Jeff Brody

An Ameresco subsidiary has won a $171M task order to build, operate and maintain energy conservation systems at a U.S. Navy shipyard located in Kittery, Maine.

Ameresco Select will update or replace Portsmouth Naval Shipyard air compressors, motors, pumps, steam traps, power plants and energy security microgrid, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Naval Facilities Engineering Command received two proposals for the task order, which is part of a multiple-award energy savings performance contract managed by the Department of Energy.

Under the ESPC, a contractor will finance efforts under the project's 28-month construction and implementation phase with private funds.

The Pentagon expects Ameresco Select to complete work by January 2044.
