It was announced by Arlington, Va.-based Siemens Government Technologies that it has been awarded a $24 million contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Engineering and Support Center to address water and energy infrastructure needs and improve energy efficiency at the Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD). CCAD was established in 1961 on the Texas coast. The energy conservation measures that will be administered by Siemens will address the depot’s infrastructure needs due to age and the harsh coastal environment.
The White House has mandated that federal facilities reduce their energy consumption by 2.5% per year and potable water consumption by 2% per year by fiscal year 2025. The energy savings brought about by the energy conservation measures being installed will be used to fund the project. Siemens will employ the help of small business partners to perform the infrastructure upgrades.
Barbara Humpton, President and Chief Executive Officer at Siemens Government Technologies, Inc. stated, “The Siemens team is proud to partner with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and apply our innovative energy and environmental expertise to help meet its mission to save energy and use renewable energy. As the largest single user of energy in the U.S., the Federal Government is leading by example through its commitment to improving the energy efficiency of America’s publicly-owned buildings, parks and historic sites, reducing carbon emissions and enhancing the nation’s energy security.”
