Abstract : The objectives of this Energy Engineering Analysis (EEA) for RRAD were three fold: Develop a systematic plan of projects which will result in reducing energy consumption. Consider renewable energy sources with the objective of establishing an orderly procedure for reducing use of non-renewable energy sources. Determine the feasibility of Total Energy (TE), Selective Energy (SE), and Central Heating Plant (CHP) concepts using alternative fuels. In essence, an assessment of the entire energy picture at RRAD was undertaken. This report is a summary of that effort. RRAD was originally built during 1941 and 1942 as a reserve ordnance depot for the Army. Since then, the missions and activities at RRAD have broadened to the point that it is now one of the largest Army depots in the continental United States. Located just west of Texarkana, Texas, RRAD encompasses an area of approximately 19,886 acres. The primary missions at RRAD are general supply and maintenance of vital Army equipment and ordnance material. The supply activities constitute the stocking, distribution, storage and supply of general Army supplies for the central region of the United States. Supply of vehicles, ammunition and guided missiles from RRAD encompasses a much larger region. The maintenance and repair functions at RRAD consists of the overhaul, modification, conversion and repair of automotive equipment and combat vehicles, missile systems and components, armament, and ammunition. Approximately 5500 people are currently employed at RRAD to carry out its mission.
