OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
The CC weighs approximately 16,500-lbs when packed. Lift and move
the container only with material handling equipment of at least 17,000-lb
capacity. Observe all safety precautions. Unpacking the components
requires at least four persons.
This section outlines the siting requirements of the CC, and describes the assembly of its components.
It also provides procedures for the preparation and operation of the CC under usual conditions. Refer to
Unloading and moving the CC requires a forklift of at least 17,000-lb capacity. Use the built-in fork lift
pockets on the container to move the CC.
For storage, CC containers may be stacked 2 high, as long as the bottom unit is positioned on a firm,
level surface. Hoisting requires 17,000-lb minimum capacity hoists and slings connected to the corner
fittings of the ISO container.
Read all warnings, cautions and notes within this section and follow procedures outlined herein to ensure
safe operation of the CC and associated equipment.
Site Selection (Refer to the illustration on the following page)
The selected site should be large enough (25 ft x 100 ft minimum) to accommodate the CC in a 64 ft
TEMPER with vestibules. The ISO container should be placed approximately 20 feet from the erected
TEMPER, on the side away from the vestibules, for use as secure storage. The selected site must not
slope more than 5 degrees and must be free of large holes, trees, rocks and debris. There should be
sufficient drainage in case of rain.
Proximity to a power source is also required. In addition, the power supply cables should not be subjected
to vehicular traffic and should be out of the way of facility users. Additional space is required to position a
30 KW (minimum) TQG (if used) to supply power to the CC. Ideally the CC should be positioned within
the distance of the furnished utility cables as follows:
60 Amp Power Cable
Site preparation includes preparing an area that is level, firm and free of debris, stones or underbrush.
Ensure that there are no nearby trees or overhanging limbs or any river that may flood and present a
hazard to the CC. Ensure there is sufficient space to complex the needed number of TEMPER sections.
The area should be accessible to tactical vehicles. If necessary, dig a drainage ditch around the area to
provide adequate drainage. If possible, the area should be sheltered from high winds.
