As one of seven U.S. Army garrisons in Europe, Army Garrison Ansbach is comprised of nine installations in the German state of Bavaria. The garrison provides support to the 12th Combat Aviation Brigade, the community's largest tenant unit, and supports a total current population of more than 7,000 Soldiers, civilians and family members working and living in the Ansbach area. Work under the project will occur across five installations totaling more than 6.9 million sq.ft., featuring upgrades in interior and exterior lighting, advanced utility monitoring and control systems for enhanced occupant comfort, building automation for more efficient heating and cooling, and solar photovoltaic installation on two buildings to reduce carbon footprint and enhance energy resiliency efforts.
The total project provides long-term improvements to USAG Ansbach’s operations and infrastructure while also improving installation safety and reducing energy costs. Additionally, Siemens will provide vital operations, maintenance, repair and replacement services as appropriate throughout the life cycle of the project.
“Our team looks forward to helping USAG Ansbach achieve energy savings while incorporating renewable energy generation with reduced operating and maintenance costs across its operations,“ said John Ustica, president and CEO of Siemens Government Technologies. “We are proud of our continued work for the Army in Europe and look forward to additional opportunities to help them meet energy and climate goals well into the future.“
