    Five Seabees from Naval Facilities Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (NAVFAC EXWC) Mobile Utilities Support Equipment (MUSE) Division deployed to Naval Air Station North Island, Coronado, CA. Their mission was to install six electrical transformation substations to support the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) for the upcoming Chief of Naval Operations (CNO)-directed Planned Incremental Availability (PIA) maintenance exercise. Installed MUSE units were requested to provide electrical power to support maintenance equipment during the ship's maintenance process at Pier J onboard Naval Air Station North Island

    MUSE technicians completed over 2,500 electrical and mechanical inspections of the units over the course of three weeks—verifying equipment readiness for the task. On site, Seabees worked hand-in- hand with local NAVFAC employees, including the public works high voltage department, and the pier operations team, ensuring the mission will be accomplished on time.

    The NAVFAC EXWC MUSE division is based in Port Hueneme, CA. MUSE technicians are selected from all Seabee rates to attend the Army Prime Power School, located in Fort Leonard Wood, MO. The rigorous year-long school prepares graduates to meet utility shortfalls and energy requirements around the world.

    NAVFAC EXWC is the Navy’s premier activity for facilities and expeditionary technology solutions, engineering services, equipment logistics, and products needed to equip the fleet and meet warfighter requirements.
