EGS Wins Facilities Services Contract From US BEP
EGS will be responsible for supporting around the clock the underlying infrastructure at the facility, including its fire and life safety system, building automation system, central chiller plant, water treatment, UPS systems, generators and vertical transportation.
EGS will also oversee several unique industrial systems, such as industrial shredders, compressed air systems, and vacuum systems.
The Western Currency facility’s printing presses account for more than half of the paper currency printed in the US. In January 2010, the facility printed approximately $2.6 billion dollars in $1 and $20 dollar denominations.
Joseph Gleeson, president of EGS, said: “It’s an honor to have been chosen as a result of a competitive bid process for this very unique assignment which involves so many important aspects of a facility and its critical operations, as well as adherence to rigid standards and specifications. Whereas we always state that Emcor touches millions of lives every day, having the privilege of doing such important work for the Western Currency Facility brings that phrase to life in yet a new way.”
Will EGS benefit with the new contract?
