Siemens To Provide Energy Efficiency Upgrades To Manchester Memorial Hospital

Under a comprehensive $4.9 million energy savings performance contract (ESPC) with Eastern Connecticut Health Network (ECHN), the Building Technologies division of Siemens Industry, Inc. (Siemens) announced that Manchester Memorial Hospital should save nearly $500,000 a year in utility consumption. Manchester Memorial Hospital should receive one-time electric utility rebates totaling $592,451 and, in addition, is also awaiting gas incentives on the project that are being reviewed by the utility company.

An affiliate of ECHN, Manchester Memorial Hospital, in Manchester, Conn., is a 249-bed acute care facility offering comprehensive inpatient and outpatient medical and surgical services to communities east of Hartford, Conn.

“We have been consistently diligent in our efforts to find ways to reduce our costs; going green not only saves dollars, but also saves the environment,” said Peter J. Karl, president and CEO of ECHN. “With our strategic partner, Siemens, we are achieving this goal, creating a healthier, more environmentally friendly and cost-efficient facility that will better serve our patients and staff for decades to come.”

At the heart of the project, slated for completion by June 2013, is the replacement of aging oil-fired boilers with four new, extremely efficient, high-pressure low-emission dual-fuel boilers that will be primarily fired by natural gas. Siemens is managing all aspects of the project and will remove the old boilers and bring the new units online with minimal disruption to hospital operations. The new boilers are expected to save energy, improve reliability and significantly reduce maintenance and repair costs, which will help reduce the hospital’s fuel expenses up to 35 percent.

For the past five years, Siemens has worked with ECHN and Manchester Memorial to implement this comprehensive plan to save energy, which also includes the upgrade and retrofit of building lighting systems, water conservation measures, a new upgraded energy management system, and new high-efficiency chillers.
