Project Summary

Schneider Electric (SE) was awarded the project to build a 10 MW microgrid on the Yokota U.S. Air Base in Japan that includes a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant as part of the U.S. Government’s Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPC). This project is one of many that the government has undertaken as part of its aggressive energy efficiency, resiliency and sustainability initiative.

SE, in turn, hired CAI as equipment supplier and integrator on this project due to CAI’s comprehensive experience of building an 80 MW greenfield-to-turnkey powerplant in the Republic of Benin.

As supplier-integrator, CAI sourced four units of Jenbacher’s JGC616 engine generators rated at 2680kW, Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG), and electrical control module, coordinated the shipping, interconnected equipment and auxiliaries into a cohesive system, supervised the installation, start-up, commissioning and training.
