EGSA Member Brings Game-Changing Grid Power to Mobile Generator Sets for the US Military
How productive are conversations around the water cooler? Ironically, as water cooler technology improves, so does the level of discussion that occurs around them. This was especially true for two engineers from L3 Westwood, a supplier of power generation equipment to the U.S. military, who were having a brainstorming conversation around a water cooler. Little did the engineers know that a marketeer would be eavesdropping on their water cooler conversation and make their idea a reality. That conversation - one that involved developing a means of connecting generator sets into a ring bus configuration and cycling them on and off as load demands - resulted in a new product that will save millions of gallons of fuel, and more importantly, reduce the amount of casualties on the battlefield.
