Eaton Contracted to Boost U.S. Military Electrical System Efficiency


10/16/2012 1:00 PM

Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced it has received multiple service contracts from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to evaluate electrical systems at U.S. Department of Defense facilities. The projects, which include recommending improvements to conserve resources and developing standardized and simplified designs, have an estimated contract value of $35 million and a completion date in March 2017.

At diverse locations within the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, and the U.S. Territories, Eaton will perform detailed investigation and planning and help the military remotely monitor and control equipment meters and systems that would otherwise require periodic visual observation or additional personnel. These efforts will improve the efficiency of utility monitoring and control systems (UMCS), building automation systems (BAS), fire alarm systems, fire protection systems, supervisory control and data acquisition systems, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

“Energy efficiency is directly tied to measuring, monitoring and managing energy usage,” said Paul Cody, vice president and general manager, Electrical Service and Systems Division, Eaton Corporation. “This initiative will help defense facilities analyze energy usage, improve efficiency and provide insight into cost savings and downtime prevention.”
