Abstract : Lutz, Daily & Brain Consulting Engineers was commissioned by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (COE) to develop an Energy Engineering Analysis Program (EEAP) of the Fort Leonard Wood Boiler and Chiller Plants. The EEAP consists of several phases including but not limited to data collection, data refinement, on-site inspection, concept development, performance testing, preparation of programming documents, and documentation of alternatives and recommendations. The Scope of Work (SOW) of this Contract has been modified to include the use of propane instead of No. 6 fuel oil for the feasible Energy Conservation Opportunities (ECO) calculations. This fuel change was analyzed because the Base has initiated a program of switching from No. 6 fuel oil to liquid propane for all of their boiler plants. The results of all ECO calculations using No. 6 fuel oil have been included at the request of the COE for record purposes. Nonfeasible ECO's were not rerun for propane, because changing the fuel from No. 6 fuel oil to propane, a higher cost fuel, would not make the ECO's feasible. This submittal presents finding of the EEAP and provides recommendations for implementation. In detail this report presents the following information: (1) Determine the efficiency of the boiler/chiller plants by appropriate tests. (2) Survey the boiler/chiller plants to determine if the efficiency can be improved by the repair, addition, or modification of equipment and recommend improvements. (3) Evaluate the control system and recommend changes, repairs, or new controls which will improve the efficiency of the plants. (4) Review operation and maintenance procedures and provide site specific recommendations which will increase the efficiency of the plants to the maximum level. (5) Prepare programming and implementation documents.
