Siemens Government Technologies to Extend Energy Efficiency and Readiness Efforts for Army Depots
Washington | October 30, 2018
WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Siemens Government Technologies (SGT), Inc., has recently received two separate contract awards under Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) for the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, which is a major element of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Siemens will further improve infrastructure and enhance readiness, building on energy efficiency programs it has already implemented at the Army’s premier rotary wing repair facility in Corpus Christi, Texas, and at its renowned tank plant in Lima, Ohio, under approximately $26.8 million and $34 million awards, respectively.
Corpus Christi Army Depot’s (CCAD) highly trained personnel perform essential readiness and maintenance work for the Army’s rotary wing fleet every day. One of the essential tools they rely on are blade balancing test stands to perform dynamic balancing of rotor blades that enable flight across the Army’s fleet of Black Hawk helicopters. SGT will lead a refurbishment program on blade balance stand #2, to improve current system reliability and uptime, as well as enhance the safety of personnel required to perform balancing in the surrounding area.
The Army’s Joint Systems Manufacturing Center – Lima is renowned for its production of the M1 Abrams tank and its size – encompassing a footprint of 1.6 million square feet and 40 buildings. Through prior contract phases incorporating smart infrastructure technology applications from Siemens’ Building Technologies division, energy efficiency upgrades have included the elimination of coal with conversion to natural gas for heating, improved lighting, and the installation of a unified utility monitoring control system allowing for more efficient equipment operation, decreased maintenance and longer lifespan. The new contract phase will extend efforts even further with additional building envelope improvements and the incorporation of Siemens’ Energy Management division technologies for improved reliability and readiness through utility distribution upgrades, rate switch and power factor correction.
“We are honored to be selected by the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, to perform critical energy efficiency work and infrastructure improvements at two of their most relied upon facilities in the world to support their operational missions,” said Tina Dolph, president and CEO of Siemens Government Technologies. “We recognize the essential role the Army depots perform every day in maintaining and sustaining the force and we take great pride in helping the Army achieve their energy conservation and sustainability goals.”
