Abstract : This summary was prepared to document the results of Hayes, Seay, Mattern and Mattern's energy engineering analysis at Radford Army Ammunition Plant. The work, undertaken to expand the plant wide energy system plan, included 147 buildings on the site. After surveying nineteen typical buildings and interviewing plant personnel, the Architect Engineer investigated past and present energy consumption at the plant and began to formulate projects for conservation. As a result of this work, eight ECIP projects were recommended for increments A and B. A number of other projects were investigated under Increments F and G. The projects under Increments A, B, and G will result in a combined savings of 349,88O MBTU per year. The projects under Increment F, including energy modifications made by RAAP in 1981 and 1982, will result in an annual savings of 248,204 MBTU. The analysis also included a steam trap study and recommendations for insulating steam lines, which are presented as appendices to the main report.
