Client Needs

Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island installed a competitor’s (non-ECS) in-vessel composting system in the 1990s. Technical support had been an issue for some time, and in 2015 the vintage custom control system stopped working. The compost facility needed a company that would provide:

  • A replacement automated aeration control and monitoring system to manage their existing 8 vessel system
  • New variable frequency drives (VFDs), sensors, motorized dampers and other components
  • Reliable service and ongoing technical support to assist with operations

ECS Solution

This project was a perfect application for the CompTroller™ 3.0. Our off-the-shelf technology got them up and running quickly, and we provided a whole suite of improved control and monitoring features.

The entire upgrade which included installing panels, re-landing field wires, installing new pressure sensors, testing equipment and providing specific training on the new CompTroller™ software and a review of composting procedures with operators and manager took three days onsite.
