Energy Project to Save $430,000 Annually at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay

Kings Bay, Fla. (NNS) -- Public Works Department (PWD) Kings Bay completed its final inspection of a $4.5 million energy conservation project for Naval Submarine Base (NSB) Kings Bay's Strategic Weapons Facility Atlantic (SWFLANT) August 22.

The project was the result of a Utility Energy Services Contract with Atlanta Gas and Light Resources, Inc. and its subcontractor Energy Systems Group that is expected to save the NSB Kings Bay more than $430,000 annually in utility costs.

Work for this project included replacement of existing lighting and water fixtures with more efficient units and upgrades to heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems across seven buildings aboard NSB Kings Bay.

"As part of this project, the Maintenance Support Building at the Strategic Weapons Facility Atlantic (SWFLANT) had the existing HVAC system retrofitted with UV lights to inhibit microbial growth and increase or maintain the heat transfer efficiency across the cooling coils," said Joe Stephenson, PWD construction manager. "We also installed 21 high efficiency pumps that will will provide for efficiencies at the paint booth and hot water for heating and dehumidification."

Stephenson explained that energy projects like this make significant contributions toward the mandated requirements of the Energy Independence Security Act of 2007 and Executive Order 13423 which require specific reductions in energy in federal facilities of at least 30 percent by fiscal year 2015.

This is the third energy conservation project this team has worked on together at NSB Kings Bay.

The Utility Energy Services Contract was awarded in August 2012.
