Company Awarded First Task Order for Naval Bases in California 

Schneider Electric has been named one of three firms awarded a firm-fixed price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity multiple award contract in support of the Advance Metering Infrastructure Program at U.S. Navy and Marine Corps installations worldwide. The contract work will include designing, procurement, installation, testing and sustainment of building-level, advanced metering solutions in support of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 for Navy and Marine Corps requirements on a worldwide basis. This will allow the Navy and Marine Corps to cost-effectively allocate and manage energy resources, including electricity, natural gas, steam and water commodities. 

“Schneider Electric is uniquely qualified to implement this contract with the U.S. Navy and Marines Corps because of our knowledge of all relevant federal energy legislation and policy, along with more than 100 years in the electrical industry“ said Francis Moxey, national business development manager, Power Management Organization. “Furthermore, Schneider Electric offers a full portfolio of metering and monitoring products and solutions that provide the tools to deliver fast and quantifiable return on investment by helping to manage the quality and cost of energy.“ 

The contract was procured via the Navy Electronic Commerce Online Web site, with seven proposals received. As part of the agreement, the three selected contractors may compete for task orders under the terms and conditions of the awarded ID/IQ contract. The maximum program dollar value for all three contracts is $250 million. Work will be performed at various Navy and Marine Corps installations worldwide, and is expected to be completed by September 2013. The Navy's Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Program is managed by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) for the Commander Naval Installations Command (CNIC) Port Hueneme, California. 

Additionally, Schneider Electric was recently awarded first ID/IQ MAC task order for the Navy Base-that includes Port Hueneme, Point Mugu, and San Nicolas Island. The task order installation performance work statement encompasses a quantity of 258 meter endpoints. This task order will begin the first phase of the Advanced Metering Infrastructure Project. Port Hueneme is a coastal installation northwest of Los Angeles, integrated with a deep-water port and covering an area approaching 1,600 acres. Point Mugu is also a coastal installation, located approximately five miles from Port Hueneme and covering about 4,500 acres. San Nicolas Island is an island of over thirteen thousand acres that is entirely owned and operated by the US Navy, and lies approximately sixty-five nautical miles southwest of Point Mugu.
