American Electric of Jacksonville has been contracted to replace high voltage electric cabinet at Navel Station Mayport, a major navel installation located in Jacksonville, Florida. We have been contracting with NS Mayport for 17 years meeting military requirements and maintaining electrical applications.
The cabinet had rusted out on top (as seen in photo by tarp on top). Being so close to the ocean, the salty sea breezes can cause extreme corrosion. To help protect better against the elements, it has been replaced by a 404 stainless steel cabinet, painted mussel green, a navy specification.
This job was completed by American Electric on a Saturday due to electricity outages that have occurred throughout the area to minimize downtime in adjacent building.
WW Gay Mechanical Contractor, from Jacksonville, was contracted to move the cabinets using a crane to pick out the old and set in the new.
American Electric‘s electricians reworked high voltage cables to be accepted by the new cabinet.
These cables were then hypotted (monitoring to ensure the cables do not ground from the high voltages) and re-certified as they were approved by CE Testing, a military certified company from Macclenny located just west of Jacksonville.
We look forward to future jobs with Navel Station Mayport. We are proud to be contracted and provide the best electrical service to support our military.
