Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has won a contract to help the U.S. Army implement energy conservation measures at the Rock Island Arsenal Joint Manufacturing Technology Center in Illinois.
The Army aims to save up to $5.3 million in energy and operational costs under the 20-year energy performance savings contract, Honeywell said Wednesday.
JMTC was constructed to produce metal equipment and parts for the Defense Department.
“This project lets us tackle our aging infrastructure head on — a difficult task in light of budget cutbacks — so we can operate as efficiently as possible and support mission readiness, ” said Col. David Luders, commander at RIA-JMTC.
Honeywell will install a heating, ventilation and air conditioning system and deploy plating and painting systems.
Other goals include reducing the facility’s power use by to 5.5 million kilowatt-hours per year and carbon dioxide emissions by up to 63 million pounds per year.
The $61 million JMTC modernization program is slated for completion in the first half of 2017.
