Navy is Finalist in Platt Global Energy Awards
October 27, 2009

According to information available from the The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), the Department of the Navy (DoN) is a finalist in two energy categories for the 2009 Platts Global Energy Awards, an annual competition recognizing top achievers in the energy industry. The Navy was named a finalist in the “ENR Energy Construction Project of the Year” and the “Green Energy Initiative of the Year” categories.

The Engineering News Record Energy Construction Project of the Year nomination is the result of Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka Japan’s (CFAY) new cogeneration power facility. The largest overseas U.S. naval installation in the world, CFAY’s previous steam plant consumed more than 8 million gallons of liquid fuel each year and provided inadequate output for its demand. The new plant incorporates three gas turbine generators, three reciprocating engine generators, major upgrades to the steam generation and distribution systems, and a new gas line to the base. The facility is designed to deliver reliable energy for the bases utility demands and meet its capacity needs.

The Navy is also a finalist in the category Green Energy Initiative of the Year for its work in developing alternative forms of energy such as wind energy generation, solar photovoltaic energy generation, solar thermal energy systems, geothermal energy generation and ground source heat pumps.
