June 2016: AEENCC Luncheon Meeting – Tour of Naval Support Activity Annapolis

Members of NSA Annapolis, Baltimore Gas & Electric, and Constellation Energy will provide information about the plant itself and the specific energy conservation measures that were implemented at this site to make it such a successful project.

After presentation there will be a guided tour of the water treatment plant, central heating plant, and chilled water plant.  This will be followed by a Q&A session at Rickover Hall.

The Naval Support Activity Annapolis has recently undergone an Utility Energy Service Contract (UESC) water conservation project that will reduce operation costs, reduce disposal costs, improve sludge removal, recapture filter backwash, reduce the amount of chemicals used, and reduce the overall energy consumption of the plant.  These reductions should result in $1.5 million of annual savings.  The project was completed with assistance from Baltimore Gas & Electric at NSA Annapolis.

This project is the first in a series of Naval District Washington’s regional contributions toward the Great Green Fleet initiative.  This initial project has a 5 year payback and will provide significant savings after the upfront cost is paid back.
