Siemens Government Technologies has won a $5.3 million task order to help implement energy and water conservation methods at a U.S. Coast Guard base in Elizabeth City, N.C.

The Coast Guard aims to generate $540, 000 in energy cost savings per year under the 14-year energy savings performance contract and fund the cost of the contract with those savings, Siemens Government Technologies said Thursday.

Judy Marks, Siemens Government Technologies president and CEO, said the company will work to help the base upgrade its infrastructure by implementing energy conservation measures.

Siemens Industry’s building technologies division will upgrade the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems and implement new boiler and burner conversions.

Base Elizabeth City will also receive a new building automation system.

Siemens intends to reduce the base’s electricity consumption by more than 1.1 million kilowatt hours, 78, 000 gallons of fuel oil use and 32, 000 gallons of liquid propane use each year.

Other goals include saving 3 million gallons of water and 3.7 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions per year, the company said.

The base houses a logistics center, training facility and an air station and provides support for maritime, environmental protection, and search-and-rescue missions.
