Eaton to Help US Army Upgrade Systems at Georgia Facility

PITTSBURGH, Penn. — Power management company Eaton announced a $20 million contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, to lead complete electrical utility upgrades for normal and critical power systems at Fort Gordon in Augusta, Georgia. Under the multi-year agreement, Eaton will provide turnkey engineering services, as well as all necessary power distribution, electrical control and power quality equipment. 

Eaton was awarded the project under the Utility and Monitoring Control Systems-IV (UMCS-IV) contract for U.S. government infrastructure improvements. The work will help Fort Gordon, which is home of the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence, continue to deliver high-quality power with an adaptable, secure and responsive infrastructure. 

“For specialized military installations such as Fort Gordon, it is vital for electrical systems to support critical reliability while offering the flexibility to meet evolving requirements,” said John Stampfel, vice president and general manager, Electrical Engineering Services and Systems Division, Eaton. “With a successful record of deploying electrical system upgrades for U.S. government agencies spanning more than 30 years, Eaton’s engineering, manufacturing and training resources will help Fort Gordon continue to deliver high-quality power to securely support mission needs.”

To help Fort Gordon establish reliable critical power systems in compliance with Uptime Institute Tier IV requirements, Eaton will provide high-power generators, a redundant network of uninterruptible power systems (UPSs), in-row cooling equipment with hot-isle containment, and facility-wide monitoring and control systems. For enhanced reliability and safety, Eaton will also perform system testing and commissioning, as well as comprehensive cybersecurity analysis to help ensure all electrical systems comply with current standards.
