Siemens Government Technologies to lead Los Alamos National Lab modernization.

Siemens Government Technologies is proud to extend its long-standing partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy through the award of a new task order under DoE's Energy Savings Performance Contract for energy efficiency and resiliency improvements at Los Alamos National Laboratory, under an initial $45.8M implementation contract award. Over the anticipated 21-year performance period, total value of the contract is projected at $555M. Relied upon for its mission critical work in maintaining the nation's nuclear deterrent, LANL is seeking to replace and enhance an aging and inefficient steam plant constructed more than 60 years ago, responsible for heat and limited cogeneration of power to buildings that house more than half of employees on the LANL campus. Drawing from the expertise of Siemens' Power and Gas and Power Generation Services divisions, the contract will be implemented in multiple phases. The first phase includes upgrading an existing gas turbine and installing a new generator, installing two new high efficiency boilers and a new high-pressure gas line with a new gas compressor for maximum efficiency and throughput. Subsequent phases will incorporate the replacement of a failing steam condensate return system with a protected durable condensate return - essential for greater heating capacity and flexibility as well as the introduction of a complete combined heat and power system with auxiliary boilers for redundant heat capacity. Additionally, Siemens will provide vital operations, maintenance, repair and replacement services as appropriate throughout the life cycle of the project. Taken as a whole, the full project will significantly increase LANL's resiliency and energy security, while simultaneously reducing energy, water and maintenance costs.
