Naval Station Great Lakes
Great Lakes, Illinois
Project Background
Naval Facilities Engineering Command
(NAVFAC) Midwest awarded a $57-million,
multi-year project to decentralize the
Naval Station (NS) Great Lakes steam
delivery system to Indiana-based
Kroeschell ESG, L.L.C. a joint venture of
energy services provider Energy Systems
Group (ESG) and Kroeschell, Inc.
Over a three year period, Kroeschell ESG,
L.L.C. joint venture will disconnect 110 of
the base’s buildings from the central steam
plant and instead install individual heating
and hot water systems in each building.
This will improve the base’s overall energy
efficiency and save the Navy money.
“We’re looking forward to working with our
contract partners on this very important
project over the next few years,” said NAVFAC
Midwest Commanding Officer Capt. Scott
Bernotas. “This is one of the most significant
projects we’ve undertaken within the region.
Not only is it large in scope, but also in
future benefit. Decentralizing Great Lakes’
steam distribution is really about preparing
the base and Navy Region Midwest for a
future where resources are more scarce.”
Strategies & Solutions
New infrastructure, including new gas
lines and other supporting systems,
will be installed around the base.
The existing aging steam lines will be
removed in a follow-on phase of the
project, to be completed in 2017.
NAVFAC anticipates this project will save
the base around $9 million per year and
reduce the base’s overall energy intensity,
the amount of energy used per square
foot of occupied space, by 21 percent.
