In January 2005, researchers from the Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory ERDC-CERL led a Level I Process and Energy Optimization Assessment PEOA at Sierra Army Depot SIAD to identify process,energy, and environmental opportunities that could significantly improve the installations mission readiness and competitive position. This Assessment is a part of showcase studies conducted by CERL at four sites Rock Island Arsenal, Corpus Christi AD, Sierra AD,and Tobyhanna AD, which were selected by the Army Materiel Command to demonstrate energy reduction opportunities at industrial organic facilities and to promote the Lean concept and ways how to render these facilities more efficient. The scope of the Level I analysis included improvements in painting, welding, and mechanical repair shops, building envelope, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. This report gives detailed results of the Level I study. The study recommended 15 process and energy improvement projects,11 of which were quantified economically. It was estimated by investing about 892k to implementing these 11 projects SIAD could achieve annual savings of 545k with an average simple payback of 1.6 years.
