RESTON, Va. — Energy-efficient infrastructure improvements by Siemens Government Technologies will produce $1.5 million in energy savings in the first year for Army Garrison Ansbach.
The work at the U.S. base in Germany is through a budget neutral $24.8 million energy savings performance contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Engineering and Support Center in Huntsville, Siemens said. Government Technologies is the company’s federally focused U.S. arm.
“Our team looks forward to helping USAG Ansbach achieve energy savings while incorporating renewable energy generation with reduced operating and maintenance costs across its operations,“ said CEO and President John Ustica. “We are proud of our continued work for the Army in Europe and look forward to additional opportunities to help them meet energy and climate goals well into the future.“
The Army‘s investment in energy efficient upgrades and enhancements are fully paid for through the reduction in energy costs over the full contract term.
Army Garrison Ansbach provides support to the 12th Combat Aviation Brigade, the community’s largest tenant unit, and supports a total current population of more than 7,000 soldiers, civilians and family members.
The total project provides long-term improvements to USAG Ansbach’s operations and infrastructure while also improving installation safety and reducing energy costs. Siemens will also provide vital operations, maintenance, repair and replacement services as appropriate throughout the life cycle of the project.
