Siemens has begun working on infrastructure improvements for Orem, Utah, located adjacent to Provo and 45 miles south of Salt Lake City.

Expected to save the city an estimated $11.4 million in energy and operational cost savings and capital cost avoidance over 15 years, the initial project phase of this performance contract will allow Orem to use new technologies to make necessary capital improvements to meet the needs of its growing population and continued economic development.

Energy efficiency measures include upgrading the city’s 5,182 streetlights with LED bulbs, resulting in a projected annual savings of $181,000. The project scope also includes building automation modifications, HVAC enhancements, and building envelope improvements at the city center, public library, public safety building, senior center, recreation center and citywide fire stations.

Future infrastructure improvements may include upgrades to elevators, boilers and generators, as well as water-saving technologies.
