Siemens Selected for Multi-Million Dollar U.S. Navy Power Monitoring Project

ATLANTA, March 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Siemens Industry, Inc. (NYSE: SI) announced today it will be providing power metering equipment and services for the U.S. Navy’s Southwest Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project by teaming with AMERICAN SYSTEMS. The contract to furnish and install advanced electrical metering infrastructure at various locations throughout the Navy’s Southwest Region is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).

The U.S. Navy recently launched its Advanced Metering Infrastructure Program to establish an energy usage baseline, collect information on energy consumption and discover ways to reduce consumption and lower costs through the improved allocation of energy resources. This project also shows its ongoing commitment to the Energy Policy Act of 2005, a mandate requiring all federal agencies to install advanced metering devices that provide daily usage data across all installations.

Siemens is supplying advanced electrical power meters, WinPM.Net energy monitoring software as well as implementation engineering services. Siemens also received orders for project management services along with gas, water and steam flow meters that provide data to the WinPM.Net systems. The Siemens system will enable the allocation and management of electricity, natural gas, steam and water at each base location and provide that data to the Navy for further analysis.

“The U.S. Department of Defense is the single largest energy consumer in the federal government and has set an ambitious goal to improve tracking and analysis of where and how the Department is using energy,” said William C. Hoover, president and CEO of AMERICAN SYSTEMS. “The Department of the Navy is at the forefront of this effort with the AMI program, which will provide it with the necessary tools and intelligence to strategically manage and optimize its energy resources now and in the future.”

“This project exemplifies Siemens’ commitment to improving energy efficiency by offering the broadest range of energy management solutions and services,” says Daryl Dulaney, president and CEO of Siemens Industry, Inc. “It also demonstrates how Siemens is able to combine the strengths of its various divisions, such as Building Technologies and Industry Solutions, to easily deliver a complete solution to its customers.”
