In November 2019, as part of this initiative, Siemens Government Technologies was selected for a seat on a utility monitoring and control systems (UMCS V) contract through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Engineering and Support Center. The seven-year, multiple award contract has a $1.2 billion ceiling and is set to end in 2026.
The scope of this program includes design, procurement and installation, and maintenance and service of heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment; chiller/boiler system controls integration; fire alarm and fire protection systems; supervisory control and data acquisition systems; utility metering; and other Automated Control Systems. Siemens Government Technologies will install comprehensive, scalable, and secure utility monitoring and control systems into the facilities.
Working with Army officials and project coordinators, Siemens Government Technologies is tailoring automation and control solutions to each facility’s unique needs. Designing solutions to simplify operations and monitoring of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and lighting, the Siemens team is identifying opportunities to improve energy efficiency, reduce operational costs, increase digitalization, and enhance comfortability.
