FORT BRAGG, NC — Honeywell Automation & Control Solutions (ACS) Service recently began work on an energy-conservation upgrade project at the U.S. Army post intended to save $1.8 million per year. Under the same contract, Honeywell will also manage the 15 central heating and cooling plants at the post starting in April 2002.

The company will install more than $11.2 million in energy-efficient equipment and operation improvements, including new air conditioning chillers, cooling towers, pumps, hot water systems, high-efficiency motors, and energy management digital controls at chilled water and heating plants.

The operational assignment, which has a total value of more than $38 million over 12 years, calls for Honey-well service staff to run and maintain the central plants that provide Fort Bragg — which has a population of 44,000 soldiers — with heating, air conditioning, and hot water.

The new projects are the latest efforts in a partnership among Honeywell, US Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, and Fort Bragg that began in 1997 under the Huntsville Center’s Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) program and now totals $51.6 million in capital improvements to facilitate the infrastructure at the post. According to Honeywell, when fully implemented, the projects are expected to yield about $8.5 million per year in demand- and supply-side energy savings, which include upgraded equipment and changes in energy procurement practices.
