A new energy efficiency project at Tinker Air Force Base is expected to save more than $626 million in energy and operational costs at the Air Logistics Complex.
Honeywell Building Solutions on Monday announced the $243 million facility modernization project, which is expected to reduce energy consumption by 23 percent and save the base $20.5 million a year in energy and operational costs.
"Beyond saving energy and lowering operating costs, this is an opportunity to modernize Tinker Air Force Base's industrial operations," Honeywell President John Rajchert said in a statement. "Honeywell is pleased to partner with the Air Force in this endeavor and help them achieve operational excellence through software, energy and industrial process upgrades.
"This project is not only a big win for Honeywell, but also for the U.S. government, military and taxpayers as we drive sustainability in our country by improving the infrastructure to boost operational and energy efficiency."
