NAVFAC EXWC MUSE and Army Prime Power School Join Forces in Rehabilitation of Generators Used for Technician Training

09/09/19 01:04 PM

FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (Sept. 9, 2019) — Four Seabee Technicians from Naval Facilities (NAVFAC) Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (EXWC) Mobile Utilities Support Equipment (MUSE) ventured to Fort Leonard Wood to replace four power generators at the Army Prime Power School.

Beginning in January, five soldiers from the 249th Engineering Battalion from Fort Leonard Wood and three MUSE technicians worked jointly at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) Port Hueneme to undertake the rehabilitation process. Over the course of 21 days, the inter-service team brought the generators back to operating condition.

The units originally were maintained at MUSE to support naval missions, but due to their degradation, they became non-deployable and were waiting to be disposed of. These specific units are no longer manufactured, sparking the interest of the Army Prime Power School to rehabilitate the units into working condition to be used for training purposes.

“The equipment the power units are replacing were used to train Navy MUSE technicians and Army 12P for over 20 years,” said Chief Warrant Officer 5, Donald Bond, Army Prime Power School Commander. “The more reliable and modern our equipment is the higher quality our training will be—this is our modernization effort.”

Mechanical inspection of cylinders, camshafts, crankshafts, injectors and valves, and electrical inspections of transformers, circuit breakers, and alternators were thoroughly conducted. Major components such as turbochargers, head gaskets and rocker arm shafts were also replaced.

“It is beyond rewarding to apply the knowledge received at the Army Prime Power School to use it to directly facilitate the rehabilitation of generators students will use for years to come,” said Construction Electrician First Class, Amber Cantrell. 

Both specialized branches—MUSE and the Army Prime Power School—have built a strong sense of comradery after partnering to rehabilitate the generators, in addition to the Army Prime Power School supplying the U.S. Navy with well-trained, technical experts in their respective fields.
