Siemens Industry Inc. will provide power metering equipment and services for the U.S. Navy’s Southwest Advanced Metering Infrastructure project by teaming with American Systems.

 

The contract to furnish and install advanced electrical metering infrastructure at various locations throughout the Navy’s Southwest Region is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).

 

The U.S. Navy recently launched its Advanced Metering Infrastructure Program to establish an energy usage baseline, collect information on energy consumption and discover ways to reduce consumption and lower costs through the improved allocation of energy resources.

 

Siemens is supplying advanced electrical power meters, WinPM.Net energy monitoring software as well as implementation engineering services. Siemens also received orders for project management services along with gas, water and steam flow meters that provide data to the WinPM.Net systems.

 

The Siemens system will enable the allocation and management of electricity, natural gas, steam and water at each base location and provide that data to the Navy for further analysis.

 

“The U.S. Department of Defense is the single largest energy consumer in the federal government and has set an ambitious goal to improve tracking and analysis of where and how the Department is using energy,” said William C. Hoover, president and CEO of American Systems.

 

“This project exemplifies Siemens’ commitment to improving energy efficiency by offering the broadest range of energy management solutions and services,” says Daryl Dulaney, president and CEO of Siemens Industry, Inc.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
