Georgia Marine Base Will Be Net Zero

Navy

Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) has awarded a 23-year, $170 million energy savings performance contract (ESPC) to Exelon subsidiary Constellation for work at the Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB) in Albany, GA.

The base will become net-zero, meaning that the amount of energy used will be the same or less than what is generated on site, the press release says.

The project includes installation of an 8.5 MW biomass-fueled, steam-to-electricity generation, high-efficiency transformers and lighting and boiler upgrades, the press release says. The contract also includes systems controls for a landfill gas electricity generator and controls for centralized monitoring and operation of electricity generation and distribution.

The Navy is heeding the administration’s call to reduce energy consumption. Earlier this month, Jacksonville.com report that the Mayport Naval Station in Jacksonville, FL, will save about $600,000 annually through a water and energy efficiency program, .

The Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast awarded a $12.8 million contract last week to TECO Inc., which is based in Tampa. The project, which is slated to be done by November, 2017, will impact about 50 facilities.
