Thule Air Base is solely powered by diesel power generation, running on JP-8 jet fuel. Their generators date back to the 50’s and 60’s, and are highly reliable medium speed machines with many, many runtime hours on them.
When LEC Founder, Randy Leman first started his career at caterpillar, if a customer wanted to control a generator, a switchgear engineer would have to interconnect maybe 100 wires to that generator. It was an extremely cumbersome process. However, in 2006, when Randy Leman was working for APT, he had a concept for ethernet backbone switchgear, which traveled with him across four, different jobs until he founded LEC when he founded and applied the ethernet backbone switchgear concept.
In 2011, LEC president Randy Leman went to KAF (the Kandahar Airfield) for one month with fellow engineers Greg and Oscar. Kandahar Air Field is an old Soviet air base that was taken over by the US after Russia’s exit from Afghanistan. It is then utilized as a UN air base with all kinds of countries and nationalities represented there.
