Ascension Island

​​​​

Personnel from the Power Systems Engineering Department, in conjunction with the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, and other partners, designed a combined, 7-MW prime power, diesel power and desalinization plant to support mission operations at Ascension Island for the U.S. Air Force Space Command. This project also included installation of a 60,000-gal/da​​y flash evaporator desalinization plant.
