PHASE ONE

PROBLEM

Robins Air Force base is part of the Air Force Material Command (AFMC), a key function of which is aircraft maintenance. Part of sustaining a world-class aircraft fleet is insuring the planes are repainted periodically and the painting process is a heavy user of compressed air. Southland Energy determined the client’s existing plants were in dire need of upgrades in order to reduce energy usage and improve the quality, accuracy and reliability of the compressed air supply to over 40 mission critical aircraft maintenance facilities and avoid significant annual outage costs.

SOLUTION

Southland Energy partnered with serving utility Georgia Power to provide project development, design, build and maintain services to reduce energy consumption, along with the risk of interruption to production caused by the compressed air system. The integrated effort, which was a federal Utility Energy Services Contract (UESC), implemented 10 essential energy conservation measures, including the design, development and maintenance of a new, $23M central compressed air plant (4000 HP), as well the retrofitting of two existing, interconnected plants (5500 HP) with new piping, electrical service, compressors, air dryers, automation packages, air storage systems, and leak repair. The plants were designed and installed to provide a capacity of 2N and all work was completed while existing plant service remained 100% operational.
