Honeywell And The U.S. Army Tackle Infrastructure Improvements At Largest U.S. Arsenal
January 23, 2014
Honeywell and the U.S. Army announced a $61 million infrastructure modernization project at the Rock Island Arsenal Joint Manufacturing Technology Center (pictured above). The project will support critical infrastructure improvements at the industrial facility that will cut energy use by approximately 35 percent, and generate up to $5.3 million in annual energy and operational savings.
Honeywell guarantees the improvements will generate the target savings, which should repay the investment used to fund the work. As a result, the project requires no capital or additional taxpayer dollars upfront. It's the largest energy-retrofit project approved by the Corps.
“Why pay bills that are higher than necessary because of energy waste?” said Paul Orzeske, president of Honeywell Building Solutions. “By improving overall efficiency, we're able to use part of the current utility spend to solve complex infrastructure challenges. JMTC is a cornerstone of the community, and its aggressive approach to energy management will help ensure its legacy of service and support to the military and country.”
