The Chesapeake Division, Naval Facilities Engineering Command CHESNAV-FACENGCOM, provides support for the U.S. Coast Guard Lighthouse Automation and Modernization Program LAMP. The ultimate goal of LAMP is the total automation of all Coast guard Lighthouses, thus permitting the removal of all Coast Guard personnel from these outposts. Support for this project comprises the installation of underwater power cable to a number of these lighthouses that have offshore locations and which priorities demand should be powered from shore power sources rather than from untended diesel generators in each lighthouse. CHESNAVFACENGCOM has already conducted feasibility studies, analyzed costs, investigated sites, surveyed cable routes, procured cable, furnished project management, and installed cable for several of the lighthouses being converted under this modernization program. The current project involves the installation of power cables to three lighthouses within the jurisdiction of the 13th Coast Guard District. This District, headquartered in Seattle, Washington, is in the process of automating two, manned, offshore lighthouses, and in converting one offshore lighthouse, presently unmanned, to shore power.
