USMC Iwakuni, Japan
The ITW GSE Military Dual Output Converter has been installed at the US Marine Corp Station in Iwakuni, Japan. The latest contract is for both indoor and outdoor configurations.
The outdoor model, which meets NEMA 4 requirements, provides power to aircraft parked on the apron outside the hangar. The Dual Output Converter provides the military end user with a tremendous amount of flexibility. Parking spaces in the hangar or on the apron no longer need to be designated specifically for F-35 or a legacy aircraft. Whether it is an F-16, F-18, F-35, or some other type of aircraft parked in a particular spot, the Dual Output Converter can supply the necessary electrical power to that aircraft. This eliminates the need to move aircraft around in order to park one type of aircraft in one particular spot.
