Norfolk Naval Shipyard Wins Two Energy Awards

Friday, October 04, 2002
Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY) recently won the Secretary of the Navy Energy Award (Industrial Category), and the Department of Energy's FEMP (Federal Energy Management Program) Award for Energy and Water Conservation for Fiscal Year 2001. This was the first time NNSY has been honored with both of these prestigious awards during the same reporting period, according to Cmdr. Jean Dumlao, Facilities and Maintenance Officer and Staff Civil Engineer at the shipyard. Dumlao attributes NNSY's success in winning these awards to the outstanding teamwork in her division, the innovation of her Utility and Energy Branch, led by Tim Wood, and the cadre of shipyard superintendents, building custodians and energy monitors who have aggressively promoted the shipyard's energy conservation awareness program. "We convey the objectives of our conservation programs, solicit customer input and apply the latest technologies to achieve winning results," Wood said. He also acknowledged the ongoing partnerships with Public Works Center Norfolk, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Norfolk, Atlantic Division and Naval Meteorological Command, Norfolk, in support of NNSY's energy program. Energy projects implemented at the shipyard in FY 01, at a one-time investment of $2.8 million, have annual savings of more than $850,000, a 3.3 year payback. These savings result from the following facility improvements: steam pipe upgrades by PWC Norfolk; installation of industrial building digital temperature controls; retrofits to existing fluorescent light fixtures with energy-efficient replacement parts; integrated computer controls for compressed air systems; new automatic roll-up door controls; occupancy sensor lighting controls; and LED exit sign retrofits. This latest recognition follows previous energy and water conservation awards that NNSY has won: the FY 98 and FY 99 SECNAV Energy Awards for Industrial Facilities, and the FY 97 DoE/FEMP Award for Energy and Water Conservation. "These awards don't happen by themselves--it takes the collective efforts of all of us to conserve energy and, in turn, taxpayer dollars," said NNSY Commander Capt. Mark A. Hugel. Source: NAVSEA
