Honeywell inks contract with Fort Dix

MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Honeywell’s Home and Building Control business has been awarded $18.1 million in Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs) by the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center to design and install high-efficiency boiler and building control systems for 116 buildings at the Fort Dix U.S. Army Reserve Installation near Wrightstown in southern New Jersey.

The new Fort Dix contracts are in addition to a $1.9 million lighting retrofit contract Honeywell implemented there in 1998.

Under the ESPC process, the company replaces existing energy systems in federal facilities with new equipment and energy management technology. Savings from the new systems pay for the cost of upgrades.

“As is the case with our other federal government customers,” said Kevin Gilligan, president of the Home and Building Control business, “the work we are carrying out for the U.S. Army Reserve will provide significant results through improvements that increase the overall quality of life, help the command comply with federal energy-reduction mandates, and result in long-term savings for the government and American taxpayers as well.”

The new contracts involve replacing the Fort Dix center’s two central boiler plants, which currently provide steam heat to buildings via an inefficient steam pipe system, with individual, high-efficiency boilers in each of the installation’s 116 buildings.

Replacing the centralized system with individual boilers will eliminate the energy currently lost as the steam is distributed, resulting in significantly improved energy efficiency, the company said.

Honeywell will also install an Excel 5000® building management system to provide centralized, state-of-the-art control of the heating system.
