Siemens Partners With Bechtel And AECOM To Win Four Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contracts For U.S. Army’s $7 Billion Renewable And Alternative Energy Power Production Program

Siemens Government Technologies, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, working with the Army Energy Initiatives Task Force (EITF) has completed the initial awards under all four Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Task Order Contracts (MATOC) for geothermal, solar, wind and biomass technologies to support renewable energy on Defense Department installations. The four MATOCs have multiple awardees but the Siemens team was the only one that was selected for all of them.

This MATOC will be used to procure reliable, locally generated, renewable and alternative energy for DoD installations through power purchase agreements (PPA). The contracts provide a three-year base with seven one-year options, for a total ordering period of 10 years. The $7 billion contract capacity will be expended for PPAs to procure energy during a period of up to 30 years from renewable energy generation systems that are designed, financed, constructed, operated and maintained by contractors using private sector financing.

“As the only company to be awarded all four renewable technologies on this landmark MATOC, Siemens has assembled a core team of trusted and reliable partners who bring more than 100 years of combined industry experience in the energy market,” said Judy Marks, president and CEO, Siemens Government Technologies, Inc. “Together, with best-in-class subcontractors Bechtel and AECOM, we will deliver mission success by responding to task orders with efficiency, innovation and effectiveness to accomplish the Army’s goals of increasing their use of renewable energy, enhancing infrastructure resilience and energy security, while decreasing energy costs.”

In April 2012, the White House announced the Defense Department was making one of the largest commitments to clean energy in history, by setting a goal to deploy 3 gigawatts of renewable energy -- including solar, wind, biomass or geothermal -- on Army, Navy and Air Force installations by 2025. That is enough energy to power 750,000 homes. The Army's goal is 1 gigawatt of that total.
