MINNEAPOLIS — American Medical Systems® (AMS), a provider of devices and therapies for male and female pelvic health, was recently presented with a Trane Energy Efficiency Leader Award to recognize recent manufacturing facility upgrades to temperature controls at AMS.

After completing a preliminary analysis, AMS began implementing sustainable infrastructure improvements in January 2011. The upgrades included a chilled-water system and building automation controls to increase overall operational and energy efficiency, as well as improve building performance and day-to-day functionality.

AMS is one of only a few manufacturing facilities worldwide to receive such an award acknowledging its installation of new, high-efficiency solutions to help provide critical system reliability for round-the-clock temperature control. The new upgrades will ultimately help reduce energy costs by 20 percent and generate approximately $50,000 in rebates from Xcel Energy.

Trane presents Energy Efficiency Leader Awards to businesses like AMS that have made outstanding achievements in environmental sustainability as part of their commitment to becoming a high-performance building.

Mitchell Farrell, a district general manager for Trane, presented the award to Tom Rasmussen, vice president of operations at AMS, during a ceremony held at the company’s headquarters in Minnetonka, Minn.
