Company to perform energy-efficiency work at San Diego naval facility
LOS ANGELES, Nov 16, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, announced today that it has won a US$10.5-million task order to provide energy-efficiency services at a U.S. Navy facility in San Diego.
The work, which will include a base-wide lighting retrofit, construction of two new ultra-efficient central chilled water plants, expansion of the existing energy-management-control system and the installation of a photovoltaic system, will be conducted under AECOM's indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract with the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center.
The contract has a maximum value of US$50 million and allows AECOM to compete for design-build, energy-efficiency and renewable-energy projects at any federal facility within the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories and possessions.
When complete, the project is expected to reduce the facility's annual utility consumption by 4.7 million kilowatt hours, 48,000 therms, and 10.3 million gallons of water, resulting in annual utility, operations and maintenance cost savings of more than US$900,000. The project will also eliminate more than 3,600 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year.
