier deck edge, carrier deck athwart ship lights and carrier deck centerline lights, conduit, trench, installation of junction box/conduit to connect PAPI system at a later date. Only minimal pavement repairs to repair airfield lighting. No major pavement repairs will be accomplished.

4) Repair/Replace the South Airfield Lighting Vault

The existing South (Approach) Airfield Lighting Vault, Building #3735, is constructed of masonry block and generally suitable to meet the airfield needs to house Constant Current Regulators (CCR’s) for the runway and taxiways. However, the building condition is deteriorated and in need of repair and renovations to provide adequate ventilation, HVAC, and air filtration to sustain modern airfield lighting equipment and controls. The building interior and exteriorrequires repairs and renovation to withstand the elements, remove corrosion, and insulate the building to reduce energy use and provide a dust free environmentfor the electrical equipment.

The South Vault is proposed to be equipped to provide CCRs for the Runway 17L-35R and 17R-35L operating areas and Runway 35R Approach Lights in accordance witha Master Re-cabling Plan. The separation of the North and South airfield circuits is necessary to reduce potential for single point of failure of mission critical airfield facilities. The South Vault will also house transformer equipment to power the South Airfield OLS equipment and Emergency Generator.

Items include, but not limited to: demolition of existing cable vault bldg., electrical demolition, conduits, junction structures, ALCS, stand by generator, lighting, CCR’s and Misc. Grading, drainage and site work. Only minimal pavementrepairs to repair airfield lighting. No major pavement repairs will be accomplished.

5) Repair RW 13L Carrier Deck Lights

The in-pavement simulated carrier deck lighting infrastructure is significantlydeteriorated and in need of repair by replacement. The fixtures are deteriorated and the wiring is exposed between the lights in shallow saw-kerfs subject to intense wear from carrier deck landings.

Items include, but not limited to: Misc. demolition, Junction structures, (ALCS), Runway threshold lights, Runway edge lights, taxiway edge lights, taxiway carrier deck lights, carrier deck edge, carrier deck athwart ship lights and carrier deck centerline lights, conduit, trench, installation of junction box/conduit to connect PAPI system at a later date. Only minimal pavement repairs to repair airfield lighting. No major pavement repairs will be accomplished.6) Repair/Replace North LSO-OLS Power and Remove Airfield Obstructions

The underground electrical infrastructure, including cable, conduits, and junction boxes are significantly deteriorated and hazardous for maintenance personnel. Below ground vaults at the OLS-LSO sites have abandoned underground transformers and switches. The structures and tops are deteriorated. The OLS-LSO utility structures are airfield shoulder obstructions and operational hazards.

The project involves replacement of the transformer at the North Vault and replacement of the underground wiring and conduits in separate conduits and junctions from the airfield lighting system. Electrical power is proposed to be three phase 4,160v or 2,400v single phase power for airfield dedicated lighting and NAVAIDs. The electrical supply transformer will be connected to the backup generatorat the North Vault. Wiring will be extended to the Weather Station to allow theremoval and demolition of abandoned ASR Building and generator that feed power to the Weather Station.

Items: Demolition LSO-OLS Sites, secondary electrical rack, conduit, encased duct, junction structure, pads, pad mount transformers, disconnect rack, receptacles and disconnect.
