Abstract : In March 1995, Affiliated Engineers SE, Inc. (AESE) was retained by the Mobile District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to perform a Limited Energy Study for Holston Army Ammunition Plant, Kingsport, Tennessee. The field survey of existing conditions was completed in May 1995. The results of this field survey were subsequently tabulated and used to generate single line building drawings on Autocad. This report summarizes the results obtained from this field investigation and the analysis of various alternative Energy Conservation Opportunities (ECO's). To develop the field data into various alternative ECO concepts or models, we utilized an 'Excel' spreadsheet to tabulate and compare energy consumption, installation and operating costs for various ECO's. These ECO's were then analyzed for suitability for the Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP) using the government's software package called Life Cycle Cost in Design (LCCID). The Scope of Work developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers gave the following tasks: (1) Perform a field survey to gather information on existing operating conditions and equipment at Hoiston Army Ammunition Plant, Area 'A'. (2) Perform a field survey to gather information on existing boilers laid away at Volunteer Army Ammunition Plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. (3) Provide a list of suggested ECO's. (4) Analyze ECO's using the LCCID program. (5) Perform savings to investment ratio (SIR) calculation. (6) Rank ECO's per SIR's. (7) Provide information on study assumptions and document equations used in calculations. (8) Perform Life Cycle Cost Analysis. (9) Perform Synergism Analysis. (10) Calculate Energy/Cost Ratios. (11) Calculate Benefit/Cost Ratios. (12) Provide documentation in the form of Project Development Brochures (PDB's) and DD Form 1391.
