US Navy, P-259 P-8A Aircraft Apron Expansion
When a station receives six new P-8A Poseidons, some infrastructure improvements will be necessary.
Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, WA
Our team helped the navy when they assigned six new P-8A Poseidon aircraft to Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. Naturally, this required some infrastructure improvements to accommodate the aircraft. The improvements included an expanded aircraft parking apron, relocated and updated Liquid Oxygen (LOX) Facility to support the P-8A and remaining P3 aircraft, relocated Sonobuoy Storage Building, new ground support equipment building/shop, and a state-of-the-art Corrosion Control Aircraft Rinse Rack to increase the useful life of the aircraft.
P2S led a team of 14 subconsultants including architecture; civil, structural, electrical and geotechnical engineering; surveying, hazmat, fuel piping, and more. Design for the LOX facility was done per the requirements listed in MIL HDBK 1024-3 “Oxyacetylene and Nitrogen and Breathing Facilities.” Some of the specific features included parking pads for nitrogen generators, concrete pads for LOX equipment to comply with NFPA requirements, design of the building to comply with the MIL HDBK requirements, fire suppression for the building, and the oxygen generators, vaporizers, storage tanks, associated piping and appurtenances, controls, cleaning of piping before startup, and associated commissioning documents for the contractor providing commissioning of the facility.View More Federal Projects
