Maintaining the Air Force’s world-class aircraft fleet is a critically important mission. The Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex (ALC) provides Programmed Depot Maintenance (PDM), unscheduled repair activities, and repaint for F-15, C-130, C-5 and C-17 aircraft. The ALC’s ability to perform their mission greatly depends on two compressed air central plants. Southland Energy determined the client’s existing plants were in dire need of upgrades in order to reduce energy usage and improve the quality, accuracy and reliability of the compressed air supply to over 40 mission critical aircraft maintenance facilities and avoid significant annual outage costs.


Southland Energy is partnering with serving utility Georgia Power to provide project development, design, build and maintain services to reduce energy consumption, along with the risk of interruption to production caused by the compressed air system. The integrated effort, which is a federal Utility Energy Services Contract (UESC), will implement 10 essential energy conservation measures, including the design, development and maintenance of a new, $23M central compressed air plant (4000 HP), as well the retrofitting of two existing, interconnected plants (5500 HP) with new piping, electrical service, compressors, air dryers, automation packages, air storage systems, and leak repair. The plants will be designed and installed to provide a capacity of 2N and all work will be completed while existing plant service remains 100% operational.
