NAVFAC ESC Has Awarded a $250 Million Contract
October 21, 2008

The Naval Facilities Engineering Command’s Engineering Service
Center (NAVFAC ESC) has awarded a $250 million contract to three private firms to support the Advance Metering Infrastructure Program (AMI) at facilities worldwide.

The AMI Program allows the Navy and Marine Corps to monitor and control daily energy usage at military installations, ensuring cost-efficient allocation of energy resources, including water,
gas, steam, electricity and other commodities. The solution is an AMI network that provides two-way communication from the advanced meter (solid-state, IP enabled, open standards) to a
meter data management (MDM) center.

American Systems, Chantilly, VA; Square D, Palatine, IL; and Weston Solutions, San Antonio, TX will share the $250 million dollar award, one of the highest ever for a military energy management project. Each of the three selected contractors will design, test, procure, install and maintain numerous advanced metering solutions at naval shore facilities globally through September 2013. Funding is concurrent through that date. The Engineering Service Center is responsible for managing, through NAVFAC, the Navy’s AMI Program for the Commander, Naval Installations Command.
