Power management company Eaton was contracted by the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center in Huntsville, Alabama, to help upgrade utility monitoring and control systems at U.S. government-operated facilities around the world.
Eaton is one of 13 companies to receive the $2.5 billion shared capacity multiple award task order contract.
Under the Utility and Monitoring Control Systems-IV (UMCS-IV) contract, Eaton will have the opportunity to compete for award of task orders to provide turnkey engineering support for federal electrical, mechanical and automation projects supporting optimized utility automation and control.
If selected for award of the follow-on task orders, Eaton’s work will enable the U.S. government to make infrastructure improvements that enhance mission support, create healthier and safer working and living environments, complete large and small facility improvements that yield immediate energy savings and enhance energy efficiency to help reduce utility costs and reliance on fossil fuels.
The projects will be led by Eaton’s Electrical Engineering Services and Systems Division. The team offers a comprehensive portfolio of services tailored for every stage of a power system's life cycle, whether design, build or support.
