Honeywell wins ESPC contract from USAF
The US Air Force (UASF) has awarded Honeywell a $243 million facility modernisation project at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City, the company announced on 27 March.
The project - the largest energy savings performance contract (ESPC) ever awarded by the USAF - includes efficiency upgrades and renewable energy measures that will help cut energy use and save operational costs.
The project is a joint effort by Tinker, Honeywell, the Defence Logistics Agency Energy, headquarters Air Force Materiel Command and the Air Force Civil Engineer Centre.
Work will focus on improvements to production facilities at the Oklahoma City - Air Logistics Complex. Honeywell will upgrade infrastructure and industrial processes at the base's production facilities to make the buildings more energy and operationally efficient. This will include modernising manufacturing lines to eliminate wasted ventilation and increase worker safety, updating wastewater treatment systems to provide equipment control and alarm monitoring, installing two new 2,000-ton chillers to increase the reliability of the cooling system, upgrading paint booths to reduce energy used by the painting process, decentralising the steam heating plant with a distributed heat system to lower energy use, installing more efficient LED lighting with wireless controls, and installing smart meters to more closely monitor and track building energy consumption.
Honeywell will also add new buildings on the base into the base's existing Honeywell's Enterprise Buildings Integrator - a building management system that manages and controls heating, cooling and metering equipment. After the upgrades are completed, the company will provide maintenance and service to building systems.
