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.
