Port Frederick, Hoonah, Alaska
The Electrical Engineering component of the Division of Environmental Health and Engineering (DEHE) covers all aspects of electrical engineering design, beginning at the conceptual stage and continuing to final inspection. Electrical engineering at DEHE provides the design engineer with many exciting challenges due to Alaska's unique geography and climates. One project, for example, may require resistance to corrosion from salt water spray, while another project may need to be designed for temperatures below -40 degrees Fahrenheit. DEHE's electricians construct designs provided by our engineers, who work closely with field personnel to ensure the quality of our electrical installations.
Control Panel Designs
At DEHE, we design all of our control panels for construction at our ETL Listed shop. The high cost of electricity for many of our facilities necessitates control panel designs that provide energy savings and minimal maintenance. Recent changes in regulatory requirements mean that some facilities designed by DEHE include automated data acquisition systems. Other facilities use Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems because of automatic control and remote monitoring requirements.

A Rewarding Career
As a design engineer, the greatest reward is to see the finished product: what you imagined, planned, discussed with other engineers, put on paper and provided to a highly qualified and motivated construction crew to build.
