$40 million contract spans work over a 20-year period

The University of New Hampshire recently awarded long-term energy related operations, maintenance, and consulting contracts to Emcor Group. The new contracts, totaling more than $40 million over a 20-year period, build upon an existing relationship established in May 2004 for the design and construction of a new cogeneration and additional chilled water facilities at the university's main campus in Durham, N.H.

As part of the new multi-year contracts, the company’s Energy & Technology on-site team will manage contracted services for energy infrastructure, including the maintenance of remote boilers, chiller plants, high-voltage equipment, and street and parking lot lighting as well as provide consulting and construction management services to support energy master planning, modeling, and construction management services for energy infrastructure projects.

These contracts are in addition to a $27 million project the company was awarded for the design and construction of a new 7.5MW central cogeneration facility and a new 2,400-ton chilled water plant initially supplying 1,200 tons. These facilities provide HVAC, hot and cold water, and electrical power to the university, a project that’s estimated to substantially reduce energy costs over the next 20 years.
