Oct. 7, 2013: Siemens to Implement Energy Conservation Measures at Coast Guard Base

With Energy Savings Performance Contract, Siemens Guarantees Savings

ARLINGTON, Va. — Siemens Government Technologies Inc. announced that the United States Coast Guard awarded the company a $5.3 million task order to install and implement energy conservation upgrades at the U.S. Coast Guard Base in Elizabeth City, N.C.

Using an energy savings performance contract (ESPC) from the U.S. Department of Energy, the cost of the project will be funded by the energy savings guaranteed by Siemens.

The energy efficiency upgrades being implemented by Siemens Industry Inc.’s Building Technologies division include boiler and burner conversions for heating improvements, installing a building automation system across the base, mechanical HVAC improvements, and water conservation measures which are estimated to generate energy savings on average of $540,000 annually over the 14-year contract term.

“Siemens is committed to delivering mission success affordably and efficiently for our government customers,” said Judy Marks, president and CEO, Siemens Government Technologies. “Through the implementation of these broad energy conservation measures (ECMs), we will ensure simultaneous energy savings and infrastructure enhancements for Base Elizabeth City.”

The project is expected to reduce electricity consumption on the base by more than 1.1 million kilowatt hours annually, while also eliminating 78,000 gallons of fuel oil use and 32,000 gallons of liquid propane use each year. Water conservation initiatives are anticipated to save over 3 million gallons of water. The positive environmental impact is equivalent to reducing CO2 emissions by more than 3.7 million pounds per year.
